Inspired by Africa and handcrafted in England, Whitley Neill Gin combines an unusual bunch of botanicals, including the carefully selected, rare Cape Gooseberries and Baobob fruit. We love all their flavours, but think Watermelon & Kiwi is especially perfect for the summer!

Its other more traditional botanicals such as juniper, coriander, lemon and orange peel result in a well-balanced, smooth gin.
On Monday we visited Graphic Bar in Soho – for ‘the greatest cocktail tournament in history!’ It was our first visit there and we loved it!
It was the first round of the Gin Off event they are running over the course of the next 6 months, there was a great vibe with a room full of gin enthusiasts. Graphic have a fantastic back bar featuring over 300 different gins but this night was all about 4 very competitive Gin brands: Bols Genever, Whitley Neill, Copper Head and Plymouth Gin.
Each night of the gin off, a bartender from each brand creates a signature inventive cocktail to show off their incredible gin. Each cocktail was then judged by everyone in the bar. They served a fascinating array of cocktails shown below, but a special congratulations to Copper Head for winning round 1 and Whitley Neill for Runner up.
These guys served up ‘I’m not a cupcake’ – gin, sherry and lemon juice featured in this cocktail which was then topped up with Champagne and served in a chocolate cup.
