The Sändebud Fusion 6 Year Old Adelphi / Ardnamurchan & High Coast
Adelphi has a rich history, operating as a distillery in the Gorbals district of Glasgow from 1825, producing spirit from the waters of Loch Katrine. The distillery ceased production in the early 20th century however and several changes in ownership culminating in a takeover by Distillers Company Ltd in 1902. The Adelphi name was revived in 1993 by Jamie Walker, great-grandson of former distillery owner Archibald. With a lineage of whisky expertise he operated Adelphi as private bottling company, which now in the hands of Keith Falconer and David Houston, continues the fine work he began of bottling top quality expressions from Scotland's finest distilleries. The company is now also distilling their own whisky at Ardnamurchan distillery in Glenbeg.
The Sändebud Fusion is made-up of just two single malts, Scotland’s Ardnamurchan and Sweden’s High Coast. Both distilleries have contributed peated and unpeated spirit to the blend and the result has been bottled at cask strength.
The bottle pays tribute to the Scottish-born businessman Colin Campbell (1686-1757) who was one of the three founding directors of the Swedish East India Company. Campbell oversaw the companies first expedition in 1732 whilst also acting as Minister Plenipotentiary of the King of Sweden to the Chinese Emperor.
