Scotland’s first single site brewery and distillery, Eden Mill, has today (Sunday 3rd February 2019) announced further expansion after the acquisition of the aptly named, Eden River Brewery in Penrith, Cumbria for an undisclosed amount.
Eden River Brewery will increase production by an equivalent of 50,000 nine litre cases per year – more than doubling Eden Mills own current capacity and will create a further 12 jobs at the plant.
Paul Miller, Co-Founder of Eden Mill said: “Thanks to a growth trend amongst our customer base […] our acquisition of Eden River Brewery will allow us to drastically increase our production on many of our products.”
However, Eden Mill will continue to distil its gin and whisky and brew its beer at its home in St Andrews.
Jason Hill, Director of Eden River said: “When we were approached by Eden Mill, I knew immediately that this was […] the right team of people we could work with. We all had a vision of the quality products and identified that highlighting the ‘craft’ aspects of our products would allow for us to expand yet stay personal to our customers.”
The deal follows a successful year for Eden Mill, having recently been awarded Scottish Gin of the Year at the Annual Scottish Gin Awards, as well as being awarded the most accolades, five in total, including London Dry Gin of the Year. Eden Mill also won Best Pale Ale at the Scottish Beer Awards.
