It takes 20 years for the African Baobab tree to bear fruit. So it’s fitting that the fruit’s pulp became the signature botanical of Whitley Neill Handcrafted dry Gin. This exceptional drink was created by Johnny Neill, a direct descendant of a long line of distillers, whose heritage stretches back as far as the Baobab trees found in Africa today.
Inspired by his family’s sense of adventure, Johnny strove to create his own signature blend of Gin: a tribute to his English distilling heritage, and a homage to the enigmatic beauty of his wife’s African homeland. The result is Whitley Neill Handcrafted dry Gin; a balanced, distinctive Gin that blends classic Gin botanicals with exotic African botanicals to create a liquid with a flavour as unique as its heritage.
The iconic Baobob tree (the “Tree of Life” in Africa) pictured on the bottle provides fruits giving a distinctive citrus note which is balanced beautifully with another African fruit; the Cape Gooseberry. These work in harmony with the remaining 7 botanicals that make up Whitley Neill Gin.
