A delightfully sweet citrus-forward Gin with a creamy texture and effervescent lightness.

John James Whitley Neill comes from eight generations of distillers, and he’s a direct descendant of Thomas Greenall. If you are reading this from just about anywhere in the UK, you might instantly recognize that the Greenall name has been associated with distilling in England — Gin in particular — for 250 years. As a child, he happened upon a cache of bottles in his grandmother’s storage, all full and labeled with the family name. This experience inspired him to take up the family tradition. And things are going well so far.

All Whitley Neill Spirits are distilled in a small-format, 100-year-old, copper-pot still — the oldest operating still in the UK. They shun the "continuous distillation" process that ramps up volume, choosing to start and finish one batch at a time.

Whitley Neill is famous for breaking conventions in Gin-making. They were one of the first to step outside of the "London Dry Box" that held the Gin-drinking world in a cage of conformity for decades. Whitley Neill Pink Grapefruit Gin is one of their most delightful examples.

They say that this Gin was inspired by "The citrus groves of Spain," and that makes sense. Sure, there are plenty of juniper berries in the mix to satisfy the Giniest of Gin-snobs. But then the botanical mix opens up with Iberian pink grapefruit, sweet oranges, lemon zest, lime blossoms, balm herb, clove, and chamomile over a base of more traditional Gin botanicals, including coriander, cassia, angelica, and licorice.

Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
