Whitley Neill Gin is an award winning, hand crafted premium London Dry gin. The inspiration of the gin comes from the vivid beauty & mystery of Africa. It is distilled in small batches by Johnny Neill, a direct descendant of Thomas Greenall & the last in a long line of distillers. It is produced in small batches in an antique copper pot still,[1] and contains two African botanicals — Baobab Fruit and Cape Gooseberries as well as coriander seeds, sweet lemon, sweet orange, angelica root, cassia bark, florentine iris and juniper berries.

Most recently, Whitley Neill has won a gold medal at the San Francisco Spirits Competition 2014 & was referenced in The Telegraph Online as one of the five best gins to buy.[2]

The gin, distilled near Birmingham, England and is sold in a distinctive matte black bottle with a stylised baobab tree on as its logo. It was recently redesigned in 2013.
