Whitley Neill launches two flavoured gins
Halewood Artisanal Spirits has added two flavoured gins, Pineapple and Peach, to its Whitley Neill portfolio.
The two new bottlings both clock in at 43% ABV.
James Stocker, marketing director, Halewood Artisanal Spirits, commented: “Tropical flavours are continuing to perform well in the spirits category, with our Whitley Neill Watermelon and Kiwi, and Mango and Lime gins that we launched last summer proving to be some of our fastest-selling flavours.
“Our new Pineapple and Peach gins continue to tap into this trend for tropical flavour combinations with brilliant, versatile liquids which we’re confident will prove extremely popular with consumers as we approach the spring/summer months.”
The Whitley Neill Pineapple Gin has been inspired by founder Johnny Neill’s travels to the Americas, containing the sweetness of Costa Rican pineapples. The flavoured gin is recommended served with tonic, lemonade or elderflower, or used as the base for cocktails such as a Piña Colada or French Martini.
The Peach gin takes inspiration from Neill’s travels to South Africa, boasting tropical and citrus notes, and rounding off with peppery juniper. The liquid is suggested served with a simple mixer, or within a Peach Bellini.
Both 700ml gins can each be purchased from UK supermarkets Tesco and Morrisons, or wholesale operator Booker for RRP £26 (US$33.83).
In March, Halewood launched The Grand Cocktail Competition, which will task UK bartenders with creating their own products to be mixed in cocktails for the chance to win £1,000 (US$1,313).
Plus, the brand recently moved production of its JJ Whitley vodka back to England, two years after it opened a multi-million-pound distillery for the brand in Russia.
