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.

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!

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.

HOW IMPORTANT IS SUSTAINABILITY TO US? 

Sustainability is extremely important at Eden Mill. With Scotland’s aim of reducing emissions by 75% by 2030, we believe it is important that all industries contribute to achieving this figure.

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.

Here at Eden Mill, we try our best to responsibly source our ingredients from as many local venues as we can.

One example of this is our no alcohol range, Eden Nil, where all of the ingredients have been sourced locally from the secret herb garden in Edinburgh.

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 launching a new glass bottle. 

We have moved towards this to ensure we are working towards a greener future. This new glass bottle will make it easier for venues to recycle our gin bottles when they are empty.


HOW IS THE NEW BOTTLE GREENER?

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!  

FUTURE PLANS 

Passionate about craft and our future, by Spring 2022 Eden Mill will open Scotland’s first carbon-neutral single malt whisky distillery in St Andrews, in time for the 150th anniversary of The Open Championships.

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 want to decrease our carbon footprint as much as possible.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

As our packaging is easily recycled, all we ask is that our customers please recycle bottles and boxes in the correct manner.

Or why not up-cycle old bottles in to something new! Tag us in your creations @edenmill for a chance to be featured.

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.
