Eden Mill becomes Scottish Rugby’s first ever official gin partner

Scotland’s first single site distillery and brewery, Eden Mill has signed up to become Scottish Rugby’s first ever official gin partner.

The St Andrews-based distillers will also have its gin featured as the official gin of Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh Rugby, appearing and supporting the clubs throughout the season with on-site bars at games.

The four-year partnership will be officially unveiled to supporters at the professional clubs’ home games this season and Scotland’s opening Autumn Test match against Australia on 12 November at BT Murrayfield.

The Scottish craft gin brand will be on site at all matches in the stadium grounds with a pop-up gin bar and Airstream trailer on match-days, offering a range of beverages for supporters, including their popular Love Gin, Oak Gin, Hop Gin and specialty gin cocktails.

Eden Mill used locally-sourced ingredients and exports to 15 countries, promoting Scotland’s trades on a global scale.

Eden Mill founder and co-owner, Paul Miller, said, “This is a proud moment for Eden Mill and a great opportunity, which we are incredibly excited about.

“We look forward to being part of the growing success and popularity of the game at professional club and international level over the years to come.”

Scottish Rugby head of marketing and sponsorship, Toni Blackhurst, said, “We are delighted to welcome Eden Mill to our growing family of partners.

“Supporters are turning out at Scotland and professional club rugby matches in record numbers. New partnerships, like the one announced today, help us enhance the range of drinks available to fans enjoying a world-class day out at BT Murrayfield.

“We look forward to working with such an exciting young company like Eden Mill over the coming years.”
