Eden Mill offers tasting sessions at St Andrews’ Old Course Hotel

A PRIVATE tasting room in St Andrews’ world-famous Old Course Hotel is now hosting special sessions highlighting the work of local independent distiller Eden Mill.

Located just seven minutes from the site of their soon-to-be completed distillery, ‘Eden Mill at the Old Course Hotel’ is now open to the public offering two distinct experiences – a Coastal Gin Flight and the Eden Mill Single Malt Flight.

These gin and whisky experiences are in a room opposite the hotel’s Road Hole Bar that looks across the 17th green on the Old Course. Each session includes a welcome drink, an educational showcase of each spirit and a chance to sample the range, wity brand ambassadors there to tell the Eden Mill story.

The gin experience celebrates local botanicals and Eden Mill perfect serves, exploring how each of its three core gins takes inspiration from the Fife coastline.

For whisky lovers, the Single Malt Flight introduces Eden Mill’s premium whiskies, journeying through four drams from bourbon maturation and sherry finishes to an elusive ‘mystery dram’.

Commenting on the partnership, head of marketing at Eden Mill, Hannah Ingram, said: “St Andrews is our home – and we’re immensely proud of where we’re from – so it made absolute sense to collaborate with the iconic Old Course Hotel, a world-renowned destination for luxury experiences.

“We want to provide an unforgettable showcase for locals and visitors alike, educating gin lovers on locally-sourced botanicals and how to serve their favourite gin, as well as presenting our wonderful range of single malts to whisky fans. The experience will tell the Eden Mill story so far, and announce our very exciting plans for the future!”
