A Tasty Scotch Melting Cup.

Here’s another Scottish tipple with a legendary ancestor it honors. Our man, William Ewart Gladstone, was a long-term Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, the one who signed The Spirits Act of 1860 and allowed for the birth of Scotch Whisky as we love it.

The brand he inspires, thus part of Biggar & Leith, only uses the best blended-Whisky from the Scottish Highlands, with the intent to condense the distinctive traits of Scotch into two clear messages.
Here’s where the two Scotch styles The Gladstone Axe employs come into action. There’s the American Oak Whisky and The Black Axe.

The American Oak Whisky is carefully crafted from 100% malted barley, and various Single Malts from Islay and the Highlands matured in ex-Bourbon barrels. It hits the shelves at 41% ABV in a pretty spectacular bottle. It hits the taste buds with sweet mellowness and a lil’ kick. Make sure you try one, mate!

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
