Hunting Lodges - Hideout Widget Build


The Botanist Hunting Lodges at Mac & Wild Devonshire Square are now open and available to book (until 20th January 2018).

In partnership with our favourite Scottish Gin, The Botanist, these cosy Highland-inspired hunting lodges offer Londoner’s a taste of the Highlands without stepping a foot out of the Square Mile.

Decked out with festive pine, candles, twinkling lights, heather shrubs, Scottish books, your very own speaker (so you and your guests can party to your own Christmas playlists – perfect for a cracking festive celebration!), and plenty of fur blankets and tartan rugs to wrap up in on the chilly nights – our hunting lodges are the perfect festive retreat this winter.


Leading the festivities is the specially curated gin-based winter cocktail menu from The Botanist. Highlights from the menu include The Botanist Winter Elixir Bramblea warming but refreshing muddle of The Botanist Gin, Christmas Syrup, Aelder Elderberry Elixir, Lemon Juice and fresh blackberries, and The Botanist Apple Collins, The Botanist Gin, Cloudy Apple Juice, Lemon Juice, Cinnamon Sugar, Fever Tree Soda – and many more!

Food served in the lodges will feature some of our favourites such as Scotch Eggs and Haggis Pops, as well as other hearty highland treats including our award-winning Veni-Moo burger, Venison Chateaubriand, Rib-Eye steak and our annual festive favourite – the Mac & Wild Christmas Burger. For pudding there’s Whisky Sticky Toffee Pudding, as well as lashing of cheese, crackers and festive chutney…and much, much more!

Come join us for a festive fling…in the city!

The Botanist is a truly unique gin and a representation of the region’s progressive heritage. Nine classic gin botanicals are augmented by 22 local herbs and flowers, all foraged responsibly by hand from the hills, shores and bogs of the Hebridean Island by botanical scientists.

Taking the intricate craft of distillation to new heights, The Botanist has a rich, mellow taste and a citrus freshness to stimulate the taste buds. From apple mint, coriander and orange and lemon peel, to honey, coconut and wild mint, the spirit is a delectable expression of the heart and soul of its home, Islay. Read more.
