“The Adelphi ‘Dancey Man’ a mid-19th century cartoon, depicts Sir William Gladstone, as Chancellor of the Exchequer, performing an energetic Pas de Bas over an ear of barley, to celebrate the passing of a new law that revenue could only be raised on the amount of whisky left in each cask after maturation, and not the level that it was originally filled to. With the penalties for long term maturation lifted, scotch whisky was kept in the cask until it was truly fit to consume”.

Notes from Adelphi.
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′ 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 Ardnamuchan 2018 was released.
A new release of single malt whisky is planned for 2021.
Information from Adelphi Distillery
The Ardnamurchan Distillery
Located in Glenbeg opened in July 2014,to begin producing what would eventually mature into world-class single malts.
They produce two signature styles of spirit, one peated and one unpeated, maturing quietly in their warehouse in American and Spanish oak casks until they reach the peak of perfection.
If you visit the distillery you will see how their exciting distillery blends innovative and traditional techniques to produce the unique and characterful Ardnamurchan spirit.
