Original Gin

Original Gin




Eden Mill Original Gin, also known as Eden Gin is the St Andrews take on a classic London Dry. Made from Fife’s seabuckthorn berries, a super food that grows within walking distance of our St Andrews distillery. The unique tart berry flavour is abundant but we balance the gin around it using citrus elements drawn from the other botanicals (like lemon balm and citrus peel). This gin is on a quite different level to most.

With the warmer weather fast approaching, this is ideal for you to share with friends over a summer barbeque. A perfectly sociable gin to enjoy outdoors with friends and family.

Original gin has a very clean and sweet taste. Very smooth and soft on the tongue. Delivers spice flavours of juniper and green pepper followed by bitter drying berries of cranberry and seabuckthorn.

Eden gin leaves a slight prickle on the back of the tongue from the juniper and coriander that moves to leave a sweet orangey/lychee note. This quickly vanishes leaving you wanting more.

Original gin brings out the citrus orange freshness of the gin which becomes mellow and delicate with lychee and pear becoming evermore present.

This is the perfect gin to make a classic gin & tonic so the first question is – how will you enjoy yours this summer? Serve in the Eden Mill Tulip Gin Glass and savour the flavour of this wonderful original gin.

The Fentimans range of mixers is now available to complement Eden Mill original gin.
