Premium English Flavoured Gin
Here you get a really exciting gin. The scent of fresh stone fruits emerges immediately, gently followed by notes with juniper and citrus peel. The characteristic taste of quince dominates the palate that provides space for sweetness of apricots and peaches, with a long fruity finish that reminds one of orange blossoms and grind grapefruit. A taste of adventure and discovery runs through all eight generations of the Whitley Neill family tree. So it should not come as a surprise that Frederick Neill at the turn of the century was on a journey through Persia, where he discovered a number of exotic fruits, herbs and spices to inspire the Greenall Whitley family collection of Gin recipes. While he was there, he was surprised to discover women’s fruits that grew in the old mountains. And it is the unmistakable Turkish quince, mixed with a soft mix of Persian herbs and spices that give Whitley Neill Quince Gin its characteristic, amazing taste. A handmade gin of exceptional quality, with a taste that is as rich as his ancestors.
Whitley Neill Gin is made of a 100% grainspirit that is completed with botany before it is distilled in a beautiful antique copper pot, still called ‘Constance’, which is over 100 years old.
Only the purest water is used and each of the nine botanist is carefully selected to ensure that they are of the highest quality. Whitley Neills Tagline “Crafted from the Life of Life” goes a long way in describing what these botany can be.
By gathering a mix of innovative botanists such as gooseberry and baobab fruit to its range, it also has other more traditional botanical items such as juniper, coriander, lemon and orange peel, Angelica root, Cassia Bark and Orris Rod.
The Creator Johnny Neill says it reflects his fresh views from the 21st century, while also refers to the Ginna’s heritage and the London-based gin distillation experience that is in use at the distillery.
