Whitley Neill Quince Gin
|Distilled in||Liverpool, England|
|Garnish with||Red Apple & Orange|
Whitley Neill Quince Gin is a fantastic new spirit inspired by a family adventure across the East.
Whitley Neill is made in England and inspired by Africa. Coming from a long line of Master Distiller’s, Johnny Neill was inspired to create a gin that blends tradition with a twist of vitality. The result is a unique blend of nine botanicals including two carefully selected from South Africa - the wild citrus fruit of the baobab tree and aromatic Cape gooseberries.
Blending Persian herbs with Turkish quince juice, Whitley Neill Quince Gin has prominent stone fruits (peaches and apricots) but is dominated by the unmistakable flavour of quince. Coriander and lemon zest make a notable appearance before ending with a long, fruity finish. This spirit has been inspired by the Greenall Whitley family’s taste for adventure and discovery.
This is a truly wonderful gin. It's quite sweet but the quince flavour gives it enough edge and body to make it really successful. I always fancy a good G&T in summer but this one would also work during the colder months of the year. It would probably be really good as a sorbet too, maybe with some ginger. Or mixed with lemon sorbet as a slushy drink like you find on Menorca.
