PAUL Miller, the co-founder of Eden Mill, has been bestowed with a major marketing award in recognition of his entrepreneurial skills and contribution to the development of Scottish gin, whisky and beer at home and abroad.

Miller was presented with the Global Marketer of the Year award yesterday (July 11) at the 22nd Academy of Marketing Science (AMS) World Marketing Congress at the University of Edinburgh.

In addition to recognising the Eden Mill co-founder’s “significant global contribution” to the marketing of the drinks industry, the award win credits Miller for his role in “revitalising the Scottish craft gin market” and bringing whisky production back to St Andrews after 150 years.

In winning the award, Miller, whose trade career includes stints with Diageo, Glenmorangie and Coors before he co-founded Eden Mill in 2012, joins the likes of Olivier Dexemple, the former marketing and development director of Coca-Cola Europe.

Commenting on the award win, Paul Miller said: “I am thrilled to be recognised at the AMS World Marketing Congress 2019, as well as the wider marketing and business community. It’s been a tremendous few days learning from experts and peers around the world.”

Professor Tina Harrison, co-chair of the 2019 AMS congress, said: “Paul Miller receives this award in recognition of his significant contribution to the development of the Scottish gin, whisky and beer markets at home and globally.”
