Eden Mill Original Sea Buckthorn Gin
A gin from Eden Mill made with sea buckthorn, sometimes known as simply 'seaberries' for a satisfying tang. Great stuff from the Scottish distillery (and brewery).
Original Gin is the St Andrews take on a classic London Dry. 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 balanced using citrus elements drawn from the other botanicals (like lemon balm and citrus peel).
Packaged in an attractive ceramic pottery bottle, the nose shows strong citrus notes of lemon balm, bitter orange, and hints of light grapefruit, with delicate spicy coriander and clove through the midpoint, and sweet white fruits (pear, lychee, and melon) to finish. The palate is well rounded and smooth, with no burn. Notes of juniper and green peppercorns, followed by dried sour notes of seabuckthorn and cranberry blend with a sweet lychee, rambutan, and pear under more sweetness in an orange finish. Garnish with any citrus fruits or peel.
