Eden Mill Oak Gin (750ml)
Edein Mill is Scotland's first single site whisky distillery and brewery, located in St. Andrews along the country's eastern coast just north of Edinburgh. Ressurrecting a former distillery alond the banks of the River Eden, Eden Mill is using its traditional single malt pot stills to also create a series of unique gins using locally-grown fruits and botanicals from the Eden Estuary, along with other sourced ingredients. Taking a custom grain base distilled at nearby Cameronbridge distillery, the gins are run through the Forcyths copper with various recipes for a rounder, and mellower mouthfeel than your standard London Dry. The Oak gin is briefly aged in former Heaven Hill Bourbon casks to impart just a touch of oak spice into the gin, functioning in this case as more of an extra botanical rather than to impart the richness of barrel maturation. The result is a delicate and incredibly subtle gin with delicacy and just the right amount of spice.
