Albin Hill established Hill’s Liguere in 1920. He starting out as a wine wholesaler and soon after began producing his own liquor and liqueurs. His son Radomil was born in 1924. He grew up with the business and in his late teens went to Prague to study in the school of liqueur mixing and production. At that time there were only 3 such schools in the whole of Europe, in Berlin, Paris, and Prague.
In 1947, Radomil Hill started his own arm of the firm in Valasske Mezirici, in North Moravia. The father and son operation prospered producing specialties such as Absinth, Radigast (herbal liqueur named after the Slavic God of War) 160 proof ‘Alpsky Rum’ (Alp Style Rum), and Zubrovka (Bison Grass Vodka).
