A new take on an old classic
If your father is next-level awesome, make sure to source him a next-level gift that befits his standing with Whitley Neill handcrafted gin. Whitley Neill knows what’s up when it comes to gin. With the founder, Johnny Neill, a direct descendant of a long line of distillers, he’s the eighth generation of the Greenall-Whitley family, whose gin heritage dates back to 1762. Wanting to write his own entry in the family history book, Neill worked on a signature blend of gin: an homage to his British distilling heritage and a tribute to the beauty and nature of his wife’s African homeland. The result? Whitley Neill, a balanced yet distinctive gin handcrafted in England.
Distilled near Birmingham, this gin is made from a 100 per cent grain spirit that is steeped with botanicals before being distilled in a 100-year-old antique copper pot called “Constance”. Working with traditional botanicals such as juniper and orange peel
along with African influences such as Cape gooseberries and baobab fruit, this innovative blend is packed full of unique flavour as well as a rich history. It’s a fail safe gift for gin lovers who claim to have tried them all, but are happy to be proved wrong from time to time. Whitley Neill has since released other experimental gins such as parma violet, blood orange, lemongrass and ginger and protea and hibiscus to name a few. But we’re betting on the Dry Gin Original bottle for you to gift this Father’s Day. Captured in a sophisticated matt black bottle with gold detailing, Whitley Neill takes pride of place in any drinks cabinet.
Its perfect serve? With classic Indian tonic and a twist of lime. It’s simple but seriously effective, allowing the gin’s subtle sweetness to shine through and steal the show. Your father will thank you for adding this to his arsenal. In fact, the least he could do is rustle you up a G&T.
Get ready to meet the mother (or father) of all coffee table books.

Offering up to 18 hours of wireless play time with advanced ANC, proximity sensors, uber soft lambskin cushion wraps and a signature RIMOWA case to keep them safe when not in use, this the gift that gives dad both style and substance.
