Lilliard Gin is made using the natural resources of the Southern Scottish valleys including spring water from the Teviot valley and botanicals which are foraged in the region. Breaking with tradition by naming the still after a male, the small batch dry gin is produced in Donald, one of the smallest working copper stills in the UK. The Lilliard name comes from a local Borders legend. In 1545 the Battle of Ancrum Moor, just north of the distillery, was fought between the Scots and English. Lilliard was the heroine of the battle as she fought to avenge the murder of her lover at the hands of the English. Therefore, it was only right that the gin bears her name.
