Inspired by the Pentland Hills, King's Hill Gin is named after a reference to a bet made by King Robert the Bruce and Sir William St Clair of Roslin. Roaming the hills was a legendary white stag which no one could catch, prompting Sir William to bet that his dogs could bring the beast down. The stakes were high: if he was successful, he was to have the whole range of hills, and if he lost he would die. Luckily for Sir William his dogs caught the beast and he won the bet. King’s Hill Gin has been created with botanicals gathered in the same hills and the name is a tribute to the courage of the man who claimed them. It is produced by the Pentland Still near Edinburgh and bottled with a design intended to reflect the outline of the Pentland Hills.
