Discovering the world of Gin with Whitley Neill

Whitley Neill Gin Tasting

Gin has certainly seen a resurgence in the last few years – but the days of the simple Gin & Tonic are long gone. While pink gin was the trend a couple summers ago, it’s all about different flavoured gin at the moment.

The team from Whitley Neill hosted a special Gin Night at The Left Bank on Thursday 11th March 2021 and gave us an insight into their world of Gin. Whitley Neill is an award winning distiller and family with a fascination for crafting spirits since 1762. It’s UK’s No.1 Premium Gin and also a top seller over here in Australia. Their range of traditional English gins are inspired from different tastes around the world.

Guests attending our Gin event were able to enjoy four different gins on the night and even got to take home a little tasting pack. If you missed the event, don’t worry – our bars feature a range of Whitley Neill gins that you can enjoy every day! To have your own little tasting session, we recommend to try out these gins when you join us next time for drinks in the beer garden:

Blood Orange Gin

Inspired by Sicily in Italy, bright and zesty aromas head up a clean, citrus gin. A sweet fruit burst of Sicilian blood oranges offers a smooth crisp taste of the Mediterranean sun. We recommend to order it with Soda water and a dash of cranberry juice and a slice of fresh lemon.

Blackberry Gin

Containing a smooth flavour, with a core of piney juniper, followed by zesty sweet citrus and hints of black pepper. The finish has a little earthiness alongside the warming spice of cassia. We recommend to mix it with Tonic water and a fresh slide of lemon.

Rhubarb & Ginger Gin

Essence of rhubarb adds a tart, crisp edge to a smooth English gin base, while ginger extract warms the palate for a full-bodied finish. We recommend drinking it with Soda water and a fresh orange slice. This flavour is currently our best seller!

Raspberry Gin

The initial and distinct juniper, coriander and liquorice give way to the bright, fresh, vibrant and taste of Scottish raspberries. A perfectly balanced gin with a delicate, fruity profile and a lasting raspberry finish. We recommend to drink it with a mix of soda water and lemonade with slice of fresh lemon.


Whitley Neill Gins are available for $11 at our bars – so come and try it next time you join us for an after-work drink or a Sunday Session with friends.
