Whitley Neill Rhubarb & Ginger Gin
雖然約翰尼·尼爾 (Johnny Neill) 屢獲殊榮的杜松子酒的大部分靈感來自他祖先在國外的無畏功績，但這款 Rhubarb & Ginger 杜松子酒卻讓人想起離家更近的美好回憶。戰後，現在在達斯伯里附近的英格蘭鄉村定居的惠特利家族在他們的花園中種植了令人興奮的風味，為餐桌以及他們對新杜松子酒的實驗提供了靈感。約翰尼最新推出的杜松子酒喚起了童年時在農場探望祖父母的回憶，他選用了惠特利家族最愛的大黃，並加入了新鮮的生薑。 品酒筆記：大黃的精華為光滑的英式杜松子酒添加了酸脆的邊緣，而生薑提取物則溫暖了味蕾，帶來濃郁的餘味。
Whilst most of Johnny Neill’s inspiration for his award-winning Gins comes from his ancestor’s intrepid exploits abroad, this Rhubarb & Ginger Gin harks from fond memories made slightly closer to home. Post-war, the Whitley Family, now settled into rural England near Daresbury, cultivated their garden with thrilling flavours, serving as inspiration for both the table and indeed their experimentation with new Gins. Johnny’s latest Gin evokes childhood memories of visiting his grandparents on their farm by taking a firm Whitley family favourite in rhubarb and placed a warm twist on this with the addition of fresh ginger.
Tasting note: The essence of rhubarb adds a tart crisp edge to a smooth English gin base whilst the ginger extract warms the palate for a full-bodied finish.
