Adelphi Distillery

The Loch Katrine Adelphi Distillery built 1826 by Charles and david gray on the banks of the river Clyde just south of Victoria Bridge on the northern edge of the Gorbals. After many years of troubles in1971 came the final demolition of the Loch Katrine Adelphi Distillery. In 1993 Jamie Walker (the great-grandson of Archibald Walker) revives the Adelphi name as an independent bottler in order to explore the mysteries of malt whisky and to make a limited number of rare, well-aged and top-quality malt whiskies available to the discerning whisky enthusiast. Charles MacLean becomes Adelphi’s "chief nose" In 2003 Jamie approached by Keith Falconer and his neighbour in argyll, Donald Houston, on a recommendation, in order to buy a hogshead of whisky. they were so impressed that they ended up buying the company. Alex Bruce, descendant of the father of modern whisky making, joins Adelphi and begins to establish the Adelphi name among whisky connoisseurs around the world as a purveyor of rare and exceptional single casks. In 2007 there are the first thoughts of building a distillery in order to complete the full circle and service the ever-growing demand for Adelphi’s whiskies. By 2012 planning permission was granted and work began in 2013. Ardnamurchan distillery officially opened by HRH the princess royal on 25th July 2014. The first bottling was released in 2016, the Ardnamurchan 2016 AD. There were 2500 bottles available to the world and it was sold out overnight.
Aromas of lemon peel and salty breeze lead with plenty of maritime peat. The palate features caramelised nuts followed by crisp apple, whilst peaty notes linger with vanilla.
Best served neat.
