Premium gin brand Whitley Neill has added two new limited edition flavours to its portfolio – Brazilian Lime and Strawberry & Black Pepper.
The Brazilian Lime Gin was created to tap into the trend for citrus-flavoured gins and citrus-based cocktails, whilst also taking inspiration from creator Johnny Neill’s travelling experiences in South America.
It “zings with zesty, freshly peeled limes balanced by an herbaceous punch of freshly picked juniper – finished with earthy sweet undertones of liquorice”.
Whitley Neill’s Brazilian Lime Gin is suggested enjoyed in Caipirinhas, Gimlets or simply with tonic and a wedge of lime.
The second release, Strawberry & Black Pepper, takes its inspiration from a bit closer to home, from when Johnny and his family grew strawberries in their kitchen garden in Devon.
It boasts an “indulgent, bold and fruity scent of freshly picked Devon strawberries with a subtle crack of black peppercorns – finished with a sumptuous, summery strawberry jam kick”.
The gin can be served in cocktails or with light tonic, chopped strawberries and basil leaves to garnish.
Kelly Coughlan, manager for white spirits at Halewood Wines & Spirits, said: “The popularity of flavoured gin is showing no sign of slowing down, driven in part by lockdown, with people becoming generally more experimental with new flavours and formats.
“Our Whitley Neill flavoured gin variants have always appealed to those more experimental tastes, and these two new flavours are no exception – bringing beautifully balanced, fruity flavours which take inspiration from around the world.
“Perfect for creating simple at home serves or more complex cocktails, these limited edition releases are guaranteed to be a big hit with Whitley Neill fans and those who are looking to try something a bit different this summer.”
Available to order for the on-trade and off-trade now, both bottles feature Whitley Neill’s limited edition white bottle design and boast an ABV of 43%.
