Scope and Content Intermediate spirit-receiver, still-house, Lagavulin Distillery, Islay, Argyll Lagavulin is an example of the type of distillery that gradually developed after early 19th-century changes in the law made commercial distilling easier. Spirits from the early stages of distillation are stored in the intermediate spirit-receiver, a wooden-staved barrel. To make whisky, barley is allowed to germinate into malt. This is dried, milled and mixed with hot water to make wort which is fermented with yeast. The resulting wash is distilled to produce whisky which must then be matured in casks.
