Adelphi Selection

Scotland’s most acclaimed bottler of rare single cask and limited edition single malt whisky, FUSION WHISKY AND SPIRITS.

We exist to identify the very small number of casks that have produced the ultimate whiskies and spirits. The criteria for selection include rarity and maturity, but above all flavour.

“Adelphi is like the Linn of hi-fi, the Aston Martin of motoring, the Gleneagles of hotels – basically, if you see anything with that name on a bottle, you know you’re in for a serious treat.”

Andy Clark, The Herald, Scotland

Ardnamurchan Spirit Award Winning


The Ardnamurchan Spirit series has been a successful way for us to share the direction of our early sherry maturation. The 2016/AD & 2017/AD Spirits were limited to just 2,500 bottles for the world, 2018 & 2019 were doubled to 5,000 bottles. AD stands for both Anno Domini and Ardnamurchan Distillery. All these releases have been matured in experimental 55-litre American oak ex-Sherry octaves, Spanish oak ex-Sherry hogsheads and Spanish oak ex-Sherry butts.

Exceptional whiskies Fusion whisky


In 2015, Adelphi was tasked with promoting the life of Thomas Blake Glover with a new whisky brand.

Born in Fraserburgh, Glover moved East in his late teens and, post the Treaty of Amity and Commerce in 1858 between Japan and Great Britain, he sought to bring western trade and culture to Japan, founded companies that have since flourished (including Mitsubishi), was the first foreigner to be awarded the Order of the Rising Sun, and is still revered in Japan to this day with some two million visitors to his house in Nagasaki each year.

The plan was simple: Blend of Scotch with Japanese within the UK. In practice, a little more difficult, but Adelphi developed a method, and also managed to secure a cask of extraordinarily rare whisky from Japan.

Initially developed in two guises, the ultra-premium 22yr old, and premium 14yr old Glovers were simultaneously launched in Aberdeen and Tokyo and received international press coverage, including primetime BBC news. Both versions sold out overnight.

Since this initial launch in 2015, Adelphi has gone on to produce a further 3 Glovers, and has also introduced new collaborative blends with the Netherlands (The Winter Queen), Australia (The Brisbane) and India (The E&K).  All of the fusion whiskies are named after Scots who have been highly influential in that partner country.

The long term goal is not only to celebrate the relationships built up with key partner distilleries around the world, but also use Adelphi’s own Ardnamurchan malt whisky as the Scottish base product.
