Fast Track 100

Brewing returned to St Andrews after a hiatus of more than a century when Eden Mill began its operation. Directors Paul Miller, 58, and Tony Kelly, 56, met through football and founded the company in 2012. Initially focused on beer, it began distilling in 2014. Its range includes Eden Mill original gin, a range of ready-to-drink gin cocktails and a spiced rhubarb-crumble gin liqueur, while visitors can attend tastings and mixing experiences. This year has seen the acquisition of the aptly named Eden River Brewery in Cumbria, and sales rose to £7.8m. The company is working on a new site, to be located on St Andrews University’s Eden campus.
