To commemorate one of the most important landmarks found in the town of Huntly, Duncan Taylor has released the Battlehill range of Scotland’s finest distilled spirit.
Duncan Taylor is located in Huntly, a small town in North East Scotland that is rich in heritage and steeped in history.
Battlehill holds a historical significance in the battle for the throne between Robert The Bruce and John Comyn, Earl of Buchan, who was one of the most powerful nobles in Scotland. The battle took place in December 1307 on a hill at Slioch in Huntly, now known as Battlehill.
