Whitley Neill Apple & Red Berries Gin: A Burst of Orchard Freshness

Calling all gin enthusiasts with a penchant for fruity flavours! Whitley Neill Apple & Red Berries Gin is a delightful addition to any home bar, offering a vibrant explosion of orchard and berry notes. This gin expertly balances the crispness of red and green apples with the sweet juiciness of Scottish raspberries, black cherries, and strawberries, creating a complex yet refreshing spirit.

On the Nose:

The first impression is undeniably fruity. A wave of crisp green apple takes centre stage, reminiscent of freshly cut Granny Smiths. This is quickly followed by a medley of sweet red berries. Imagine a summer hedgerow bursting with ripe raspberries, black cherries, and a hint of juicy strawberries. Underlying the fruitiness is a subtle hint of juniper, the classic gin botanical that provides a touch of warmth and herbaceousness.

On the Palate:

The initial burst of flavour mirrors the nose, with a vibrant rush of tart green apple and sweet red berries. The apple takes the lead, offering a refreshingly tart profile that is balanced beautifully by the sweetness of the berries. The raspberries add a touch of tanginess, while the black cherries provide a deeper, richer note. As the gin settles on the palate, the juniper emerges more prominently, offering a subtle peppery warmth and a hint of pine. The overall taste is wonderfully balanced, with the sweetness of the berries complementing the tartness of the apple and the juniper providing a grounding warmth.

The Finish:

The finish of Whitley Neill Apple & Red Berries Gin is crisp and clean. The tartness of the apple lingers, leaving a refreshing sensation on the tongue. Hints of the berries and juniper fade gently, leaving a pleasant warmth that lingers for a moment.

Serving Suggestions:

This versatile gin shines in a variety of cocktails. For a refreshingly simple serve, try a Whitley Neill Apple & Red Berries Gin and Tonic. Fill a highball glass with ice, add 50ml of gin, top with a premium tonic water, and garnish with a slice of red apple or a handful of fresh berries.

For a more complex cocktail, experiment with a Berry Bramble. Muddle a handful of fresh blackberries and raspberries in a shaker. Add 50ml of Whitley Neill Apple & Red Berries Gin, 25ml of fresh lemon juice, and 20ml of simple syrup. Shake well with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a fresh blackberry.

Food Pairings:

The fruity profile of Whitley Neill Apple & Red Berries Gin makes it a perfect partner for a variety of dishes. Here are some suggestions to elevate your next culinary experience:

  • Appetisers: Pair this gin with light and refreshing starters. Consider a platter of fresh cheeses, cured meats, and seasonal fruits. The creamy cheeses will complement the sweetness of the berries, while the cured meats will stand up to the juniper's warmth. The fresh fruits will echo the gin's apple and berry notes.
  • Salads: Lighter salads with a touch of sweetness are a great match. A goat cheese salad with candied walnuts and a balsamic vinaigrette will create a symphony of flavours. The sweetness of the candied walnuts and the tanginess of the vinaigrette will complement the gin beautifully.
  • Main Courses: For the main course, consider grilled pork or chicken with a fruit-based glaze. The sweetness of the glaze will mirror the berries in the gin, while the smoky notes from grilling will pair well with the juniper.
  • Desserts: This gin is a natural partner for fruit-based desserts. Pair it with a classic apple pie, a summer berry crumble, or a decadent chocolate and raspberry torte. The sweetness of the desserts will be accentuated by the gin's fruity notes, creating a truly satisfying conclusion to your meal.
