Twelve Keys Gin is so named from the 16th-century alchemical text The Twelve Keys of Basil Valentine. Each of the mysterious keys was a step in the process of alchemy, the process of turning base metal into the elixir of life, aka. the philosopher’s stone.

Eden Mill is a brewery/distillery, the only one in Scotland to make whisky, gin and beer, bringing back to life an old distillery on the banks of the River Eden in St. Andrews, Fife. Eden Mill prides itself on using local botanicals from the surrounding estuary, including sea buckthorn, the key botanical in its Original Gin. The master distillers' skill at making gin comes from their talent at making whisky. Eden Mill Love Gin is the second gin in their core range of small-batch vapour infused gins.
Whirlybird Gin is the latest expression in a long line of Black Shuck gins from the beautiful county of Norfolk (UK).

Not only have you got yourself a rather tasty gin you are contributing to a worthy cause.
