Laphroaig is a Scotch Whisky
distillery in Islay, an island off the west coast of Scotland. To date, Laphroaig is the only whisky that carries the Royal Warrant of Appointment by the Prince of Wales, which means it is a product supplied to the royal family, and carries the seal on its packaging.
The name Laphroaig comes from the area where the distillery is located, at the head of Loch Laphroaig.
The correct pronunciation of Laphroaig is luh-FROYG
. The "a" in Laphroaig is pronounced like the "a" in the word "about", which approximates an "uh" sound. The "ph" is pronounced as an "f" and the sequence of "oai" is pronounced like the "oi" in the word "void".
Laphroaig also produced an excellent advertisement with Scottish poet Elvis McGonagall reciting a poem where he calls it the "The “How-Do-You-Pronounce-It?” malt"
