Eden Mill snaps up Eden River to expand production

Published:  04 February, 2019

Eden Mill, Scotland’s first single site brewery and distillery, has targeted further expansion after acquiring Eden River Brewery in Penrith, Cumbria, for an undisclosed amount.

The acquisition will allow Eden Mill to boost production by the equivalent of 50,000 nine litre cases per year, doubling overall production capacity and creating 12 new jobs. It will also enable Eden Mill to bottle and can part of its portfolio in the North of England, allowing for faster and easier distribution.

Eden Mill will continue to distil its gin and whisky and brew its beer at its original site in St Andrews.

“Thanks to a growth trend amongst our customer base and our ongoing partnership with big retailers such as, Aldi, Tesco and Sainsbury’s, our acquisition of Eden River Brewery will allow us to drastically increase our production on many of our products,” said Paul Miller, co-founder of Eden Mill.

“Eden River Brewery is highly complementary to our business and we share commonalities in products and approach, making us hugely excited about our combined potential,” he added.

Eden River director Jason Hill said: “When we were approached by Eden Mill, I knew immediately that this was the kind of company, and 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.

“Like Eden Mill, our company is very hands on and we are invested in making sure we are part of perfecting our products from conception to consumption. Everyone here at Eden River is looking forward to a positive and prosperous new year.”

Since launching in 2012, Eden Mill has undergone rapid expansion and produces hundreds of gin, whisky, beer and liqueur products stocked in Asda, Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, John Lewis and more.
