    Eden Mill Love Gin of the Month August 2016

    Posted by Carlee Wilson

    Brewer/Distiller, Jason Daly of Eden Mill St Andrews believes they, 'are brewers and distillers of craft beer, gin and whisky'.

    In his recent Blog he went on to explain - 

    'The word “craft” is becoming an ever more popular buzzword in today’s marketing jargon. It is a word that can be all too easy to dismiss or glaze over. It has no legal definition in our industry. But we are craft. We are craft distillers and brewers because we are experts in our field. We are craft because we are hands on with our products from conception to consumption. We are craft because one minute we are sommeliers tasting everything in our midst, and the next we are mad scientists creating time saving crazy contraptions. We are craft because sometimes it’s about exact measurements and sometimes it’s about intuition and a good feeling.

    Our products are craft because we do not cut corners when it comes to flavour. They are craft because they are made with care, passion and laughter. We are craft because we love what we do... and think you will too'

    At Le Chardon d'Or we love the whole Eden Mill Range
