Scottish brewer and distiller Eden Mill has unveiled a range of single malt whiskies, called the Hip Flask Series.

The collection comprises seven expressions, which have all been matured in oak honey casks. Each expression is numbered and has different notes depending on what type of honey cask it has been matured in.

Hip Flask Series No 6 was matured in a sherry cask and has sweet icing sugar aromas combined with notes of rum raisin, coffee and honeycomb. No 2 was matured in US virgin oak octaves and has aromas of cinnamon, walnuts and pepper, as well as a distinct malt and grain taste with hints of chocolate and coffee.

Paul Miller, co-founder of Eden Mill, said: “St Andrews has a rich history when it comes to whisky, and now over a century and a half later we’re picking it up where it left off.

“The Hip Flask Series is about applying the pioneering and experimental nature synonymous with Eden Mill to single malt whisky, showing the power of trying different grains, processes, maturation techniques and woods to highlight what you can do differently within the realm of single malt Scotch whisky.

“What people are tasting now is the start of a journey that will see the Eden Mill single malt evolve over ten, 20 and 30 years. The passion of our small team of distillers is evident in every drop of liquid we have released, and we can’t wait to share it with the world”.

Eden Mill was re-opened in 2012; the distillery was originally opened in 1810 and only produced whiskies. The modern version was Scotland’s first single-site brewery and distillery; as well as whiskies, the company produces gins, beers and canned cocktails.

Each expression in the hip flask series is packaged in 20cl bottles and retail on the company’s website for £25 each.

The series is available in smaller bottles than the rest of the distiller’s spirits because the casks the products are matured in are smaller than other casks.
