Fruity gin range grows

Raspberry Gin from Whitley Neill

SCOTTISH raspberries have been used in one of two new fruit gins from Whitley Neill.

The Raspberry Gin has been released alongside a new Blood Orange variant as demand for flavoured gins is described by the spirits producer as “strong”.

The raspberry variant is described as having an “invigorating tartness” complemented by “undertones of liquorice and coriander”, which is said to result in a “well-rounded finish”. The blood orange gin, meanwhile, is said to have a “refreshing, intense orange aroma” with a smooth finish which balances citrus with spice.

The two new Whitley Neill variants, which are part of Halewood Wines & Spirits’ portfolio, have an ABV of 43% and are available in a 70cl format; they join Original Handcrafted Dry Gin, Quince Gin and Rhubarb & Ginger Gin in the range.

Leanne Ware, senior marketing manager for Whitley Neill, said creating flavours that “provide inspiration to the on-trade, particularly the growing cocktail culture, and remain relevant in every season” is key for the brand.
