Adelphi Masterclass With Alex Bruce


As part of a whirlwind visit to Australia and New Zealand, Alex Bruce – Managing Director of independent whisky bottler Adelphi and their distillery Ardnamurchan – will be returning to the Oak Barrel for a masterclass tasting.

Bruce is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable persons about Scotch whisky to have ever graced our Cellar Room, so we’re delighted to welcome him back. He’ll regale us with stories from Adelphi and the distilleries they work with, and Ardnamurchan, which already has a cult status despite not yet having a whisky on the market.

(The release of their very first ‘spirit’ sold out in mere hours.)

On the night we will go through a selection of the Adelphi range, tasting single cask releases that have been sourced and selected by Bruce and Adelphi collaborator, industry icon Charles Maclean.

We’ll also sample a couple of Adelphi ‘creations’, the staples that underpin the bottler’s worldwide reputation.

Full line-up of bottles to be confirmed in the coming days, but join us this July for an evening of pure Scotch whisky fascination.

Tickets are strictly limited and this tasting is part of the Sydney Whisky Fair Masterclass series, which allows us to host some truly awesome nights of whisky in the lead up to this year’s Sydney Whisky Fair.

What we’ll be tasting:

Adelphi Glenborrodale Batch 3
Adelphi Liddesdale (21-Year-Old Bunnahabhain) Batch 10
Adelphi Breath Of Speyside
Adelphi Glover Batch 4 (Scotch – Japanese single malt hybrid)
