Scope and Content Furnace doors, kiln, 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. The kiln is used to dry wet 'green' malt, halting the germination process. In Islay, peat is the principal fuel, and is loaded into its furnace through these iron doors. 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. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
