We don’t make friends easily, but the ones we do are for life – that is a longstanding saying on Islay and one from we do not depart in the Friends of Laphroaig. Established in kind in 1994, Friends of Laphroaig is a tight-knit, earth-spanning circle of fans, friends, and followers of our noted distillery. Never short of an opinion or two they help Laphroaig explore new expressions, attend tastings and sometimes even visit the distillery at Laphroaig’s home on Islay
To reward the loyalty of its following, each year we launch exclusive bottlings within the Càirdeas (meaning ‘friendship’ in Gaelic) series. Each year, each limited-edition bottle is specially crafted for Friends of Laphroaig by Laphroaig's very own distillery manager.
The 2019 Càirdeas Triple Wood Cask Strength is barrier filtered and bottled at cask strength to create a punchy dram with Laphroaig’s signature richness of flavour and smoky taste. We recommend you add twice as much water as whisky to enjoy this punchy dram
