James Eadie (1827-1904) was a Scottish brewer who established a significant brewery in 1854. Reported in local papers as a self-made man, Mr Eadie was a quiet individual whose hard work and indomitable perseverance earned him and his family a good living. Aside from beer, the Eadie family had their own recipe for a Blended Scotch whisky. Only a few bottles of the original James Eadie whisky remain. To our knowledge all of them are in family hands.
Glen Spey distillery was built in 1878 by James Stuart & Co. under the name 'Mill of Rothes'. It actually started its life as an oatmeal mill - founder James Stuart was a corn merchant before he ventured into the whisky world. The distillation equipment was simply added to the existing mill in the years before the Glen Spey distillery was sold to the Gilbey company of London in 1887. It expanded production capacity from two to four stills in 1970. During its history, the distillery has released only a handful of official bottlings. The distillery's product is currently primarily used for J&B products.
