Gin of the Month

Thursday, May 16th, 2019

A fantastic new addition to the J.J. Whitley family, their Pink Cherry Gin inspired by the British countryside. This Gin is bursting with flavours, with notes of fresh cherries and marzipan but with sour cherry and juniper on the palate. It has a smooth finish with a little lingering spice. A similar taste to a Cherry Bakewell.

For the perfect serve, fill a glass with ice cubes and add J.J. Whitely Cherry Gin. Top this with a plain tonic water or lemonade if you prefer. Garnish with cherries.

Alternatively, use this Gin to make a slightly spicy martini. Simply add ice cubes to a glass, combine the J.J. Whitley Pink Cherry Gin and Vermouth, stir & strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with some red berries. It is the perfect summer drink to enjoy!

Get a free J.J Whitley glass with every bottle purchased from The Hollies this June.
