Inspired by England, lusciously red and juicy strawberries offer a sweetness in this gin that’s balanced out by a hint of cracked black pepper. While most of Johnny Neill’s inspiration for his award winning gins comes from his ancestors’ intrepid travel exploits abroad, this Strawberry & Black Pepper Gin harks from fond memories made slightly closer to home. The new Whitley Neill Strawberry and Black Pepper Gin takes its influences from fond memories going back to a time when Johnny and his family grew the sweetest and juiciest of strawberries in their kitchen garden farm in a little place called Rockbeare in Devon, England. It was then they discovered a hint of black pepper allows the inherent sweetness of the strawberry to shine through stronger than ever. This combination of flavours works beautifully as a partnership with the Original botanicals in Whitley Neill Gin.
Nose: Indulgent, aromatic and bold fruity scent of freshly picked Devon summer strawberries, complimented by a subtle crack of black peppercorns.
Palate: Notes of flavour packed strawberry jam balanced by piney juniper berries and warming spices of cassia bark and coriander.
Finish: Sharp peppery notes lead a scrumptious strawberry compote finish that is the true taste of British summertime.
