Eden Mill unveils ’12 Gins of Christmas’By Annie Hayes
Scotland’s Eden Mill Distillery has released a gift set containing 12 gins in celebration of the 12 days of Christmas.
The new recipes include Chilli and Ginger, Blueberry and Vanilla, Eldeberry and Lemongrass, Rosemary, Mulled Gin and Cinnamon flavoured gins.
The distilling team initially reached out for recipe ideas for a single seasonal Christmas gin through a social media campaign via Facebook and Twitter and found themselves overwhelmed with responses.
Eden Mill co-founder, Paul Miller, explained: “The response was incredible, with a wide array of suggestions, so we thought of offering a different gin experience for each day of the festive season.
“Our production team are passionate about crafting great spirits and because we make all of our gins by hand on our own site, using as many local botanicals as we can, they were really up for the challenge.
“Interest levels have been huge with mixologists as far afield as Hong Kong, Shanghai and Dubai offering mood-enhancing cocktail suggestions for each gin.”
Scottish mixologist Scott Gemmell of the Glasgow-based LA Group is producing a range of serve suggestions and cocktails to provide a “unique sensory experience” with each gin on each day of the holiday.
The twelve gins are available in 5cl and 10cl packs, and will be available online from the coming weekend.
Eden Mill’s existing range includes Eden Mill Original Gin, Hop Gin, Love Gin and barrel-aged Oak Gin.
