"We can confirm that all of our Laphroaig products, including the Port Wine Casks, are Vegan-friendly as well as being gluten free. "

Company email (September 2022) re: OTR Cocktails
"Our OTR cocktails are not certified as vegan, therefore we are unable to confirm that they are suitable for individuals practicing veganism."

"Beam Suntory acquired OTR in 2020. For consistency in responses that relate to Regulatory issues (such as inquiries about ingredients or certifications like vegan products), all responses must be passed through our Beam Suntory Regulatory team by the OTR team.

With the acquisition, the production location of our cocktails changed. Since it is not a certified vegan facility, we are not able to claim that our cocktails are vegan. "
