And finally… drink and drive

And finally... drink and drive

Guardbridge-based Eden Mill has launched a drive-through service so customers can purchase gin during the UK’s coronavirus crisis.

The service allowed gin lovers to drive up to the site, wait at the north entrance gate to the Eden Campus in their car.

A staff member will then take their order, bag it up and bring it to them, before paying with a contactless card.

NHS staff will also benefit from a 25% discount and free delivery of Eden Mill stock.

Euan Kinninmonth, retail department leader at Eden Mill, said: “With everything the way it is just now, we’ve had to be innovative in our response to the crisis to find ways to continue to trade.

“I came up with this idea because I wanted to create something that respected social distancing out of care to our customers, but which still allowed them to continue to buy and enjoy our craft products.

“People can drive to our entrance, we can come take their order, gather their order together and complete the transaction with cash or contactless card.”
