The spokesman said the situation had "nothing to do with King William's associations or anything like that". 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! It was the arrival of a Dutchman to the English throne that drove the popularity of jenever in England and turned gin from being a medicine to a fashionable drink. The complainant wrote that the use of King William of Orange as branding and the alcohol by volume (ABV) of 16. In 1689, King William of Orange had moved into Hampton Court Palace and immediately enacted a series of laws to encourage gin distillation, this is a tribute to his critical part in the launch of gin.

Queen Anne inadvertently encouraged increased gin production by cancelling the charter which Charles I had issued to the Worshipful Company of Distillers granting them sole rights to distil within the cities of Westminster and London and 21 miles around. The complaint was upheld, and producers Belcondie will work with the Portman Group’s Advisory Service to change potentially offensive elements on the label. Nicola Williams, chair of the Independent Complaints Panel, said of the verdict: “The overall impression of a product should always be considered carefully and in this instance, it was a combination of elements that when considered together, created a clear link to sectarianism in a manner that could still be considered divisive and inflammatory today.

Incidentally, the Dutch term 'jenever' or 'jenever' was borrowed from Old French 'genevre' (modern French genièvre) meaning 'juniper tree', which in turn comes from the Latin word for the tree 'juniperus'. The recipe, which was amazingly uncovered in the British Library’s rare book section, lists the original ingredients but unfortunately, the quantities were concealed by code, which proved unbreakable. Giving the ABV to two decimal places was interpreted as a reference to the year 1690, when William of Orange’s Protestant forces defeated the army of deposed Catholic monarch James II at the Battle of the Boyne. Fortuitously, the new act also helped English farmers who by selling surplus grain to the distillers were able to pay higher rents to the landowners, who dominated both houses of Parliament and whose support the king needed for his war. Drink creator Belcondie Ltd – which has also released a King William Gin and owns trademarks for for King William Rum and King William Whisky – insists the drink is for everyone and not targeted at any particular football supporters such as Rangers fans.

The ICP found the use of two decimal places “unusual” and “intentional” and noted that it appeared without a percentage sign which “framed the number as a historical date reference in the context of King William of Orange”.Distilled five times to give exceptional purity our distiller has developed this blood orange gin with our chosen recipe of botanicals which include coriander, angelica, lime, cassia and nutmeg. 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.

Love this gin normally only stay with non flavoured buts its my grandads anniversary soon and he was an ornageman its a lovely cheers for him. The first known written use of the word 'gin' appears in a 1714 work, 'The Fable of the Bees, or Private Vices, Publick Benefits' by Bernard Mandeville.The charity highlighted the importance of symbolism and how historical figures, imagery, colours and dates could be viewed in the context of identity, intolerance and religious prejudice in Scotland today.
