Scottish Rugby is toasting a new partnership with Eden Mill, Scotland’s first single-site distillery and brewery, which will see the Fife drinks firm become the governing body’s first ever “official gin partner” for four years.

Eden Mill will also become the official gin of Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh Rugby, appearing and supporting the clubs throughout the season with on-site bars at games.

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, added: “New partnerships, like the one announced, 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.”

Eden Mill is based on a single site, just outside St Andrews, which is rooted in distilling and brewing history. The firm has also recently revived whisky making at the same location where the famous Haig family made whisky, gin and beer for most of the 19th century.
