Eden Mill’s Original Gin was thereafter recognised by the judges as the best gin in the overall competition, winning the title of Gin of The Year 2018.
Let’s just say that it was certainly a night to remember for not only those attending, but for all of the team at Eden Mill. Our achievements would not of been possible without the contribution, dedication and hard-work from the full team across the board and we are truly lucky to work alongside such passionate, creative and driven individuals.
The Scottish Gin Awards truly highlights the sheer volume of talent that exists within the Spirits industry in Scotland and it was simply amazing to share and applaud fellow attendees, to recognise them for their achievements.
The Eden Mill story started with a mission to revive the lost art of distilling in St. Andrews and we will continue to share our passion and push boundaries because it’s what we love to do.
We send our thanks to all those who believe in us and who continually support our brand. We love what we do and we’re glad that you do too.
