Scottish distillery Eden Mill has released a golf-inspired gin in homage to its hometown of St Andrews.

Eden Mill’s Golf Gin pays homage to St Andrews and uses botanicals inspired by the town’s Old Course

Eden Mill Golf Gin has been produced using botanicals inspired by St Andrews Old Course, including seaweed, pine needles, gorse flower and heather. The gin’s bottle is dressed in a green jacket, reminiscent of the Masters champions.

Scottish European Tour golfer Stephen Gallacher tasted the new gin during a visit to Eden Mill’s gin blending experience.

“The new Golf Gin is a spirit that essentially bottles the experience of golfing in St Andrews,” said Paul Miller, co-founder of Eden Mill. “With earthy notes of the forest and an underlying tang of the sea, it’s rugged, real and – once tasted – will keep customers coming back for more.

“No-one knows Scottish golf courses better than Stephen Gallacher, so we were thrilled to welcome him to Blendworks to sample the gin that really reflects the spirit of St Andrews.”

Eden Mill recently unveiled its inaugural range of single malt Scotch whiskies – the first to be distilled in St Andrews in almost 160 years.

Earlier this year, the company announced its intention to build a new distillery and brewery next to its current St Andrews site, which will be converted into university office accommodation.
