Eden Mill St Andrews is a specialist independent microbrewery and distillery based in Guardbridge, Scotland, about 3 miles (5 km) north-west of St Andrews. It is located on a 38-acre site owned by the University of St Andrews. Brewing began in July 2012 and the brewery was "on track to lift turnover from £500,000 in its first full year to around £2 million in 2014".[1]

Eden Mill became Scotland's first combined brewery and distillery[2] when they began the production of Scotch whisky and gin in 2014.

History[edit]

The site of the brewery is on the banks of the Eden Estuary and has had a long history of brewing and distilling. For most of the 19th century, the Haig Family operated a whisky distillery here. In 1860, they started distilling whisky elsewhere in Fife, and turned the site into a brewery and paper mill. The brewery closed in 1882. The last brewery in St Andrews closed soon after, in 1902. The paper mill closed in 2008.

Beers[edit]

Eden Mill St Andrews produce bottled beers such as Traditional Ales, IPA and Craft Lagers. Many of these beers are also for sale in casks.

Spirits[edit]
