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.

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.

Finish
The finish is light and sweet.

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 with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
