This unusual gin is tinged with the herby sting of nettle alongside the burst of oily juniper which takes over the aroma. Nettle makes the taste, with flavours like basil and coriander creeping in for a herbal, grassy sensation. Citrus makes an appearance, the finish a little sweet. A complex and intriguing gin. - Learn more about JJ Whitley
J.J. Whitley was a traditional sort of fellow and son of a Rector who grew up in Vicarages in Hereford and then in Daresbury where he would play in Walton Hall Gardens, one of the locations of inspiration for his singularly crafted gin and vodkas.
The Whitley’s remained at home in rural England, cultivating their gardens and searching the hedgerows for thrilling new flavours indigenous to the countryside around Daresbury – the birthplace of Lewis Carroll. Their locally produced spirits were the talk of the surrounding villages and aroused huge interest.
Today these passions for exploring and discovering exciting flavours in the British countryside are evident in the truly wonderful family of premium gins and vodkas offering drinkers a taste of the unexpected.View the JJ Whitley page
