    Whitley Neill launches limited edition gin bottle for coronation

    Distiller Whitley Neill has launched a limited edition bottle of its Connoisseur’s Cut London Dry Gin to commemorate the Coronation of King Charles III.

    Whitley Neill Connoisseur’s Cut Gin is a classic London Dry expression which is distilled at The City of London Distillery, the first and only gin distillery in the heart of London for over 200 years. It is cut at 47 per cent, letting the rich juniper and citrus notes shine through. The limited edition bottle boasts a striking, patriotic red, white and blue colour scheme, with the official coronation emblem on the seal of the lid.

    To mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, the newest still at the City of London was named Elizabeth after the late Queen. It is on this still that all Whitley Neill’s London Dry Gins are made, including the Connoisseur’s Cut Gin in this special release.

    “With an extra Bank Holiday and a weekend full of celebrations, the Coronation will present a huge sales opportunity for retailers and licensees this May,” said Rachel Adams, global marketing director, Halewood Artisanal Spirits. “With its rich London heritage and quality London Dry gin distilling credentials, Whitley Neill is perfectly positioned to help maximise this opportunity with the launch of this striking Limited Edition Coronation Gin offering. We’ve also created a range of supporting serve suggestions for those looking to celebrate the occasion with an extra special royal cocktail.”

    Whitley Neill Connoisseur’s Cut Coronation Gin Edition is available to order now. RRP £30. ABV 47 per cent.
