J.J. Whitley Range

Quintessentially British Gins & Vodkas

The Whitley and Neill families have been involved in the creation of fine spirits since 1762, using the very best ingredients from around the world.

The family were well-known for cultivating their gardens and searching the hedgerows for thrilling new flavours, indigenous to the countryside.

Inspired by the glorious English countryside, JJ Whitley’s range includes London Dry Gin, Elderflower Gin, Nettle Gin and Violet Gin, along with Potato Vodka, and Rhubarb Vodka.

JJ.Whitley Pink Cherry Gin bottle

Pink Cherry Gin

ABV: 38.6% Vol: 70cl

J.J. Whitley Pink Cherry Gin bursts with flavour and joins the JJ Whitley family that is inspired by flavours from the British countryside. A beautifully versatile gin that makes for a delicious twist on a G&T or cocktail.

Tasting notes

A sugary stone fruit and fresh orange almonds aroma with an initial sweetness leading into marzipan, sour cherry and juniper on the palate. The finish is smooth with cherry, almond and a little lingering spice.

JJ.Whitley Elderflower Gin bottle

Elderflower Gin

ABV: 38.6% Vol: 70cl

J.J. Whitley spent much of his childhood in old Georgian and Victorian vicarages, latterly in Daresbury - the birthplace of Lewis Carroll. These vicarages would have had expansive kitchen gardens and natural hedgerows in which the young J.J. would have played. As he grew older, the English countryside became the natural source of key ingredients for tantalising recipes like this Elderflower Gin, made with real elderflower extract.

Tasting notes

Candied sweetness, dominated by the unmistakeable punch of elderflower with flicks of grassiness, orange blossom and honey.

JJ.Whitley Nettle Gin bottle

Nettle Gin

ABV: 38.6% Vol: 70cl

As a child, J.J. Whitley spent much of his time in the English countryside with his family, searching the hedgerows for exciting new flavours to use in their locally-produced spirits. In early spring, long before the fruits of summer began to appear, nettles would already be growing in abundance. Once cooked to remove the ‘sting’ they produce a delicious, irrefutably ‘green’ flavour, which is what gives J.J. Whitley Nettle Gin its distinctive, zingy taste.

Tasting notes

Heavy herbaceous aromas open out into a fresh, light, zingy kick, bound together with a gentle sweetness. As the freshness of nettle disperses, the palate is left with an unmistakeable and somewhat nostalgic finish of a classic gin.

JJ.Whitley Rhubarb Vodka bottle

Rhubarb Vodka

ABV: 38.6% Vol: 70cl

The Whitley family were well-known for culitvating their gardens and searching the hedgerows for thrilling new flavours, indigenous to the countryside. As a child, J.J. Whitley would have spent much of his time in the gardens, playing and helping the family harvest ingredients like home-grown seasonal rhubarb, which would be used for cooking, baking, and distilling spirits, like this Rhubarb Vodka, made with natural rhubarb flavouring.

Tasting notes

Sweet rhubarb dominates the nose and coats the palate with a balance of sweetness, with hints of fresh vegetables and basil.

JJ.Whitley Pototo Vodka bottle

Potato Vodka

ABV: 38.6% Vol: 70cl

As a child, J.J. Whitley would have spent much of his time playing in the expansive gardens and natural hedgerows of his vicarage homes. As he grew older, the home-grown fruit and vegetables of the British garden became the staple of his kitchen table, preserving pots, and later, his gin and vodka recipes, like this Potato Vodka, made with 100% natural potatoes.

Tasting notes

An almost dairy-like creaminess, highlighted by subtle, yet distinctive notes of white grape and the lingering crunch of green apple.
