It takes 20 years for the African Baobab tree to bear fruit. So it’s fitting that the fruit’s pulp became the signature botanical of Whitley Neill Handcrafted dry Gin. This exceptional drink was created by Johnny Neill, a direct descendant of 8 generations of distillers and the last in 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 a 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 essences 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, pot pourri 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.
50ml Whitley Neill Gin, Lamb & Watt Original Tonic Water and an orange wheel. Add 50ml of Whitley Neill Gin to a large balloon glass half-filled with ice. Top with Lamb & Watt Original Tonic Water and garnish with an orange wheel.
Enjoy neat, or blend over ice with premium tonic water and a slice or two of orange.
