News & Events

Doing our bit for our customers, colleagues & communities

At Eden Mill we are continuously monitoring the situation concerning COVID-19, ensuring our teams follow the very latest Government advice.  As always, the health and wellbeing of our customers and staff remain our highest priority and for this reason, only a small number of team members remain in our workplaces and we have asked our staff to work from home wherever possible. We have also had to shut down various parts of our retail and sales arm for the time being. 

As we are dedicated to our customers and staff, we wanted to share all that we have been up to #ShareTheLove this week, as well as a few exciting things to look out for in the coming weeks!

Supporting Our Wonderful Communities 

  • We offered a 25% discount and free delivery to all NHS workers – once again we thank you for everything you are doing – you are amazing. Ends 24th April 2020. 
  • Nominate your local hero- every 2 weeks, we are asking our lovely social media followers to nominate a person who is doing something good within their community and who deserves a surprise Eden Mill gin delivery. The response has already been incredible and we have thoroughly enjoyed leaving Eden Mill goodies on the doorsteps of 10 such deserving people so far. We will continue to run our ‘nominate your local hero’ scheme pledging to surprise 10 deserving winners every 2 weeks throughout this crisis for as long as it takes for us as a Nation to beat this!
  • #Sharethelove – Before the tighter lockdown rules came into play we were donating a miniature of gin with every online or direct purchase that we thought would be a perfect gift to share with a neighbour or a loved one during a time that can be quite scary and lonely for some. Once the lockdown rules tightened we had to keep in line with the advice of the government and therefore had to rethink our #sharethelove offering as visiting others became off-limits. With that in mind we are now offering a free bottle of one of our delicious mixology cocktails that you can either enjoy yourself or give to someone else to bring a little joy to their day – as long as you follow the government’s advice and do this safely!

Fun Customer Experience at home

  • We are hosting our first ever Virtual Gin Tasting (which sold out in under 48 hours!). This will run over 2 sessions on Saturday 4th April & Saturday 11th April at 5pm (Gin O’clock). Our gin tastings are always full of fun and laughter, something that is much needed during this time. Each customer taking part will purchase a gift set that contains 12 x 5cl miniatures and two glasses that will be delivered before the event and during the sessions the hosts will take you through a step by step guide on how to taste and serve your gins.  Not only that, but there will also be chances to win prizes too! It is sure to be a fun filled event! We will be releasing a second batch of these tasting sets very soon!

Eden Mill Product Availability

  • Drive Through Drink Shop – Our retail team have created a pop up drive through shop at our temporary site in Guardbridge where customers can order gin from the comfort of their cars and have this bagged and delivered to you,  minimising all contact and still enabling customers to have the service we would offer at any of our retail outlets. Not only that you can ‘Click & Collect’ your order here – shopping has never been easier thanks to the staff here. Very soon, we will also be offering hand sanitiser which can be bought (1 per customer) from this site and online. 
  • We are still taking online orders in-house and the courier service we use has been sending the same staff member for collection. Each package is only handled and loaded into the van by one person who is wearing gloves and all of our staff are practising social distancing at home and work. We are in a unique position that the packaging side of our delivery service is managed in house. Therefore, as we have full control over our orders from the bottling of our products to the packaging, we can be certain we are following every procedure in the strictest means to deliver our products in the safest possible way. 

Hand Sanitiser

  • We have been working hard to produce hand sanitiser in response to the COVID-19 outbreak and will be releasing an initial batch of 2000 in the coming 2 weeks. 
  • 1000 will be donated to a number of frontline charities and the remaining 1000 will be available for members of the public to buy at £5 per bottle (this covers the cost of 2 bottles, with 1 having been donated to charities and services). 
  • So you can pick up a bottle and still be doing something charitable at the same time! 

Supporting Our Staff 

  • We are committed to trying to deploy as many of our valued 63 members of staff in as best ways as we can to be adding value during the coming months. 
  • We have asked all staff that can work from home do so. 

We are following the advice from the government and have put the following procedures in place;

  • Disposable gloves are changed every hour for admin staff and every 30-40 minutes for packaging staff.
  • Hands are washed and sanitised every 30 minutes.
  • We have reduced workplace numbers to 7 members of staff.  Each staff member self-isolates when at home and practices responsible social distancing when needing to go to the shops. This reduces the number of people we are in contact with to an absolute minimum of our household and work. 
  • All work surfaces are thoroughly cleaned every morning and evening, before and after work (this includes handles, laptops, toilets, & phones). Most surfaces are no longer shared.
  • Arrangements are now in place to ensure staff are all standing and sitting apart. We’ve relocated workstations. The packaging team have significantly widened their working area in order to separate by the required 2 metres.

As previously mentioned, we implemented safety measures including strictly only the same 7 staff packaging all online orders to maintain the highest safety standards for our staff and customers.  This team have become closer than ever over these last few weeks. On Thursday 2nd April at the end of their working day, they joined the rest of the UK in applauding our wonderful NHS workers.

From each and everyone of us at Eden Mill we thank you all for your continued support and hope you and your loved ones all stay safe and happy in the coming weeks and months!

Best Wishes

Our 2019 Release aims to deliver a balance of sweet, spice and light notes of toasted fruits and remains sweet and fruity, with hints of cocoa and caramelised biscuits beneath, with a malty-sweet towards the finish.

The 2019 Release Single Malt has incorporated a selection of Oloroso hogheads, pedro ximenez hogsheads, American bourbon barrels with a cask of chocolate malt spirits and crystal malt spirit to craft their latest liquid.

Eden Mill Announced as Headline Gin at The Hydro

Eden Mill, the popular Scottish gin and whisky distiller, has today (Thursday 12th September) announced it is the official gin sponsor at Glasgow’s iconic arena the SSE Hydro.

The three-year deal sees Eden Mill’s award-winning Original Gin become the official house gin, as well as its Love Gin and Mixology bottles being stocked for gin loving customers.

To celebrate the partnership, the SSE Hydro will light up this evening in colours representing the brand’s delicious Mixology flavours: Berry Bramble (red), Citrus Fizz (orange), Basil Smash (green) and the brand-new addition to the line-up: Love Bellini (pink).

Customers heading to gigs and performances will be able to swing by the new branded bar on the concourse, as well as enjoy a tipple at either of the two Eden Mill bars in the Hydro Club which will also serve Eden Mill’s Hop and Oak gins.

Known for its bold and mouth-watering flavours, the colder months will see the SSE Hydro bars serving Eden Mill’s Candy Cane gin which is sure to get customers into the festive spirit. 

Paul Miller, co-founder of Eden Mill, said: “Eden Mill are known for being gin staples at festivals such as the Royal Highland Show and London’s Urban Food Festival, so it was only natural for us to move into Scotland’s home of live entertainment.”

He continued: “We will be bringing some of the best and most popular gins and flavours to the SSE Hydro and are excited to serve our popular Mixology gin bottles which are sure to be a hit with customers.”

Most recently, Eden Mill were the official gin sponsors of Glasgow’s Summer Nights at the historic Kelvingrove Bandstand. The two-week festival saw the 2,500-capacity bandstand taken over by musical legends such as Burt Bacharach, Patti Smith and Hue and Cry, among others. 

Billy McFadyen, Director of Finance and Development said: “Bringing Eden Mill on board as a new partner is a fantastic opportunity for discerning gin and live entertainment fans alike.  Our SSE Hydro customers will be able to enjoy some brilliant new products which will complement our existing offering. The partnership will provide an exceptional brand experience for all and we look forward to working with Eden Mill”  


Nathan Kosky, Vice President of Global Partnerships at AEG said: “Since opening in 2013, The SSE Hydro has established itself as one of the top arenas globally and it’s a privilege to work alongside them to bring world class brands to their venue. Eden Mill is a handmade premium gin that’s produced in Scotland so it’s a perfect fit for their onsite offering.”

To celebrate the brands arrival at the venue Eden Mill created a video showing one of its ambassadors driving from St Andrews to Glasgow via the city’s iconic landmarks, to deliver Eden Mill products. 



Eden Mill Entrepreneur Lands Global Marketing Academy Award

Eden Mill co-founder Paul Miller has won an industry Oscar for the entrepreneurial marketing skills that put the beer, gin and whisky brand on the world map. 

Paul Miller was presented with Global Marketer of the Year at the 22nd Academy of Marketing Science world congress at the University of Edinburgh on Thursday (11th July). 


The award recognises his significant global contribution to the marketing of drinks industry along with his key role in revitalising the Scottish craft gin market and bringing whisky production back to St Andrews after 150 years. 

Previous winners include Olivier Dexemple, the former Marketing and Development Director of Coca-Cola Europe and Rod Drury founder and former CEO of the online accounting software company Xero. 

Miller completed an MBA at University of Edinburgh Business School in 2004, where he continues to support the education of the next generation of marketers. 

After a career with Diageo, Glenmorangie and Coors, he set up Eden Mill in 2012 and has seen turnover grow to £11million a year with the goal of becoming Scotland’s first carbon neutral distillery. 

Paul Miller said: “I am thrilled to be recognised at the AMS World Marketing Congress 2019, as well as the wider marketing and business community. It’s been a tremendous few days learning from experts and peers from around the world.” 

Professor Tina Harrison, co-chair of the 2019 AMS congress, said: “Paul Miller receives this award in recognition of his significant contribution to the development of the Scottish gin, whisky and beer markets at home and globally.” 

This week’s 2019 congress sees a rigorous academic programme which focuses on enlightenment. 

The theme ‘Enlightened Marketing in Challenging Times’, draws on the historical significance of Edinburgh as the birthplace of the ‘Scottish Enlightenment’, the intellectual movement that centred on reason and advanced the ideas of liberty, progress and the scientific method. 

The congress reflects critically on the roles of marketing and marketers in incorporating and advancing the ideals and actions of the Scottish Enlightenment within contemporary marketing theory and practice.

Follow our journey – what we’ve been up to!


May 2018 marked the end of an era at our home in St Andrews. Since Eden Brewery started in 2012 we’d been based in a small section of the old Guardbridge Paper Mill, and over the years had tacked on some extra areas, improved our shop, and upgraded our production kit.

By late 2017 we were bursting at the seams and pressed on with plans to relocate our brewery & distillery to the opposite side of the site into a lovely old building overlooking the Eden Estuary. This meant saying goodbye to what had been our home for five years. The place where our brewers created the range of beer that is often seen in bars throughout St Andrews. The place where our, now award winning, range of gins were devised, refined, and perfected. The place where we filled the first cask of single malt whisky in St Andrews for over 150 years. And a place that we’ve proudly shown 16,000 visitors around on tours, where they’ve met the wonderful team of people who’ve made all of these things happen. It was a sad moment when we closed the doors for the final time. 


But the prospect of being able to expand upon what we’d achieved gave us all a new focus, and we set about making plans for the future. This meant some creative thinking in the short-term while construction was underway, and thus Gatehouse was born! Right on Main Street in Guardbridge, directly across from the famous Mill clock, we secured an area to use for our pop-up shop and tastings that would allow us to continue to offer an experience to visitors while our production space was being renovated a few hundred meters across the road.

We sourced shipping containers and set about converting them into our new shop and tasting rooms, which drew upon our teams secondary talents such as joinery and gardening! Fortunately, we’ve got quite the talented bunch who put in a few long shifts to make sure we were open in time for the summer.

In July, we opened the Gatehouse and resumed where we’d left off – offering beer, gin and whisky tastings, sharing our story with visitors, and giving away some sneaky details about what’s going on behind the scenes with our permanent site move. We launched our Summer Punch Gin, and The Gatehouse was an ideal place to sit and enjoy it in the sunshine.

We even made time for some mini-golf between tastings!

It was fantastic to see visitors enjoying what we were doing, despite not being able to see our brewery/distillery. 1500 people visited us over the summer, and we found that we actually hadn’t gone big enough with our pop-up! An upgrade was needed, and so we decided to renovate our space once more. Lots of ideas were thrown around, but we wanted something unusual, that would do the things that Eden Mill have always been good at – being creative and making an instant impression!


Our new custom-built structures arrived in February and gained instant attention from local passers-by on Main Street. Buses, taxis and pedestrians all gave a bemused look as they passed, which was exactly what we were hoping for! Our team set about building the giant jigsaw puzzles that were to become our two new geodesic domes. The build took around four days, and we were delighted with the results.

This now gives us more capacity to host tastings with guests, and a place to showcase not only our story so far, but the future plans. It creates a space we are excited to show people, and somewhere we know our visitors will enjoy spending an hour or two with us sampling beer, gin or whisky.

From 10th April we’ll be running daily tastings at Gatehouse, focused around either gin or beer & whisky (combined). These will be an hour long, and have been put together from scratch by our team. We’ve thrown the old format and scripts out and started again, thinking about what we want to tell visitors about our journey and how we can share some secret details about our new permanent site as it’s being constructed.

We’ve worked hard over the past nine months to put together something different to really show people what Eden Mill is all about, and we cannot wait to welcome our first guests this summer. There really is no better place to enjoy a sample while you pick the brains of one of our team, so we sincerely hope you’ll come along for a visit this year. Whether you’re a whisky connoisseur, a gin aficionado, or a beer enthusiast, we very much look forward to seeing you!




Scottish Gin Awards 2018 – The Eden Mill Success.

On arrival, Eden Mill had the honour of being 1 of 5 selected Gins to be served as an arrival drink alongside Edinburgh Gin, Makar, Isle of Harris and McQueen. Solid Liquids done a fantastic job at hosting the drinks reception as did KD Media for hosting the entire night. It was evident from the start that all guests were truly honoured, excited and proud to be in attendance and the atmosphere from start to finish proved this.

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.


Scottish Gin Awards Eden Mill

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.
