Eden Mill Tasting Notes

Posted: February 28, 2017 in Gin, Scottish Gin, White Spirits

Eden Mill Original Gin 42%

Scottish gin vapour infused with juniper, angelica, citrus peel, sea-buckthorn berries, coriander seed and lemon balm.

Tasted: Jan 2017

Intensely sweet and bitter juniper with fresh citric notes. Very refreshing with hints of salty berries, very soft coriander spice and a nutmeg-like note.

The palate is a little fuller and shows more spirit character, although it is still pleasantly fresh and juniper led. Hints of sweet citrus and bitter spice on the middle with a touch of salty berry. Long salty finish with warming spice and citrus.

Eden Mill Love Gin 42%

Scottish gin vapour infused with juniper, coriander seed, angelica, rose petal, elderberry, rhubarb root, marshmallow root, goji berry, raspberry leaf and finally infused with hibiscus flowers post distillation.

Tasted: Jan 2017

Slightly pink hued, hence the name I suppose. A floral nose, which is pleasantly bitter-sweet with the juniper taking a back seat to the hibiscus and almost raspberry-like notes. Subtly perfumed but well balanced.

The palate displays a depth of sweet berries, subtly perfumed petal and again a slight raspberry-like character. Like the nose the juniper is quite subtle and the finish is long and gently spiced.

Eden Mill Golf Gin 42%

Botanicals: Hickory, lemongrass, juniper, angelica, heather flower, rhubarb root, red clover, blueberries, star anise

Tasted: Jan 2017

The nose is earthy and a little muted with hints of stewed cold tea, dried grass and pretty imperceptible juniper. There’s also a slight metallic edge.

The palate is dusty and musty with that cold tea note. Flat and lightly oiled but the finish is quite spicy with a drying bitterness. Not hugely impressed by this.
