The Smoothness Flows From The Custom-Built Copper Still With Its Unique Double Sphere Head, Together With The Careful Selection Of Our Botanicals And Our Distiller’s Craft. Only The Pure Hear Of Each Run Makes The Cut. Edward Kain, The Dapper Gentleman Seafarer And Great Grandfather Of Our Head Distiller, Enjoyed His Gin And Tonic At 6 O’clock, A Tradition Still Shared By British Gin-Lovers All Over The World Today. Clean, Green Elderflower Leaps Forward, Supported By A Delightfully Sweet And Juicy Orange Juniperis Present Throughout, But Never In A Dominating Capacity, Rather It Supports The Entire Flavour Journey, Leaving The Mouth Oscillating Wildly Between Pine And Citrus Long After The Sip Is Supped.
6 O’clock Sloe Gin Is Made In Small Catches Using Handpicked, Wild, Hedgerow Sloes. The Intense Fruit Flavour Of This Traditional Classic Is Achieved By Using A High Sloe To Gin Ratio, Plenty Of Sugar, Then Patiently And Slowly Maturing For At Least 6 Months. Smooth, Intense And With A Robust Flavour Enjoy Neat, Or In A Cocktail.
Eden Mill’s award-winning Original Gin, also known as Eden Gin, is the St Andrews take on a classic London Dry. This gin was voted Scotland’s Number One Gin at the 2018 Scottish Gin Awards, where 116 gins were blind tasted!
Made from Fife’s seabuckthorn berries, a super food that grows within walking distance of the St Andrews distillery. The unique tart berry flavour is abundant but they balance the gin around it using citrus elements drawn from the other botanicals (like lemon balm and citrus peel). This gin is on a quite different level to most.
Nose:Strong citrus nose of lemon balm, bitter orange and hints of light grapefruit.
Palate: Delicate spice of coriander and clove through the midpoint. A sweetness of lychee, rambutan and pear under more sweetness in an orange finish.
Finish: Well rounded and smooth with no burn. A classic, clean and refreshing gin.
