Maltings Floor at Laphroaig Distillery, Islay

This evening, I am providing information on the collection of world-renowned whisky distilleries on the Scottish island Islay.

Islay (pronounced Eye-la) is an island situated off the coast of Scotland, directly west of Glasgow. Origin of the name is uncertain; it may be derived from ‘island divided in two’,’ law island’ or possibly named after a Pictish princess named Ile.
