SPONSORED: 3 African inspired ways to enjoy Whitley Neill Gin

Whitley Neill Gins highlight how heritage and local flavours can create cocktail experiences to savour. Try these easy cocktails with their original, protea and hibiscus, and aloe and cucumber flavoured gins.


Two Worlds, Crafted Together, Inspired by Africa

Whitley Neill is currently the UK number one selling premium gin. They’ve created a range that skilfully blends and balances rare African botanicals and unusual aromatics.

Their handcrafted gins highlight how English heritage and South African flavours pair well together. The flavours featured here are their original, as well as the locally exclusive protea and hibiscus, and the award-winning aloe and cucumber variants.

They offer other equally exciting variants such as blackberry, blood orange, and the soon-to-be launched rhubarb and ginger flavour.

Whitley Neill brings together eight generations of expertise in a gin perfect for those who love an international feel but crave a local taste.

Tom Collins

The Original Dry Gin is a balanced and distinctive gin that blends classic gin botanicals with aromatic Cape gooseberries and baobab fruit. To make this classic Tom Collins, add 50ml Whitley Neill Original Dry Gin, 20ml lemon juice, and 15ml sugar syrup to a highball glass with ice and top up with Hall & Bramley Indian tonic. Garnish with a lemon wedge.

Floral Orchid

Protea and hibiscus flavours combine to bring a distinctive floral note to create a smooth gin with a remarkable taste. Combine 50ml Whitley Neill Protea & Hibiscus Gin, 15ml Elderflower cordial, 20ml cranberry juice, and 20ml lemon juice. Top up with Hall & Bramley pink tonic and add a sprig of thyme to garnish.

Aloe Sunset

The Aloe & Cucumber variant was recently awarded the top flavoured gin at the Old Mutual Trophy Spirits Show 2020. To make an Aloe Sunset, mix 50ml Whitley Neill Aloe & Cucumber Gin, 20ml lime juice, and 20ml litchi juice. Top up with Hall & Bramley Indian or pink tonic and garnish with a grapefruit wedge and some fresh mint.

Whitley Neill Gin supports responsible drinking and is a proud member of Aware.org.za. Not for persons under 18.
