Original Gin (Limited Edition) (70cl, RRP £26.50)
Eden Mill’s award-winning Gin, also known as Eden Gin, is the St Andrews take on a classic London Dry. Voted number one at the 2018 Scottish Gin Awards where 116 gins were blind tasted. Made from Fife’s sea buckthorn 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.
Paul Miller, Eden Mill co-founder, said: ‘We are excited to re-establish a presence in the travel retail market, in response to growing demand for Eden Mill on a global level.
‘Eden Mill’s return to the duty-free market demonstrates that our range has the versatility to appeal to a broad range of gin purchasers, from traditional premier G and T drinkers, to novice gin consumers, to gift buyers.’
Kathryn Kindness, commercial category manager at World Duty Free, said: ‘Gin has proved to be an ever-popular duty-free item that travellers often seek as the perfect present or keep sake to bring back from their travels. With so many options, flavours and enticing bottle designs, it’s no wonder that this sector continues to expand. We are delighted to welcome Eden Mill into this area of the market, where I’m sure they will thrive.’
