EDEN MILL’S SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

OUR MISSION

We want to lead the way for sustainability within the drinks industry in Scotland, and are doing this by innovating in every area of our business. By constantly adapting, we are working towards a greener business model and more sustainable future for distilleries in Scotland.

With Scotland’s aim of reducing emissions by 75% by 2030, we believe it is important that all industries contribute to achieving this figure. Here at Eden Mill, we try our best to responsibly source our ingredients from as many local venues as we can.

A report on mindful drinking uncovered that one third of shoppers try to buy products that are environmentally friendly, this confirms that consumers are definitely concerned with how their product choices are affecting the environment.

SUSTAINABILITY AT THE CORE

We always want to ensure that we are doing what we can to have as little impact on the environment as possible. It is important that we always use biodegradable cups when we are offering samples and tastings. Also, our aluminium bottles for our mixology range are easily recyclable, sustainable and environmentally friendly.

A main step we have taken to ensure that Eden Mill and our customers have as little impact on the environment as possible is by moving away from ceramic bottles to a new recyclable glass bottle. 

PASSION AND INNOVATION

These bespoke bottles have been exclusively designed for Eden Mill and produced in the UK, resulting in a low carbon footprint. They are easy to recycle and use 18% less glass than an industry-standard glass bottle – so there is actually less glass to begin with!  

The new 70cl bottles which use 18% less glass than other industry standard bottles, are lighter and more easily recycled than Eden Mill’s original ceramic bottles, which have been synonymous with their brand identity and award-winning craft gin.

We launched nine new premium gins in a significant bottle redesign resulting in a major step forwards in our journey to carbon neutrality. The new premium range showcases Eden Mill’s passion for innovation and experimental product development, combining locally sourced botanicals with inspiration and influences from across the world in a series of quality expressions to appeal to every palette.

Each Eden Mill gin has its own story; depicted beautifully with words and a unique woodcut style print commissioned by Eden Mil’s design agency, Tangent, upon the label of the new bottles. The new more sustainable glass design has been crafted and produced by wholesale bottle merchants Croxsons.

FUTURE PLANS 

Passionate about craft and our future, by 2023 Eden Mill will open Scotland’s first carbon-neutral single malt whisky distillery in St Andrews.

The state-of-the-art distillery will be located within the University of St. Andrews’ Eden Campus; power and heat for the stills will be supplied by the University’s biomass plant and solar panels on the distillery’s roof. This aligns with our mission to decrease our carbon footprint as much as possible.

HIP FLASK 16 & 17

Hip Flask 16

Pale Malt Spirit aged in an ex-Islay Whisky refill cask. Filled on 04/02/16.

This Hip Flask release has been created by ageing our Pale Malt Spirit in an ex-Islay Whisky refill cask. This ex-peated cask has been used to showcase the amount of peat flavour the cask itself can contribute to the spirit. This whisky has a dry, almost wood-smoke aroma, along with hints of cereal and hay. The level of peat is mild/moderate, with the emphasis on the woodsmoke bonfire-ember character of the liquid.

Hip Flask 17

Peated Malt Spirit aged in a refill Bourbon cask. Filled on 20/07/16.

This Hip Flask release has been matured in a refill Bourbon Cask. This whisky has a pronounced, phenolic peaty aroma. With a rich level of peat, this liquid has a robust earthiness along with a dense, peat-smoke flavour. This is then lightened with spicy oak and sweet vanilla character from the bourbon cask.

We invite you to explore these progressive Single Cask expressions and find your favourite today.

CASK STRENGTH


We kept aside a very limited number of our 2021 Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky for Burns Night celebrations, with the rest of the 200 bottles sold out.

This Eden Mill Single Malt is crafted using a perfect marriage of first-fill bourbon casks and ex-oloroso sherry casks, incorporating spirit distilled using pale malted barley, drawn at cask strength. The result is a beautifully rich dram that carries notes of caramelised pears and fruit crumble with undertones of hazelnut praline and a long-lasting peppery finish.

This is the last chance to purchase this release and add to your collection!

 60.7% ABV

2021 SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
 

Our St Andrews day release, 2021 Release Single Malt Whisky is still available, with a small quantity remaining. 

This small batch of Eden Mill Single Malt is crafted using a perfect marriage of first-fill bourbon casks and ex-oloroso sherry casks, incorporating spirit distilled using pale malted barley. The result is a beautifully rich dram that carries notes of caramelised pears and fruit crumble with undertones of hazelnut praline and a long-lasting peppery finish.

PREMIUM GINS

Inspired by local legends and made using botanicals from the Scottish coast, our classic Original Gin and Neptune Gin celebrate Scottish heritage.

NEPTUNE GIN

This is a coastal-inspired gin with Kombu seaweed. With a focus on a light salinity with a fresh, herbal profile such as samphire. Distilled with Scottish seaweed in order to give a hint of brininess along with a gentle smoky/seashore character.

Best served with a premium or Mediterranean tonic, garnished with a lemon peel. Neptune Gin can be used to make a classic Martini with a St Andrews twist.

ORIGINAL GIN

Original Gin is our take on a classic London dry – with a twist. Our St Andrews distillery is on a particularly tempestuous Scottish coastline, so we were inspired to create our first gin using sea buckthorn berries, an exceptionally hardy superfood that thrives in harsh, salty, coastal conditions. The unique tart berry flavour is abundant but we balance the gin around it using citrus elements drawn from the other botanicals, such as lemon balm and citrus peel.

Perfectly served with a premium tonic and grapefruit slice or try making a Paloma cocktail.

Don’t forget to photograph your Burns Night set ups and tag @edenmill on social media for your chance to be featured!

Retailing at £85, the small batch 2021 release is crafted by a perfect marriage of first-fill bourbon casks and ex-oloroso sherry casks, incorporating spirit distilled using pale malted barley.

Scott Ferguson, Eden Mill’s head distiller said: ‘The result is a beautifully rich dram, which carries notes of caramelised pears and fruit crumble with undertones of hazelnut praline and a long-lasting peppery finish.

‘The liquid our team have crafted continues to push the boundaries of our previous whisky expressions, which we are absolutely honoured to have recognised in the Scottish Whisky Awards.

‘An evolution of Eden Mill’s cask and spirit, raising a dram of our 2021 release takes our whisky fans on the next step of our journey as the spirit is aging and changing.

‘We greatly anticipate that next step into our new climate positive distillery in St. Andrews next year and hope whisky fans will join us as part of our cask club, the 1655, to be a part of that historic moment.’

Members of Eden Mill’s 1655 club will each own a unique cask of Eden Mill single malt to mature on the banks of the Eden and receive exclusive pre-sales of new expressions and special releases, including a limited 200 bottle release of Eden Mill 2021 Single Malt Scotch Cask Strength (£110, 70cl, 60.7% ABV) later this year.
