On arrival, guests enjoyed a simple yet delightful cocktail; Eden Mills Strawberry and Black Pepper Liqueur topped with Prosecco and garnished with a slice of fresh strawberry. A delightful welcome cocktail to freshen their palate for a the Gin tasting due to follow.
Host Rosie then got on with the important 'Gin Tasting' starting off with Eden Mill's Golf gin and its feature cocktail of 'Salt & Wind' this is a simple 24-hour infusion of gin with lemongrass and lime zest. A fantastic and delicious gin infusion that could be easily recreated and served at your next dinner party!
Next up was the martini style cocktail 'Sea of Love' featuring Eden's classic Love Gin. Infused with hibiscus it exudes fantastic floral flavour and warm berry notes.
Eden Mill's Original Gin was the next feature. This Gin recently won Gold at the Scottish Gin Awards for best example of London Dry Gin. We've loved Original Eden from the moment we first tried it. The main botanical is Seabuckthorn - which is known for it's healing qualities. We say 'cheers' to that and served up this next cocktail...Elderflower Cloud.
The last feature was the 'Gin Buck' featuring Eden Mill's Oak. Bourbon beer barrels house this gin during maturation and cause a warming nose with fresh pine notes. Delectable on its own, this simple cocktail of Oak gin, fresh lemon juice and ginger ale was a final hit!
Following the Gin tasting, guests retired upstairs and enjoyed a two-course lunch designed by Brian.
