Gin lovers are being treated to a very merry Christmas thanks to the launch of a gift set of advent-urous miniatures from Eden Mill distillery.
12 Gins of Christmas features the results of a year’s experimentation from the entire Eden Mill team, with each miniature expression handpicked from a number of recipes trialled and created onsite at the St Andrews distillery.
The set – priced at £69 – sees established Eden Mill favourites Original Gin, Love Gin, Hop Gin and Golf Gin joined by some festive flavours – including Mulled Gin, Orange and Clove Gin and After Dinner Gin.
Other flavours include the Caribbean-inspired Slackwater Gin, cardamom-infused Rai Gin, the Mediterranean Botano Gin and the so-called ‘juniper monster’, the Juniper Trio Gin.
To meet demand, the team has doubled production this year with 20,000 12 Gins of Christmas sets ready to be dispatched to gift-hunters from the newly relaunched edenmill.com, John Lewis stores and online as well as the Eden Mill distillery shop in St Andrews.
Paul Miller, co-founder of Eden Mill, said: “12 Gins of Christmas truly has been a labour of love from our entire team, who’ve been working tirelessly over the past year to bring the ultimate Christmas-inspired gins to fruition.
“Our distillers go above and beyond to create the best flavours for our gins, be it roasting chestnuts round a fire to taking traditional Christmas spirits and adding a touch of ginspiration. Each expression is a culmination of our creative, experimental – and delicious – journey.
“There is a gin for all occasions included in the pack. Christmas is a time for a sharing and we understand that different people have different tastes so we’ve tried to create something for everyone.
“Part of the magic of creating a new expression is the journey – and we’d like to welcome anyone interested in discovering the process to the distillery for a tour this festive season.”
The set adds to the range of festive releases from the distillery, which also includes a number of gin gifting packs, gin liqueurs, whisky and beer produced at Scotland’s only single site brewery and distillery.
Next day delivery is available now from edenmill.com and packs will also be available at exclusive Eden Mill pop up shops located at Edinburgh’s Christmas, Princes Square Shopping Centre in Glasgow, Dundee City Square and Aberdeen Union Square from late November.
