Tasting Notes-Adelphi-Bunnahabhain 10 Year Old 59.3%
Sorry not available at present.
Bunnahabhain means ‘mouth of the river in Gaelic’. It’s origin can be traced back to 1879 when the idea of an Islay Distillery Company was created and the distillery built in 1883 beside the beautiful Bunnahabhain Bay on the
Isle of Islay. If you stand for a moment your senses will smell the scent of the salt on the wind.
The distillery relied on sea trade and boats were sent from the village pier full of casks of whisky to the mainland.
Sadly in 1930 the distillery closed due to an economic downturn after the Great War but opened again 7 years later. Over the years Islay hasn’t changed much – the scenery is stunning. New roads have been built making it easier to travel around the Island. Over the years demand soared, new stills installed in 1963 and production increased. Investment also increased, packaging was modernised and a visitor centre added.
Staff make you feel welcome, the whisky tours are popular creating a great atmosphere.
Notes from Bunnahabhain
Adelphi Independent Bottlers
The distillery was built in 1826 by Charles and David Gray on the banks of the River Clyde, Glasgow. In the 1840’s blended whisky was made and in 1860 a law was passed allowing Scotch whisky to be matured tax-free and sold.
In 1880 Walker and Co. bought over Adelphi injecting capital to expand the distillery and make grain whisky as well as malt whisky.
The Loch Katrine distillery became on of the largest distilleries in Scotland with output of over 500.000 gallons.
In 1903 Adelphi was bought again by the Distillers Co. Sadly in 1906 one of the wash-backs in the distillery collapsed causing fatalities and malt distilling ceased on the site. However in 1907 grain distilling and cask maturation still continued even though pot stills ceased production of malt whisky.
Over the years the bonded warehouse closed in 1968, and the Adelphi distillery closed in 1971.
In 1993 Jamie Walker great grand-son of Archibald Walker revived the Adelphi name as an independent bottler to explore malt whisky and make a limited number of rare, well aged and top quality malt whisky.
In 2007-2012 there was the idea of building a new distillery and plans were granted. By 2014 the first spirit was produced at Ardnamurchan distillery and in 2016 the first bottling released and sold out. A second bottling in 2017 was also sold out and a third bottling in Ardnamurchan 2018 was released.
