    Hibs gin

    I pre-registered for this but never got an email from them for the pre-sale. Looks like it's sold out now. Anyone get any?

    So a fair few folk didn't get the email to tell them how to buy and the product went on sale a day early?
    Ive emailed them to ask why they didnt email everyone. As it stands, still no way of accessing the stuff.

    That's good if they share the magic email with everyone who registered for it.

    That's some sales team they've got. Surely the feedback from the promotion would have given them an idea of the number of take ups?

    Got an email on sunday night... wouldn't have seen it till it was too late.

    Got a txt from a mate telling me and got a bottle.

    They can rustle amother batch of that hooch up in an afternoon... gin is a big con... maybe more of a cowshed discussion though.

    I'm only wanting it as the bottle looks pretty smart! £30+ for 500ml isn't shy though, not like gin is particularly difficult to make. You could get a full size bottle of a nice malt for that.

    £32.50 + about £6 delivery. Steep.

    I ordered a bottle a couple of nights ago, and got an e-mail earlier to say it's on the way...

    Not a gin fan myself but it's a cracking bottle so more likely it's going to sit looking nice on the sideboard rather than get drunk. That's the plan, anyway.

    There is no mutual exclusivity there Joe.


    Sometimes I just sit on the sideboard looking nice but inevitably I got drunk first.

    It’s very pleasant, fairly sweet but the aroma of the infused turf is a joy.

    Ha ha they claim it’s Easter Road but perhaps your right. Imagine if they had made a gray902 gin in June 16. Would have shifted a couple

    Spoke to Eden Mill on Saturday at a food festival. Boy assured me that they know this will be a big seller and are well prepared for demand.

    Delivered this morning and the wife decided it's too nice a bottle to open but would rather have 2 litres of Gordon's and mixers for the same price.

    It appears that they have charged me for postage but not sent me anything. The invoice I got said the costs for postage but the gin part of the order was not processed.i have tried to contact them every day since Wednesday but they are not answering the phone or emails. Shambles.

    Yep. Ordered last week and had a postcard yesterday when we got back in saying it would be here today. Email stating delivery due 2.45 - 3.45pm.

    Three of the beauties arrived today at 3.10pm.

    Lovely looking bottles and one looking at me right now as I work away.....

    fj - hanging in there....

    Mine arrived yesterday...dispatched from Northampton I think? kinda challenges the whole St. Andrews thing a wee bit, unless it's being made/bottled in St.A then sent to Northampton for dispatch?

    Got a bottle delivered yesterday for a Xmas present, arrived with a hairline fracture on it with the gin weeping out.

    Downside :- had to email and phone them ,

    Upside :- sending me a replacement within 7 working days .

    Duly decanted into a decanter funnily enough.
    @SKII , took me about 4 attempts over an hour to get through.
    @Smurf she did mention on phone that it had been really popular and they’re making more hence my 7 working day wait for the replacement

    Smells lovely btw

    Mine arrived last week but only cracked it open tonight.

    Just so happens my wife is a bar manager and has had “gin training” (yes, seriously) from Eden Mill. So, her advice upon having a whiff and a sip of it straight was:

    Wine glass. Half fill with ice. 50ml of the gin. Add a chopped strawberry. Top up with tonic and add a pinch of cracked black pepper.

    Super tasty!

    Mine is on its way, together with a tenner off my next purchase as an apology for tardiness.





    Guess I’ll have to buy another bottle to take advantage of that kind offer.

    No word from them for over two weeks as my order sits in the 'processing stage'.

    Unable to get through on the phone or email to them.

    Seems like they have bitten off more than they can chew and they are not coping with the demand.

    Just had someone email me about this.

    Apparently a LOT of orders were damaged in the way mentioned above, cracks in the glass etc

    They reviewed their couriers and have changed them as they were being treated roughly they felt.

    Anyone with a delay may be in the same situation.

    I can see the interest of a collectible Hibs bottle, I get that.

    I'm just wondering how long the rash of 'gin bars' on the high street is going to last. Not very long is my thought.

    Some excellent and persuasive marketing obviously going off on what was a reasonably unfashionable drink previously.
