Whilst most of Johnny Neill’s inspiration for his award-winning Gins comes from his ancestors intrepid exploits abroad, this Rhubarb & Ginger Gin harks from fond memories made slightly closer to home. Post-war, the Whitley Family, now settled into rural England near Daresbury, cultivated their garden with thrilling flavours, serving as inspiration for both the table and indeed their experimentation with new Gins. Johnny’s’ latest Gin evokes childhood memories of visiting his grandparents on their farm by taking a firm Whitley family favourite in rhubarb and placed a warm twist on this with the addition of fresh ginger.
Inspired by the glory of English country gardens, the essence of rhubarb adds a tart crisp edge to the smooth English Gin base,
whilst the ginger extract warms the palate for a full bodied finish.
Botanicals: Juniper, lemon & orange peel, orris bark, angelica root, coriander seeds, rhubarb essence along with ginger extract.
