Scottish gin maker Eden Mill is making the switch from ceramic to glass bottles, marking a major step in its journey to become more sustainable.
For the first time since it was launched in 2014, Eden Mill’s London dry-style Original Gin will be presented in a crystal cut glass bottle rather than ceramic.
The new 70cl bottles – already used across the rest of the Eden Mill range – use 18 per cent less glass than the industry standard and are lighter and more easily recycled than Eden Mill’s original ceramic bottles.
This announcement coincides with Eden Mill launching a whopping nine new premium gins, which aim to showcase the distillery’s passion for innovation and experimentation.
Combining locally sourced botanicals with global inspiration, the range includes Rosa Rosa Gin, made using two rose varieties, Forager Gin, made from berries found in the hedgerows of St Andrew’s, and Passion Gin, combining passionfruit and coconut.
Tony Kelly, CEO and co-founder of Eden Mill said: “At Eden Mill we are passionate about celebrating the best of old and new. Our gins are inspired by our heritage and roots in St Andrews, and the hidden stories of our home and it is wonderful to see these stories told across our new bottles in beautiful illustrations.
“We’re proud to be sharing this new range alongside some of our most popular gins in our innovative new bottle design. Standardising our bottle production across all of our gins to this more sustainable design will greatly help us reduce waste, as we continue to push boundaries and move a step closer to a brighter, cleaner, clearer future for our distillery and the spirits industry.”
Featuring unique woodcut-style prints on their labels commissioned by Eden Mill’s design agency, Tangent, the new glass bottles have been produced by wholesale bottle merchants Croxsons.
Eden Mill’s premium new gin range (all 40% ABV) is available to buy from £25 for a 70cl bottle.
