Founded in late 2017 by Alexander Morrison, The Pentland Still's first spirit - King's Hill Gin - was launched in July 2018. To celebrate the local area around the distillery, Alexander handpicks the botanicals used from the Pentland Hills. The name comes from a bet between King Robert the Bruce and Sir William 'The Crusader' Sinclair of Roslin. The wager - to catch the elusive white Pentland Stag - was won by Sinclair who named the hill side in the King's honour. Created with botanicals grown high in the hill that he won from the king, King's Hill Gin is a salute to the Crusader. Made in batches of around 200 bottles in Marion, a traditional Iberian copper pot still. The bottle was redesigned in August 2020 with the copper detail on the front to celebrate Marion and a diamond effect which is a nod to the royal inspiration behind the gin
