Unite Flavour & Heritage with Whitley Neill Gin

Words: Crush

Whitley Neill Blackberry Gin is a luscious and vibrant handcrafted gin inspired by English hedgerows laden with blackberries in late summer. Its intensely fruity taste and general versatility has made this particular variant a firm local favourite since its launch late last year. The featured Whitley Neill Gin variant – in addition to two others – has also been awarded Gold at this year’s SA Women’s Wine & Spirit Awards which took place early in October 2021.
