Gin in the Spotlight - February 2019: Whitley Neil Quince
Posted 1st February 2019
A handcrafted gin of exceptional quality, with a flavour that’s as rich as its ancestry. Frederick Neill found himself on a voyage through Persia, where he discovered a range of exotic fruit, herbs and spices. While there, he was surprised to discover quince fruits growing in the ancient mountains. And it’s the unmistakable sweet tang of Turkish quince, blended with a heady mix of Persian herbs and spices that gives Whitley Neill Quince Gin its distinctive, alluring taste.
NOSE: Amongst stone fruits salvo, you get citrus zest, apricot yoghurt and ripe nectarines. There’s earthy juniper, a hint of leather and a touch of exotic spice.
PALATE: A very sweet, quite syrupy texture that reveals notes of juicy citrus, warming ginger, hints of juniper and unmistakable quince. There’s plenty of fleshy pear and peach in there too.
FINISH: A note of thick-cut Seville orange marmalade lingers with a little zesty grapefruit.
WE SAY: All the sweetness you’d hope for this Valentine’s day. Try it in our irresistible creamy cocktail ‘The Showstopper’…you’re bound to fall in love!
