Càirdeas 2022 Warehouse 1

£92.00 incl. VAT £131.43/l incl. VAT - excl. Shipping £76.67 excl. VAT

Matured in our iconic warehouse a skipping-stone’s throw from the Islay coast. For flavours of peat, smoke and sea salt that soar with bitter maritime character.

Our Càirdeas expression for 2022 reflects how Friends bring out more in each other. This limited-edition single malt, aged in first-fill ex-Maker’s Mark bourbon barrels, dials up our quintessential Laphroaig taste. Classic flavours are elevated by a coastal character that can only come from sea spray and storms. It’s a match made in Islay.

Warehouse 1’s rare four-storey construction, with varying levels of temperature and humidity, and exposure to rugged conditions tease out our enigmatic flavours and lend a maritime quality to the final whisky. Bottled at a fixed strength of 52.2% for a memorable experience to share with your Friends.

Càirdeas is exclusively for our Friends of Laphroaig. Please make sure you're logged in to purchase.

Make your bottle as bold as our flavour

Bold, unique, and uncompromising: A bottle of Laphroaig is a truly thoughtful gift. Now, it can be all those things plus a little more. With our new bottle engraving and gift wrapping, the gift of Laphroaig has leveled up. These new features are exclusively available on our site, and just in time for the holidays. Say sláinte with Laphroaig, and so much more with the bottle.


Wrap your Laphroaig with love

When it comes to giving, no perfect gift is complete without thoughtful wrapping to match. We’re excited to introduce special gift wrapping and a personalized card, available for any bottle of Laphroaig purchased on our site. Whether wrapping is a wee bit tough for you, or you simply want to make the moment more memorable, your Laphroaig is wrapped with passion and precision, and a completely unique paper to boot.


Laphroaig that lasts a lifetime

We would never expect a bottle of Laphroaig to last a long time. It’s a wee bit too tasty. But with our new bottle engraving, you can add a message that lasts forever. From important dates to inside jokes, or even a simple “I love you,” a special message on your bottle is as meaningful as the spirit itself. So even after the good stuff is gone, you’ll have a sentiment that outlasts the Scotch.

Taste all of our classic Laphroaig flavours amplified in one glass.


Each year we craft a limited edition malt to celebrate the Friends of Laphroaig. Called Càirdeas, which means 'friendship' in Gaelic, each annual release features a new, special whisky that stands apart from our core range. 

The 2022 Càirdeas honors our iconic Warehouse 1. Costant sea spray and storm drenchings lend a rich shoreline astringeny to the classic Laphroaig flavours of peat, smoke, and salt. Warehouse 1's rare four-storey construction, with variying levels of temperature and humidity, exploits its exposed position on our shoreline to tease out these enigmatic flavours.

Bottled at a fixed strength of 52.2%, this release honors a treasured partner whose contribution to our reknowned flavor profile is now given well deserved recognition.


The legend of Laphroaig spans over 200 years. Founded in 1815, our legacy is defined by the dedication, craftmanship and kinship passed down by generations of masterful distillers. You can taste our island heritage in every bottle. It’s a place like no other that inspires the deeply complex character captured in each expression. And once you get a taste for our island, it’s impossible not to love our whisky for a lifetime.
