The Pentland Still

Pentland Hills, Midlothian, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

King’s Hill is a small batch Scottish Gin handcrafted in the Pentland Hills, Edinburgh. Made in batches of around 200 bottles in Marion, a traditional Iberian copper pot still, King’s Hill combines traditional gin botanicals such as juniper, orris root and coriander with botanicals handpicked from the Pentland Hills including gorse and elderflower.

King’s Hill Gin takes its name 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.
