The Eden Mill story started with a mission to revive the lost art of distilling and brewing in St Andrews. As Scotland’s first single-site distillery and brewery, making gin, whisky and beer, Eden Mill spirit is created by their distillers in copper pot-stills and exhibits a wide range of flavours from botanicals sourced from the local area, as well as from around the world. As creators of craft gin, whisky and beers, the team of distillers have the opportunity to marry the best practices from all these disciplines. Eden Mill’s team is challenged with applying modern techniques and understanding to time honoured traditional methods. An appreciation of the intricacies of barrel ageing and quality wood is one benefit we enjoy from this special status. They apply this in order to develop truly innovative creations, such as their bourbon-aged Oak Gin. Sharing their passion is not a glib marketing slogan for their team. It is simply what they love doing.
St Andrews is the renowned home of golf, and the arts of brewing and distilling were once integral to the town. Based on the site of a historic distillery on the banks of the River Eden, Eden Mill were the first to make spirits in the region for 150 years.
Few distilleries are as fortunate as us. We have the paradise of the Eden Estuary on the doorstep, and we source botanicals from the local fields, forests and coasts to represent the best of Scotland. In 2015, we launched our Golf Gin in homage to this. Our goal is to further the spirit and provenance of St Andrews, and with this in mind, we invite you to share our passion.
The Eden Mill story couldn’t be complete without the mention of our Gin and the contribution it has made to the growth of the company and the Eden Mill brand. Scotland is at the heart of a global gin movement. A big part of the Eden Mill story is the fact that we have created the perfect storm to harness the creativity required to make gin. Our customer base has grown at a tremendous rate for which we are grateful. This is a reflection of our fantastic distilling talent originating from the deeply rooted understanding of whisky, a cultural drive and desire to innovate, and plentiful sources of interesting and unique ingredients. Our team of master distillers create new recipes from the vast source of botanicals around us. Gin fans come from far and wide to take part in the regular gin distillery tours.
