A brand new Fusion from independent bottlers Adelphi, the Kincardine brings together single malts from Scottish distilleries Glen Elgin and Macallan and India’s Amrut.

The Kincardine follows the Glover series in bringing together whiskies from around the world. It is named after the 9th Earl of Elgin and 13th Earl of Kincardine Victor Bruce, a historic figure of Scotland.

A liberal politician who spent his life in the public service, Bruce served as Viceroy and Govener of India from 1894 to 1899 (he was known as ‘The Walking Viceroy’). During that period he oversaw improvements to India’s railway system, worked to combat drought and famine, helped stabilise the currency and managed fears over the country’s border with Afghanistan.

He was also the Great Grandfather of Adelphi’s Alex Bruce, the Managing Director and driving force behind Adelphi’s creations. Alex created the Kincardine with Scotch whisky icon and regular co-conspirator Charles Maclean.

The youngest in this expression is the 7-year-old Amrut (which is quite old for an Indian whisky, given their 10 percent angels share evaporative loss each year).

Of the Fusion Alex Bruce said, “With The Kincardine, we’ve blended two single casks of malt whisky from Amrut Distillery in Bangalore with Scotch whisky from Glen Elgin and Macallan distilleries.

“The fruitiness of the mature Speyside malts works beautifully with the Indian whisky, creating a very complex, international flavour. It has its own unique profile, showing both the individual elements that different maturation climates can offer and, at the same time, capturing a new overall style. I was really excited by both the challenge and the outcome.”

The outturn for this edition was 820 bottles.
