Scotch whisky distiller Eden Mill has added to its range of “ultra-premium” gins.
The Red and White Wine Cask-Aged expressions, both released today, are limited to 600 bottles and are available immediately from the company’s website. The White Wine Cask iteration was created by ageing Eden Mill Original Gin in ex-Burgundy casks for 15 months while the Red Wine Cask gin rested in an Italian Red Amarone cask for 500 days.
“We first brought our fascination for oak from producing whisky together with gin when we created Eden Mill’s Oak Gin in 2015,” the company’s head distiller, Scott Ferguson, said. “By experimenting with cask-ageing and also adding oak chips, we found a beautiful way of giving gin a boost of flavour at speed.”
The two expressions are the newest offerings under the company’s Distiller’s Choice range, which also includes Old Oak Tom Gin, launched in February.
Later this year, the Scottish spirits company will move to a new ‘eco-distillery’, powered by St Andrews University’s biomass power plant.
