Whitley Neill Blood Orange Gin

Print

Bright, zesty aromas head up a clean, citrus Gin. A sweet fruit burst of Sicilian Blood Oranges offers a smooth crisp taste of the Mediterranean sun.

A passion for discovery runs through all eight generations of the Whitley Neill family tree.

So it’s perhaps fitting that while honeymooning in the beautiful Sicilian countryside, Frederick Neill and his new wife fell in love all over again, this time with the vibrant, zesty flavour of Sicilian blood oranges.

Using his finely-honed distilling skills Freddy strove to create a gin recipe that would evoke the memories of his Sicilian honeymoon. And it’s this recipe that lead to the creation of Whitley Neill Blood Orange Gin, developed with mixologist and bartenders in mind, and is a great base for classics such as Negroni, Gimlets and Sours.
