Did you know that local legend has it that it was actually sheep that created 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.
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.

IT STARTS IN 1655...
In 1655, Robert Haig of Throsk, an early-days whisky distiller was summoned before the kirk session 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, whisky and gin distillery.
The old paper mill still stands today and our name is a nod to times gone by.
Inspired by the captivating landscape of this coastal town, each sip unravels a story of refinement and craftsmanship. The coastal waters shouldering this ancient golfing mecca, lend their essence to the gin, giving it it's unique profile.
Eden Mill captures the very spirit of the region. This premium nature shines through in every aspect, from the meticulous distillation process to the rich, balanced flavours that evoke a sense of place.
Like the historic university and famous golf courses that grace St. Andrews, Eden Mill Gin epitomises excellence, offering a refined experience that is truly unparalleled.
Eden Mill Whisky, crafted in this scenic Lowland region, already boasts an impressive range of small releases dating back to 2018 and our first bottling.
From their Art of St Andrews single malts in 2019 and 2022 to their Cask Mastery expressions, each sip unveils layers of complex flavors.
The distillery's unique position yields a gentle, light character, accentuating notes of citrus, honey, and delicate spices.
With their commitment to innovation, Eden Mill continually captivates whisky connoisseurs with remarkable offerings that honor tradition while pushing boundaries.
Nose: Hints of Juniper 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
