This gin has a distinctive aroma of Turkish quince, and a long, fruity finish
Whitley Neill Quince Gin
With a taste for adventure and discovery running through all eight generations of the Whitley Neill family tree it should come as no surprise that at the turn of the century, Frederick Neill found himself on a voyage through Persia. Here he discovered a whole range of exotic spices, herbs and fruit. These led to new inspirations to be added to the family gin collection.
Discovering quince in the ancient mountains of the region, inspiration was found. Combining the tang of Turkish quince with a select mix of Persian herbs and spices makes Whitley Neill's Quince Gin something unique and quite special.
Within this gin you are welcomed with the aroma of fresh stone fruits. These are followed shortly after with a gentle hints of juniper and citrus zest.
Within the mouth, the distinctive flavour of quince dominates the palate - but this develops and introduced the sweetness of apricots and peaches. The finish is long, and exceptionally fruity - opening into orange blossom and zesty grapefruits. Truly a taste of Persia!
