Adelphi Private Stock Blended Scotch Whisky


Adelphi Distillery has a bit of a misleading name. As it exists now it is an independent bottler, although they recently built a distillery called Ardnamurchan Distillery in Glenbeg (Est. 2014). The company is named after an actual distillery in Glasgow that started in 1825 and closed in 1902. The great grandson, Jamie Walker, of the last owner of the distillery revived the name for a bottling company.  The company was sold to two lairds and is now managed by Alex Bruce.

Adelphi is mostly known for their single cask, cask strength bottlings which have been highly praised. Apparently only 50 casks are bottle a year for their single cask range.

The Adelphi Private Stock blend is interesting in it’s contrast to their single cask bottlings. Amongst the sea of their ever changing range this seems to have a bit more permanence.
