Craft distillers Eden Mill have launched a limited-edition blue ceramic bottle of their award-winning original gin to show their support and raise funds for the NHS.

The St Andrews based distillery is set to give £2 from every original gin blue bottle sold to help support frontline healthcare workers helping to battle Covid-19.

5,000 bottles have been created to be sold across the coming months, with donations being made each month to a different NHS associated charity or project.

The first donation will be made to Masks 4 NHS Heroes, a crowdfunding effort set up by front-line NHS doctors to help raise money for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

This equipment will be distributed to all front-line staff including paramedics, porters, cleaning staff, healthcare assistants, catering staff, physiotherapists and NHS volunteers.

CEO of Eden Mill, Paul Miller said: “By creating 5,000 limited edition blue bottles of our original gin we hope to raise £10,000 in the coming months to donate to NHS Charities and projects.

“We have chosen Masks 4 NHS Heroes to receive the first donation because the provision of personal protection equipment is so essential for NHS staff.

“We are so proud and thankful for all of our healthcare heroes doing incredible work at this time to save lives and battle this virus. We hope this can make even a small difference.”

How to buy a blue bottle

The 70cl limited edition bottles are available to buy direct from Eden Mill’s website for £30 or can be ordered from Eden Mill’s Click and Collect service at their distillery site in Guardbridge, St. Andrews.

The Eden Mill original gin is made from juniper botanicals, lemon balm and Fife’s seabuckthorn berries, and is one of Eden Mill’s most popular bottles.

This blue bottle scheme is the latest initiative from Eden Mill showing their support of the NHS. The gin distillery have also been offering 25 percent discount and free delivery on all purchases on the site for NHS staff to say cheers for all their incredible work.
