Eden Mill Sea Buckthorn Original Gin
Eden Mill // Lowlands, Scotland
The Haig family first founded the Seggie Distillery in 1810 and began producing whisky. Fifty years later, the site was transformed into a paper mill, which would operate until shutting down in 2008. In 2012, businessman Paul Miller reopened the site as the Eden Mill Brewery. Within two years, he started producing spirits, creating Scotland's first combined brewery and distillery. Eden Mill Sea Buckthorn Original Gin, one of the distillery's signature spirits, is made with several botanicals, including juniper berries, lemon balm, citrus peel, angelica, and locally-picked sea buckthorn berries, all vapor-infused with the base spirit. The final product is bottled at 42% ABV.
Flavored GinA gin flavored, either naturally or artificially with the (pre)dominant flavor(s) listed on the label.
"The Original Gin’s bouquet shows a beautiful combination of bright citrus, earthy coriander, and a healthy dose of refreshing juniper matched with the spirit’s calling card: the sea buckthorn berry. These tart little fruits give an invigorating character to the gin, but compliment the traditional botanicals rather than hijacking the flavor profile making this a great tool in all sorts of traditional applications — particularly well-suited for a gin and tonic. The distillate has a rich mouthfeel and no real impression of alcoholic burn or spice."
