EDEN MILL UNVEIL CASK STRENGTH SINGLE MALT

IN CELEBRATION OF HOGMANAY

In celebration of Hogmanay, Eden Mill are delighted to unveil our first-ever Cask Strength Single Malt. The Scots word ‘Hogmanay’ refers to the last day of the year and to the celebration of the coming New Year.  Eden Mill wanted to celebrate Hogmanay this year by releasing a small batch of only 200 bottles of Cask Strength whisky to toast in celebration of 2021. This whisky is a Cask Strength version of our 2020 Release Single Malt, released in celebration of St. Andrews Day earlier this year.

Eden Mill are so proud to showcase the evolution of our cask and spirit as it ages and develops throughout the years. This special release is the first Cask Strength whisky that Eden Mill has ever released and we are very excited to let our audience try our whisky as it tastes straight from the cask in its purest form. 

This liquid, created by our Head Distiller Scott Ferguson, was created by incorporating Bourbon, Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso barrels as well as spirit distilled using Pale, Chocolate, Brown and Crystal Malt Barley.

200 BOTTLE RELEASE /  60.6% ABV / 70CL

EDEN MILL LAUNCHES 2020 SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY ON ST ANDREWS DAY

Award-winning distillers Eden Mill have unveiled an exclusive limited edition 800 bottes of its 2020 Release Single Malt Scotch in time for St. Andrews’ Day.

Retailing at £85, the 2020 Release is the fourth single malt whisky by Eden Mill in three years, since the unveiling of the first bottling in 2017 from their distillery just outside St Andrews. The whisky liquid incorporates bourbon, Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso barrels as well as spirit
distilled using pale, chocolate, brown and crystal malt barley. This expression is reminiscent of light vanilla and toasted cinnamon leading into a spiced fruit finish. Collectors can buy the bottle on its own or as part of a special Eden Mill whisky hamper alongside two new additions to Eden Mill’s hipflask series.

Scott Ferguson, Eden Mill’s head distiller, spoke about the 2020 batch:
“The liquid we have crafted pushes the boundaries of our previous whisky expressions. This small batch of Eden Mill single malt showcases the evolution of cask and spirit, bringing you light vanilla and toasted cinnamon from bourbon barrels, combined with the rich fruit and
subtle spice from our distinctive range of sherry casks, leading to a creamy biscuity finish.”

The launch of Eden Mill’s 2020 Single Malt comes as the distillery celebrates a successful year of sales, with an increase of 600 percent year on year from online sales. Tony Kelly, co-founder of Eden Mill said: “This limited release is a real reflection of the team, our passion and Eden Mill’s pioneering spirit
which has stayed strong throughout 2020. We can’t wait for people to enjoy a dram of our 2020 Single Malt Scotch safely at home this festive season.
We anticipate the new year with excitement and hope as we look forward to the relief a vaccine will bring and also the completion of our new carbon neutral single malt distillery in St Andrews, which will be the first of its kind in Scotland and a significant step in our Eden Mill journey.”

2020 SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY TASTING NOTES

Nose: Sherry fruit forward, with bright fruity notes of raisin and plum and a lively oak spice alongside. Under these sweet notes is a creamy maltiness and light hint of apricot.
Taste: Peppery spice initially, with rich raisin and date sweetness. Spice persists as the sweetness begins to fade, with hints of toasted cinnamon and light vanilla sweetness towards the end, reminiscent of butterscotch candy. Finish: As the spice fades, hints of roasted malt and crumbly shortbread linger. Sweet and spicy notes balance to leave a gentle apricot fruit and subtle cassia spice.

LOVE GIN, LOVE HOSPITALITY

EDEN MILL SUPPORT THE DRINKS TRUST CHARITY WITH DONATIONS FROM LOVE GIN SALES

LOVE GIN, LOVE HOSPITALITY

£2 from every 70cl bottle of Love Gin sold at £30 will help The Drinks Trust (and in Scotland The Ben: Scottish Licenses Trade Benevolent Society) to support wellness services they’ve launched in response to the emerging and likely long-term effects of the Covid-19 crisis on hospitality, including counselling services, help with sleep and insomnia and mindful drinking courses aimed at nurturing a healthy relationship with alcohol.

Love Gin, Love Hospitality will see a percentage of online sales of Eden Mill’s famous pink gin donated to charities which provide care and support to people from the drinks industry workforce. 

Eden Mill CEO Tony Kelly said:

“Although we understand the need for further restrictions being brought in across Scotland and throughout the UK to control the rapid spread of Coronavirus, it’s coming down very hard on the hospitality industry and we know from conversations with our industry partners that hospitality is desperate for support. First reduced capacity and 10pm curfews, now a ban on alcohol sales and local hospitality closures; many bars, pubs and restaurants will struggle to survive.

In our opinion, while staying at home is the safest option, bars, pubs and restaurants have staff trained to manage the safe consumption of alcohol since before Covid began, and hospitality has made huge efforts to regulate their spaces to be the safest environments. Banning alcohol consumption and closing hospitality can only serve to encourage the unregulated mixing of households as the public are tempted to meet at home, therefore accelerating the spread of the virus.

Our Love Gin motto is ‘Share the Love’ and it is absolutely essential for us to show our support to an industry on its knees, so we’re donating £2 from every Love Gin 70cl bottle sold on our site to The Drinks Trust.

This summer we raised £10,000 for NHS associated charities, including CHAS and Masks 4 NHS Heroes with our blue Original Gin bottle, so we can only encourage our caring and generous customers to join us again in supporting an industry close to our hearts which needs our help.”

Ross Carter, CEO of The Drinks Trust, commented:

We are incredibly thankful to Eden Mill for their support to The Drinks Trust. The impact of these fundraising initiatives on the lives of our colleagues and friends in the drinks industry is significant and it will enable us to provide more help to those in need of our help in these difficult times”.

Chris Gardner, CEO of TheScottish Licenses Trade Benevolent Society said:

“This is fantastic news for the charity, we are under great pressure trying to help those in the trade in need, especially in these challenging times.  Thanks to all at Eden Mill for thinking of us, it will make a huge difference”.

Eden Mill Love Gin is the St Andrews distiller’s famous premium pink gin. Made from a blend of vibrant botanicals including rose petals and hibiscus, when diluted the gin releases sweet vanilla notes and floral flavour.

For a pink gin, the Love Gin bottle is very green, it uses 18% less glass than the industry standard bottle. Made in the UK and distilled in St Andrews, it has a low carbon footprint.

The 70cl bottles are available to buy here for £30 or can be bought in-store at one of Eden Mill’s festive pop-up shops in Livingston, St Andrews, Glasgow’s Princes Square and Silverburn.

Eden Mill x Bon Box Artisan Chocolate Collaboration
