The Distiller’s Choice Collection takes Eden Mill back to our craft roots celebrating the best of historic and modern distilling techniques in small batches; the series has been created for gin connoisseurs around the world to enjoy a rich and luxurious taste of St Andrews.
The Red and White Wine Cask Gins reflect the personal flavour profile preferences of both lead distillers at Eden Mill, and also their passion for ageing gins using oak. They join the first release of The Distiller’s Choice Collection, Oak Old Tom Gin, which won Silver Award at the London Spirit Awards in April.
70CL / 42.5% ABV. Filled on 04/05/2018
Scott enjoys citrus-forward, fruity gins and anything that is fairly zesty and aromatic, with some of his favourite botanicals including bergamot, grapefruit, kaffir lime leaf, lime peel, etc.
Scott chose to age this gin in a White Burgundy wine cask because it adds fresh, tropical peach and apricot flavours that compliment citrus-forward gins.
Head Distiller Scott Ferguson said:
‘The Gin has more character than I ever expected. The liquid still is very gin-like with a lot of juniper coming through but you get so much influence from the casks.
The Red Wine Cask Gin is made to be tasted side by side with the White Wine Cask Gin, we encourage you to explore how different casks and the ageing profiles can affect the flavour profiles in gin. Any flavours that you can taste in one gin that are unique from the other have been imparted by the cask ageing process, so this shows how much flavour influence the cask ageing process can have. Both casks were filled with Eden Mill Original Gin two months apart.
Serve over ice with a premium tonic and a slice of lime.
