Finished with herbaceous piney juniper notes, complemented by summer citrus. While traditional gin is a timeless classic, the rise in colourful flavoured gins bursting with fun and alternative tastes is a refreshing trend, perfect for the upcoming summer.

J.J Whitley spent much of his childhood in old Georgian and Victorian vicarages, latterly in Daresbury – the birthplace of Lewis Carroll. These vicarages would have had expansive kitchen gardens and natural hedgerows in which the young J.J would have played. As he grew older, the English countryside became the natural source of key ingredients for tantalising recipes like this Elderflower Gin, made with real elderflower extract. The serve recommends adding the 50ml of cherry gin to the glass, already filled with the ice, topping this up with the tonic before adding the cherry syrup and stirring this all in thoroughly. After this, garnish with the 2 cherries. J.J Whitley Blood Orange Gin is delightfully vibrant & inspired by family expeditions abroad to Sicily, where they would roam the countryside and orange groves under the beating Mediterranean sun.
Everything started in 1762 when Thomas Greenall set up the first distillery. Since the 1800s, Constance the copper still has seen more botanicals and juniper berries than David Attenborough has seen in his lifetime of adventures. Cherry gin often refers to a type of flavoured gin with the dominant taste being (that’s right, you guessed it!) cherry. J.J Whitley Bramble gin delivers a delicious burst of sweetened berries with subtle tart citrus flavours finishing with subtle mulled spice and pepper.

For example, a pint of cider can amount to 216 calories, while a 175ml glass of wine can come to 159. Johnny grew up in a family which lived and breathed Gin for as long as he can remember. His fascination for this juniper based spirit was spurred on by his Grandmother, the owner of Greenall’s at the time. She guided him in his journey to understand how different botanicals affect the taste of Gin and fostered his ambition to produce his own blend later in life. His Father was a Director of the Greenall’s distillery and brewery, so he had the opportunity to observe and learn the incredibly valuable traditional methods he used to produce Whitley Neill Gin.
