Eden Mill have unveiled an exclusive limited edition 800 bottles of its 2020 Release Single Malt whisky.

Retailing at £85, the 2020 release is the fourth single malt whisky by Eden Mill in three years, since the unveiling of the first bottling in 2017 from their distillery just outside St Andrews.

Collectors can buy the bottle on its own or as part of a special Eden Mill whisky hamper alongside two new additions to Eden Mill’s hipflask series.

Scott Ferguson, Eden Mill’s head distiller, spoke about the 2020 batch, saying: “The liquid we have crafted pushes the boundaries of our previous whisky expressions.

“This small batch of Eden Mill single malt showcases the evolution of cask and spirit, bringing you light vanilla and toasted cinnamon from bourbon barrels, combined with the rich fruit and subtle spice from our distinctive range of sherry casks, leading to a creamy biscuity finish.”

Paul Miller, co-founder of Eden Mill added: “This limited release is a real reflection of the team, our passion and Eden Mill’s pioneering spirit which has stayed strong throughout 2020.

"We can’t wait for people to enjoy a dram of our 2020 Single Malt Scotch safely at home this festive season.

"We anticipate the new year with excitement and hope as we look forward to the relief a vaccine will bring and also the completion of our new carbon neutral single malt distillery in St Andrews, which will be the first of its kind in Scotland and a significant step in our Eden Mill journey.”

2020 Single Malt Scotch Whisky tasting notes

Nose: Sherry fruit forward, with bright fruity notes of raisin and plum and a lively oak spice alongside. Under these sweet notes is a creamy maltiness and light hint of apricot.

Taste: Peppery spice initially, with rich raisin and date sweetness. Spice persists as the sweetness begins to fade, with hints of toasted cinnamon and light vanilla sweetness towards the end, reminiscent of butterscotch candy.

Finish: As the spice fades, hints of roasted malt and crumbly shortbread linger. Sweet and spicy notes balance to leave a gentle apricot fruit and subtle cassia spice.
