James Eadie was a Scottish brewer who established a significant brewery in 1854. Born near Gleneagles in Scotland, he was one of fourteen children and left school at the age of fourteen to work for his living. The company that is named after him was founded by Eadie's great-great-grandson, Rupert Patrick, and releases a large range of very interesting and affordable single malt whiskies.
From just down the road in Glenrothes, only 265 bottles of this whisky have been made from a single refill Hogshead. This grain whisky is soft, elegant and full of buttered popcorn and caramel flavours.
Ignore everything you've been told about whisky needing to be over 10 years old. The barrel selection has improved so much over the past few decades that young whisky is very much drinkable now, and delicious.
