About The Gladstone Axe The Black Axe Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

William Ewart Gladstone was a prominent British politician, known for serving 12 years as Prime Minister of the UK. He is also famous for signing the Spirits Act of 1860 that allowed for single grain and single malt whiskies to be blended, paving the way for the modern Scotch whisky industry. Gladstone was an axe collector and enthusiast who enjoyed felling trees. "The Grand Old Man," as he was known, served as the inspiration for The Gladstone Axe ― a brand that was launched by Biggar and Leith. Coincidentally, the founder and CEO of Biggar and Leith is the great-great-grandson of William Gladstone.

Gladstone Axe whisky is crafted with 100% malted barley. It's a blend of whisky from 14 different Highland and Islay distilleries that is aged in Scotland in American oak ex-bourbon casks that impart the spirit with a gentle sweetness. Crafted to be a versatile spirit, Gladstone Axe American Oak is sweet, oaky, and smooth with hints of smoke. It's equally delicious as a sipper, on the rocks, or in various cocktails. The Black Axe is the second expression in their lineup. It features a higher percentage of Islay whisky, making it smokier and spicier.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
