THE EDEN MILL STORY

Our Story

 

 

Paul Miller established the Eden Mill distillery in 2012 on the banks of the Eden Estuary in St Andrews, it was the first distillery to make spirits in the region in over 150 years. Today, Eden Mill has a wonderful Gin portfolio crafted from the finest botanicals, many foraged from here in and around St Andrews and a unique selection of limited release Single Malts.

 

 

Moving forward, Eden Mill have an ambition to create the finest gins and Scotch Whiskies with minimal environmental impact combining traditional distilling techniques with ground-breaking innovation. Eden Mill are building a stunning new distillery at the mouth of the river Eden, overlooking the iconic, historic town of St Andrews. The new distillery sits at the heart of the University of St Andrews Eden Campus, a unique site dedicated to zero carbon and sustainable businesses and research.

 

 

The St Andrews Link

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.

SUSTAINABILITY

 

We are always striving to create new, innovative and unique ways to improve the sustainability of our products and packaging.

We have introduced our new bespoke, lightweight glass bottle to replace some of our classic ceramic bottles within our gin range.  These new glass bottles are 18% less glass than an industry-standard glass bottle, which results in less waste to begin with. All of our new glass bottles are easily recycled and are created and made in the UK, which results in a low carbon footprint.

Eden Mill Whisky

The Eden Mill story encompasses the uncompromising approach we take in making our whisky. With the history of distilling on our site, the heritage and reputation of St Andrews and the industry experience of our founder we are on a mission to create the ultimate small batch Single malt whisky ranges for discerning drinkers to enjoy.

In 2018 Eden Mill released the first Single Malt whisky to be distilled in St Andrews in over 150 years. The First Bottling was sold at auction and broke the world record for a first release, at £7,100.
