The team from Adelphi has decided to make it a hat trick and we’re absolutely delighted that they’ll be returning to Cupar in March 2020!
This independent bottler, with strong links to Fife, bottles single cask, cask strength whisky with the number of bottles ranging from 100 to 700. The whisky is all naturally coloured, non-chill filtered and absolutely delicious.
Focusing primarily on flavour, Alex Bruce and the Adelphi team only accept around 4% of the casks they are offered. Only once these special casks are identified and selected, bottling of these single cask, limited edition whiskies can take place.
As for the Adelphi team, well, they’re a busy bunch of people. As well as their single cask offerings, Adelphi has collaborated with Fusion Whisky to create whiskies fused from Scotch and single malt whisky sourced from distilleries around the world. As well as creating The Glover in 2015 – a fusion of Scotch and Japanese malt whiskies – we’ve also seen subsequent releases including The E & K (Scotch and Indian whiskies) and Winter Queen (Scotch and Dutch whiskies).
Earlier in 2014, the company also opened their very own distillery; Ardnamurchan. Situated on the (you guessed it) Ardnamurchan peninsula near Glenbeg, the Ardnamurchan spirit has already garnered much praise from the whisky community. This year, the distillery won the Community Contribution of the Year at the inaugural Scottish Whisky Awards and, Operations Director, Gordon Hamilton, recently saw his hard work in the Scotch whisky industry recognised and rewarded by being inaugurated as a Keeper of the Quaich in October.
We’re absolutely delighted that the team(s) behind Adelphi, Ardnamurchan and Fusion Whisky will be returning to the 2020 Fife Whisky Festival on 7th March. Be sure to pay them a visit on the day – they’ll have plenty of great whisky for you to choose from!
