James Eadie Ltd was founded by Rupert Patrick in 2016. Rupert is James Eadie’s great-great-grandson, who has held positions at Diageo, Beam and Ian Macleod Distillers. James Eadie founded a brewery in Burton-on-Trent in 1854, the same year he developed the Trade Mark X Scotch blend. The blend was extremely popular and was sold to Eadie’s chain of public houses throughout the 19th century. In 1933 James’s business was sold to Bass who continued producing the blend till 1947. The resurrection of the blend along with the structuring of the independent bottling company by Rupert means that James Eadie can be remembered again and his past work can be enjoyed once more. The James Eadie Independent bottling’s consist of cask strength selections from various Scottish distilleries. Each bottle describes the distillery, the abv and the date of distillation and bottling as well as the maturation technique.
The Glen Ord Distillery or also known as The Singleton of Glen Ord is a distillery in the Highland region of Scotland. It is the only remaining single malt producing distillery on the Black Isle. The distillery won awards in 1994 and 1996 for the best single malt at the International Wine & Spirits Competition and also at the Monde Selection in 1996 and 1997. Boasting 7 wash stills and 7 spirits stills the output is a huge 11,500,00 litres of spirit each year used in Diageo blends mostly but also available as single malt.
This single malt whisky was distilled at the Glen Ord distillery in 2011 before being placed in First Fill Bourbon Barrels & Refill Hogsheads and left to mature for about 9 years. In 2021 it was bottled at 46% abv as part of the James Eadie Independent bottling ‘Small Batch’ range.
