The area around St. Andrews was home to Scotch Whisky’s Haig family and their Seggie Distillery, but after it closed in 1850, the whisky industry largely moved away from St. Andrews. Paul Miller brought it back when his Eden Mill Brewery started distilling whisky in 2014, and now, the first Eden Mill single malts are reaching the market. Miller and his team led by head distiller Scott Ferguson have been challenging the traditions of Scotch Whisky while respecting the heritage, and they’ll join us on WhiskyCast In-Depth. We’ll also have news on another music icon’s entry into the world of whiskies, details on a one-of-a-kind Glenfarclas rescued from the back of a cupboard, and since it’s Kentucky Derby week, we’ll look at the history of horse racing’s favorite cocktail, the Mint Julep, in our new “Behind the Label” segment.
