In the nosing of the premium Whitley Neill Handcrafted Dry Gin it has a full and floral aroma, from which the fragrance of spicy juniper berry is especially evident. The taste of the soft and smooth Whitley Neill Handcrafted Dry Gin is very complex with a pleasant sharpness. The flavour of juniper berry remains on the palate for some time. The finish of the Gin is very mild and long lasting.
It is thanks to Johnny Neill, the son of a traditional English family distillery, that their Gin range has been extended by another exotic Gin. After four generations and 250 years of experience, Johnny Neill decided to create another Gin in 2005 which is Neill's interpretation for his love for South Africa in the form of an alcoholic beverage . Due to the long tradition of the distillery the Gin is made in the traditional manner and is distilled in small batches. The basis of the enigmatic Whitley Neill Handcrafted Dry Gin are nine hand picked Botanicals which are primarily used for typical Gin like spicy juniper berry, angelica, coriander seed, zesty orange peel, Kassiarinde, lemon zest and iris roots. The Whitley Neill Handcrafted Dry Gin also has some unusual, rare and exotic Botanicals, which are responsible for the particular taste and complexity of this superb Gin. These include the South African fruit of the baobab tree and Cape gooseberries, which reflect the love of Neill's South Africa. The Gin is distilled in a 100-year-old copper pot still. The advantage of this approach is that high quality and optimal flavour development can be ensured.
Visually the award winning Whitley Neill Handcrafted Dry Gin makes a good figure.

This Gin is the perfect gift for any Gin lover or the perfect visual compliment to any Gin collection. The Whitley Neill Handcrafted Dry Gin is suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
