Gins from the English countryside

Berkshire Botanical Gins are based around the stunning 9,000 acre Yattendon Estate in West Berkshire. We love their dry gin and the Dandelion and Burdock flavour will take you straight to the English countryside (and bring back memories of childhood)…

The Story

Founder of Berkshire Botanical is Johnny Neill who has been making gin for quite a while! He originally founded the Whitley Neill Gin brand in 2005 and more recently Marylebone Gin.

 

The inspiration behind Berkshire Botanical Gin was the countryside in the area where Johnny lives. Moving out of London, Johnny looked at Yattendon and absolutely fell in love with the area. They moved to Frilsham on the Yattendon Estate initially and have been in the area ever since.

 

Berkshire Botanical is based around the stunning 9,000 acre Yattendon Estate in West Berkshire. They are inspired by botanicals growing on the Estate, and the gin is distilled in pot still, Harry, who resides in the wonderful The Royal Oak Pub & Hotel right in the heart of Yattendon.

 

Berkshire Botanical focus on nature around the Yattendon estate and the animals that adorn their bottles. They are in partnership with the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust to protect local wildlife.
