The St Andrews based Eden Mill Distillery, has today announced the launch of its first single malt Scotch whisky, the first in the region for over 160 years.

Eden Mill Hip Flask Series (47% ABV) is comprised of seven single malts, matured in what the brand describes as ‘honey casks’ – first-fill and virgin oak casks, including sherry hogsheads and French virgin octaves, which have been hand-selected from all around the world, from Speyside to Spain.

As each cask only holds a small amount of liquid, Eden Mill is releasing the series in 20cl bottles, so as many whisky fans as possible can have a taste of what’s to come from the distillery.

A 70cl bottling of Eden Mill single malt whisky, is due to be released this summer, with those purchasing a bottle from the Hip Flask Series given the opportunity to be among the first to sign up to the exclusive waiting list.

Commenting on the news, Paul Miller, Co-Founder of Eden Mill, said: “St Andrews has a rich history when it comes to whisky, and now over a century and a half later we’re picking it up where it left off – on the site of the old Seggie Distillery that Eden Mill now stands on. The Hip Flask Series is about applying the pioneering and experimental nature synonymous with Eden Mill to single malt whisky, showing the power of trying different grains, processes, maturation techniques and woods to highlight what you can do differently within the realm of single malt Scotch whisky.”

Limited to just 3,800 bottles, the Eden Mill Hip Flask Series, is now available from edenmill.com for a RRP of £25.00 per bottle.
