Golf Gin – A Taste Of St. Andrews

Join us for the next chapter of our iconic Golf Gin.

Originally created in 2018 using key botanicals such as seaweed, heather, lavender and pine, we are so proud to be releasing our customer-favourite Golf Gin for the first time in a new sustainable bespoke glass bottle as part of our Heritage Gin Range.

This botanically rich spirit incorporates ingredients that can be spotted around local grassland and coastal golf courses in Scotland. Inspired by the ocean view of St. Andrews Links, we created a seaweed base, with fresh pine to transport us to windswept fairways, and quintessentially Scottish heather adding a floral undertone!

DISCOVER THE STORY OF GOLF GIN

This botanically rich spirit incorporates ingredients that can be spotted around local grassland and coastal golf courses in Scotland. Inspired by the ocean view of St. Andrews Links – which can be seen, if you look closely, in the illustration – we created this gin using a seaweed base, with fresh pine and quintessentially Scottish heather.

Ella’s stunning illustration for this bottle invites you to find references to St. Andrews lore from the town’s celebrated Golf history. Did you know that local legend has it that it was actually sheep that led to the bunkers on golf courses? They dug out holes on St. Andrews Links to protect themselves from the harsh wind sweeping in from the sea – inadvertently leading to a staple of any golf course around the world.

We invite you to have a close look at the illustration on this bottle and see what local legends you can unearth. Our Golf Gin illustration also includes a room key with the number 269 engraved… Did you know World-renowned golfer Tiger Woods will only stay in room 269 at The Old Course Hotel when he stays in St Andrews? The reason being that 269 was the number of strokes it took him to win his first Open Championship in St Andrews back in 2000.

With so many little details to this illustration, we invite you to discover what other legends can be found in our Golf Gin story.

DISCOVER THE TASTE OF GOLF GIN

Nose

Hints of Juniper Pine in a forest of lavender and spruce trees. There is a slight tang of the sea that underlies it.

Taste

The juniper dominates as it should but there is a sweetness from the gorse to it that makes sure it isn’t overpowering. The heather and lavender add a floral note while the spruce and coriander provide a distinct peppery finish.

Finish

A distinct peppery finish

Perfect serve

Eden Mill recommend serving Golf Gin with a premium tonic and a blackberry and mint garnish!
