Key Information

This exceptional drink was created by Johnny Neill, a direct descendant of a long line of distillers, whose heritage stretches back as far as the Baobab trees found in Africa today. Inspired by his family’s sense of adventure, Johnny strove to create his own signature blend of Gin: a tribute to his English distilling heritage, and homage to the enigmatic beauty of his wife’s African homeland.

The result is Whitley Neill Handcrafted dry Gin; a balanced, distinctive Gin that blends classic Gin botanicals with exotic African botanicals to create a liquid with a flavour as unique as its heritage.

Whitley Neill Gin is slightly softer and much smoother than traditional Gins, with rich notes of juniper and citrus, potpourri and exotic spices. The finish is a long one, with a subtle fade of herbs, cocoa and candied lemon peels, while the nose is both citrus-sweet and peppery, with a distinctive floral aroma.

After falling in love with their Quince Gin, I had to try this one and though utterly diffrent, it is worthy its awards. Strong and lightly spicy, delicate tastes of tropical fruit, well balanced with botanicals, wonderful just on its own, an other Gin for my shelf Cant wait to have the Rhubarb and Ginger in my cuboard

Along with Saffron Gin and Hendricks (both available here), these are the best Gins I know of. Far better than Tanqueray or Bombay Sapphire in my opinion. But I have yet to try Bulldog, Sacred, or the London No 1 Blue Gin which are high on my list to get. But these will have to be very good to beat Whitley, Saffron or Hendricks...

This Gin is amazing. I was given a battle 2 Christmases back as a present and have not looked back since. Excellent flavour and makes a mean G&T.
