OWN A SLICE OF HISTORY

 

The 1655 Club is a tribute to Robert Haig of Throsk, an early-days whisky distiller who was summoned before the kirk session in 1655 for the crime of distilling on the Sabbath. That was just the beginning of the long brewing and distilling tradition linked to this corner of Scotland.

By the mid-1800s, the same site on the Estuary was home to the Seggie Whisky Distillery which ceased production not long after and became a paper mill instead, bringing bustling trade to the area.

Over 150 years on, Eden Mill revived history on the edge of the Eden Estuary and opened Scotland's first single-site brewery and whisky and gin distillery. The old paper mill still stands today, right next to the site of the new distillery, and our name is a nod to times gone by.

 

OUR HOME & HEART

 

St Andrews is the home of Eden Mill and one of our primary ambitions is to build on the fantastic visitor offering within this historic town.

Our new home will be a stone's throw from the site of the original distillery. Although things will be on a very different scale compared to the past, we will retain the same passion for craft and focus on quality.  Our water will come from local water sources and we'll continue to benefit from regionally-grown barley.

Inside the whisky and gin distillery, we'll have a three tonne mash kit, six 15,000 litre washbacks, a 15,000 litre wash still and an 11,500 litre spirit still.

CASK MASTERY

 

Our Head Distiller, Scott Ferguson, and his team continually experiment with a huge range of different casks of the highest quality in order to create innovate, exciting and delicious whiskies. We call this Cask Mastery.

The cask you purchase as your whisky barrel investment will remain under Scott's watchful eye throughout its maturation period. The whisky contents will be reviewed every year in order to evaluate the progress of each cask and based on this, you'll receive guidance and advice on how long it should be left to mature. Making sure you get the most out of this unique cask investment.
