The   name   refers   to   King's   College,   University   of Aberdeen,   which   has   an ornate entry porch with a top like a crown. The   university   celebrated   its   quincentenary   in   1995   and   John   Drewry published a book of appropriately named celebratory dances. Knockando,   the   whisky   distillers,   produced   a   20   year   old   single   malt (distilled   in   1974   and   bottled   in   1995).   In   2016   a   bottle   failed   to   reach its   reserve   price   at   auction   -   the   highest   bid   being   £110   -   though   bottles did sell for £90 in 2017.
