The Oddbins Take

They Say

A passion for discovery runs through all eight generations of the Whitley Neill family tree. So it’s perhaps fitting that while honeymooning in the beautiful Sicilian countryside, Frederick Neill and his new wife fell in love all over again, this time with the vibrant, zesty flavour of Sicilian blood oranges. Using his finely-honed distilling techniques, Freddy strove to create a vodka recipe that would evoke the memories of his Sicilian honeymoon. And it’s this recipe that led to the creation of Whitley Neill Blood Orange Gin. A handcrafted Gin of exceptional quality, that’s bursting with the dynamic citrus flavour of Sicilian blood oranges in every drop, for a smooth, crisp taste of the Mediterranean sun.

We Say

We hold a huge amount of respect for Vito Corleone for it was he who really turned us on to Sicilian produce. Back in the 70s, while we were struggling to sell some particularly good bottles that had been made on the slopes of Etna, Vito came to us and upon being asked what we can do to sell this wine, he delivered a firm slap and told us “you can act like a wine shop!” It was just the tough love we needed.

However, we feel he missed a trick. While he spent so much time in New York engaging in nefarious activities, he could’ve stayed in his hometown and made use of the native blood oranges. For had he turned them into a gin, even close to the quality of Whitley Neill’s which is bright and zesty with a sweet fruit burst of Sicilian blood oranges which brings to mind Mediterranean sun, Vito could’ve dispensed with the racketeering altogether.
