Whitley Neill’s has pushed the boundaries again, infusing their award-winning Gin with rhubarb and ginger.

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.

Known for wild experimentation in Gin botanicals, Whitley Neill has developed a dozen unique combinations, each with its own distinct characteristics. Whitley Neill Rhubarb & Ginger Handcrafted Gin builds upon their rock-solid Gin foundation botanicals of juniper, coriander, cassia, orris root, angelica, liquorice, orange, lemon. Then, they add the flourish — in this case that means rhubarb and ginger for a spicy-tart accent. To our taste, it feels like a non-sweet Sloe Gin with a bit of ginger heat.

Smartass Corner:
Rhubarb is one of the most interesting of plants. It’s technically a vegetable that is shaped like celery. But it is most often associated with a tart, crisp flavor like a cross between lemon grass and strawberries.

Corner
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.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Tinted Clear

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The fragrance reminds us of rhubarb pie in a pine box with a handful of freshly picked herbs.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
On the palate the rhubarb notes mingle with the rest of the botanicals to deliver a tart apple essence with orange zest, juniper, and a light hit of ginger spice.

Finish
The finish is tart and a bit dry.

Grainger
Grainger,
Sickly sweet and overpowering
 
Jon
Jon,
I'm a huge gin afficianado and a while back I bought a bottle of rhubarb infused gin in London which was epically phenomenal and have been looking for something similar ever since. This seemed like the best bet so far so I took the plunge. It's only ok, but has a cloying sweetness that reminds me of artificial sweetener that is somewhat off-putting. Not horrible, but can't get fully behind it and certainy doesn't match up to my lifty ideals.

Cynthia,
I never had tried Gin, due to the smell of pineneedles which was over powering. This Gin however, does not overwhelm, no hint of pineneedles, only a sweet, fruity, peppery, and smooth taste. It is one of my new favorites in our home bar. Love it.

Ben,
The flavors are delicious as they are unique, but this gin is surprisingly sweet. Almost cloyingly so.

Mark,
Love the flavor of this gin...I use it in a variation on a martini where I add in a splash of white absinthe...just exquisite
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Really too sweet. It starts out tasting like cotton candy you can taste the ginger and as it finishes it’s all sugar and can not taste anything else
