We are delighted to welcome back host Joey of Eden Mill, St Andrews to host February's Gin experience and lunch event. This prestigious distillery has truly gone from strength to strength over the past few years, growing their brand of Gin’s by show casing quality with beautiful packaging and equally outstanding product.
It may or may not have something to do with Valentine’s Day during the week, but Eden Mill’s Love Gin has been going down a treat this month. Joey from Eden Mill has chosen this gin to highlight this month and not just to tie it in with Valentine’s Day, but also because it’s fundamentally a stunning gin...here’s why…
Hibiscus and rose petal are the two infused botanicals that are used in this pale pink gin. This creates a floral nose with warm berry notes and a smidge of green fruit at the end.
Fabulous neat, you will taste the prominence of juniper upfront and a lovely spiced rhubarb kick melting into a mellow sweet confected rhubarb and vanilla. Green fruits and citrus shine through at the end to balance your taste-buds to an all-over palate experience. We love this gin with a basic tonic mixer or a mild dry prosecco. Diluted with a mixer, sweet vanilla and floral notes really steal the show. With a tonic mix always garnish with red berry or pink grapefruit. When out of season frozen redberries are a great alternative.
Bar tenders are unanimous in their opinion that Eden LOVE features amazingly in cocktails too. At this Saturday’s Gin Experience, host Joey is featuring this gorgeous gin in a Bramble style cocktail. The blackberry liquor Chambord adding to the already present red berry flavours. The fresh lemon bringing an extra prominence to the green fruit quality. We think this recipe show cases LOVE gin fantastically!
