SCOTLAND - since 1993
Adelphi has a colourful history rooted in Scottish tradition with a distillery that opened in 1825 and closed its doors in the early 20th century to then be reinstated as a brand in 1993 by descendants of the previous owners. At that point Adelphi started as an independent bottler of single cask drams before adding the Ardnamurchan distillery to their operations in 2014. On their website Adelphi highlight the selective process they undergo to source the finest expressions of whisky with a focus on rarity, maturity and flavour.
Renowned Whisky expert Charles MacLean sits on Adelphi's panel of experts for selecting their casks who guarantee that the high standards of releases can be upheld at Adelphi. Since the start of their operations, Adelphi has become a major player on the Independent Bottler scene with around 600 whiskies in their portfolio.
Next to predominantly Scottish Single Malts, Adelphi also produces a range of blends (Breath of the Isles, Breath of Speyside, Breath of Islay, etc. ..), Irish bottlings (Limerick Slanay) and a Japanese (Hanyu) /Scottish blend: 'The Glover'. The first 22 yo release of that blend has received raving reviews and is now highly sought after.
