Whitley Neill’s solid foundation Gin infused with quince for a powerfully fruit-forward Spirit.

John James Whitley Neill comes from a family of eight generations of distillers, and he is 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.

All Whitley Neill Spirits are distilled in a single, 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 boasts no fewer than twelve specialty Gins. Building upon their solid foundation Gin formula, Whitley Neill Quince Handcrafted Gin is infused with juniper, coriander, cassia, orris root, angelica, liquorice, orange, lemon and — of course — Turkish quince. And while this is a perfectly satisfying sipper, at 43% ABV we think it shines in a G&T and brings new dimensions to Martinis and the French 75 cocktail.

Smartass Corner:
The quince is the only member of the genus Cydonia. There is simply nothing else like it. But it is second cousin to apples and pears. But unlike its cousins, it can take the heat and was grown for its fruit from antiquity in the fertile crescent from the headwaters of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers and into ancient Judea.

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.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Ruddy Pale

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The fragrance jumps with fruits from tangerine zest and apricot curd to grilled apple and pine.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Well balanced but sweeter than most Gins, the palate reveals notes of ginger, mixed citrus fruits, plenty of quince, juniper, and ripe pear.

The finish is light and sweet.
Ratings & Reviews
Not a fan...Ironically, I love their rhubarb and ginger gin, but this one is nearly undrinkable. Maybe quince is just not for me, but I found this to be reminiscent of sour mix that's been left out of the fridge for too long.
If you are a true lover of gin, this is not for you. Shame on Flaviar for not describing very accurately what this actually is. They have finally done to gin what they did to vodka - flavored it with something overly sweet and unnatural. This should be reserved for the twenty-somethings who just want to drink something cloyingly sweet because they haven’t developed a taste for anything better than an apple martini. We will be giving this bottle away.
Sweet and delicious. Good on the rocks or mixed with a combo of tonic/soda to balance the sweetness.
