Whitley Neill is an exceptional London dry gin, made in England, inspired by vibrant gin with bold, warm flavours - perfect for bringing cocktails to life. This gin is the product of two of my passions in life; the desire to make a truly great gin and my love of my wife's homeland of Africa. These passions have inspired me to create a gin that blends tradition with a twist of vitality.
I searched for a signature botanical which best captures the spirit of Africa and found it in the symbolic baobab tree. Known as the 'tree of life', the baobab's wild fruit brings energy to a blend that also balances the flavours of cape gooseberry and seven other botanicals. My gin is firmly rooted in the traditions of gin making which have been passed down through four generations of my family. Produced in very small batches in an antique copper pot still, this is a gin of exceptional quality and taste.
