The Eden Mill Story

It’s Eden Mill’s mission to revive the lost art of distilling and brewing gin, beer and whisky in St Andrews, Scotland. Based on the historic original site of the Seggie Distillery, run by the Haig family until 1860, Eden Mill are the first to make spirits in the region for 150 years.

From their location on the banks of the River Eden, Eden Mill have the paradise of the Eden Estuary on their doorstep. The distillers source botanicals from the local fields, forests and coasts to represent the best of Scotland. These are then used in the traditional copper pot-still process which creates their fabulous range of gins. Eden Mill’s take on a classic London Dry Gin with a twist, ‘The Original Gin’, was recently awarded London Dry Gin of the Year and Gin of the Year at the 2018 Scottish Gin Awards.

But gin isn’t all this innovative brand are known for. Having already carved a formidable reputation with their award-winning super-premium gins and craft beers, Eden Mill began working tirelessly to bring whisky distilling back to the region in a new and exciting way. In 2018, Eden Mill released the first Single Malt whisky to be distilled in St Andrews in over 150 years. The First Bottling was sold at auction and broke the world record for a first release, at £7,100.


“Share our passion isn’t a marketing slogan, it represents our team spirit and unwavering pride in what we do. We hope our dedication to innovation inspires you as much as it does us – join us on our quest to create something really special.” – The Eden Mill team
