The labels on both gins include the well-known image of King William with his sword in his hand astride his white horse at the Boyne. A local cure came from the bark of the chinchona or ‘fever’ tree, which contained the notoriously bitter quinine. The authors of the book – The Company of Distillers of London – had encrypted the recipe to ensure that only its members could recreate it. The social responsibility body and regulator for alcohol labelling, packaging and promotion in the UK upheld the objection finding the imagery to be “divisive and inflammatory”. So, unsurprisingly, this legislation was enough to persuade many innkeepers to start distilling their own gin thus making them tradesmen engaged in distilling and so absolved from having to house the unwanted guests.

Manufactured by Belcondie, which also produces King William Gin, the product was marketed as a rival to Buckfast. And the way he did that was by liberalising the distillation of gin in 1690 - which meant farmers grew more crops, which could be taxed, and so they raised more capital.We’ve since had a lot of positive feedback on our gin from areas within Scotland and Northern Ireland and are fully expecting King William to making an appearance on plenty of other shores around the globe very soon!

When the Gin launched we received a little bit of stick but we took it as it seemed to be intended, which was light-hearted, but if they don’t like us, we don’t care. The producers previously said it was only after sales of the gin soared in Northern Ireland that they realised how significant King William was to people here.BLOOD ORANGE, AS A NOD TO THE DUTCH KING WILLIAM OF ORANGE, LATTERLY WILLIAM III WHO RESIDED AT HAMPTON COURT PALACE, IS OUR MAIN BOTANICAL ALONG WITH LEMON THYME AND COSTMARY, WHICH ARE BOTH STILL GROWN AT THE PALACE KITCHEN GARDEN. Please always read the labels, warnings, and directions provided with the product before using or consuming a product. Nil by Mouth explained: “In the context of Glasgow, the city topped the table for number of religiously aggravated arrests every year, in many of which alcohol played a part, and that issues with religious prejudice since the reformation were indisputable. We launched King William Gin after finding out he liberalised the manufacture of Gin in the UK with his first act of Parliament in 1690.

This meant the distilling trade was given a monopoly and regulated within 21 miles of the cities of London and Westminster. As well as a large image of William of Orange, later King William III, riding into battle on the label, the bottle also features several orange motifs, a colour closely connected to militant Scottish and Irish Protestantism. At that time French brandy was the most popular spirit in Britain; rum was not established; whiskey was only enjoyed by the Scots and the Irish; and vodka was hundreds of years away from breaking out of Poland and Russia. The complaint was upheld, and producers Belcondie will work with the Portman Group’s Advisory Service to change potentially offensive elements on the label.

However, while small batch and artisan liquors have become the drinks of the season, very few of us would think that the popularity of the spirit can be traced back to King William III taking the English throne in 1689. By the early 1770s some 85% of the jenever produced in Schiedam was exported to markets such as England, France, Spain, the East and West Indies and North America.
