EDEN MILL Rosa Rosa Gin
Produced in St Andrews by the dynamic craft distillers at Eden Mill Rosa Rosa Gin takes its name from two of its main botanicals: petals of damask rose (rosa damascene) and rosehips from the dog rose (rosa canina).
Like a picnic in a rose garden this handcrafted gin pops with notes of Turkish delight cherry blossom and candied summer fruits. In the warmer months pair this delicately floral gin with premium tonic water and a handful of fresh raspberries and then take it outside into the garden. When things are a little bit colder we find it makes a wonderful accompaniment to Maghrebi cuisine – think tagines harissa and couscous bejewelled with pomegranate arils. And if you’re feeling in a celebratory mood then use Rosa Rosa Gin to make a fabulous French 75 cocktail (a twist using pink Prosecco is particularly good).
St Andrews is renowned for being the ‘home of golf’ not to mention its university its sandy beaches and its particularly large cathedral ruin. But few people realise that brewing and distilling were once integral to this Scottish town probably because those arts had been lost for 150 years. Eden Mill was born from a desire to revive these traditions. Sourcing ingredients and botanicals from the local fields forests and coastline they’ve created an enviable reputation for their gins and liqueurs. But also keep an eye out for their whisky. In 2018 they released the first Single Malt Scotch whisky to be made in St Andrews in over a century and half. That first bottling sold at auction and broke the world record for a first release clocking in at a punchy £7 100.
Sustainability is at the heart of Eden Mill’s ethos. They’re working towards becoming carbon neutral shortly their new distillery will draw power and heat from solar panels on the roof and the University of St Andrews’ biomass plant and lightweight bottles made in the UK have reduced waste and lowered their footprint further. As progressive as it is delicious.
