The second book of the story starts with Warehouse No.1. With the different cask types being brought by Ian Hunter, including ex-bourbon barrels and sherry cask, Ian recognised the need for more capacity to house them. Ian selected the location by the Atlantic shore that would have it’s influencer on the casks and planned a five-phased extension between 1910 and 1924.
It is this icon that we celebrate in book two of the Ian Hunter Story. This is an exquisite, 30 year old Laphroaig Spanish Oak Oloroso Sherry cask in tribute to Ian Hunter.
This series of rare and collectable aged whiskies honours the legacy of one man, Ian Hunter, the last of the Johnston family to own and manage the Laphroaig distillery, between 1908 and 1944. Each release will contain a rare and aged Laphroaig®, set into a beautifully crafted book that will document a part of Ian’s rich legacy. Every year a new chapter will be told, uncovering the extensive history behind Laphroaig and the characters who created it, making this a collection unlike any other, and one that is treasured by Laphroaig fans across the world.
