We three gins

GIN enthusiasts have a trio of new expressions to add to their Christmas wish lists, according to St Andrews-based craft distillery Eden Mill, which has just launched a range of new gin liqueurs.

The three flavours are Lemon and Raisin (20% ABV), Strawberry and Cracked Black Pepper (25% ABV) and Pear and Cassia (25% ABV). 

Paul Miller, co-founder of Eden Mill, said: “After five years, we’ve conquered the art of beer, gin and whisky, making now the perfect time for our first foray into the world of gin liqueurs.

“We’re in the incredibly fortunate and unique position at Eden Mill that our entire operation is intertwined, with creative inspiration and ideas just as likely to come from our marketing department as our distillers – the process really has involved the wider team from the beginning.

“This spirit of experimentation has resulted in three completely unique flavours brought to life here in St Andrews by our expert distillers, each built from a base of heavy juniper, earthy beetroot and sweet coconut yet delivering entirely different experiences to the palate.

“The launch adds to an exciting year for Eden Mill, as we continue to expand both our product range and our experiential offerings.”

For the perfect serve, the distillery recommends serving the liqueurs over ice in a high ball glass topped with soda, a dash of bitters and a fresh garnish. Alternatively, adding to a glass of fizz brings a fruity kick.

Each liqueur is priced at £15 per bottle and a gift pack with all three expressions, plus a glass is priced at £50, available through the online shop.
