The event, which will take place in St Andrews – a popular golfing destination recognised as the “home” of golf – will include a series of activities involving at least seven top Scottish craft gin makers.

Local businesses in St Andrews are backing the initiative, and will feature Scottish gin cocktail menus in celebration.

Paul Miller, the master distiller of Eden Mill Distillery, said: “Scottish distilleries are leading the way throughout the world in the development of great tasting, innovative and exciting craft gins. It is a privilege for us to able to showcase these in such a great setting.”

Eden Mill Distillery has just released its latest expression, Golf Gin, which is “influenced by the ancient methods used by makers of golf clubs”.

Lead distiller Scott Ferguson said: “We were looking to achieve a refreshing yet interesting summer gin with layers of flavour, ideal for the season, a gin for the town to be proud of as it welcomes thousands of visitors for the Open Golf Championship in July.

“Alongside the classic gin botanicals of juniper, coriander seed, angelica and liquorice root we included a mix of lemongrass, lime peel, red mustard, camomile and rhubarb root. For that bit of extra spice we included some hickory wood in with the botanicals.

“Our friends at the St. Andrews Golf Club company, who make fantastic traditional hickory golf clubs, inspired us with that idea and we are so delighted with the outcome we decided to name it Golf Gin.”
