Bright, zesty aromas head up a warm and comforting body that allows the strength of the alcohol to come through, without dominating the nose. The initial sweet taste quickly gives way to a complex and slightly tart explosion of Sicilian oranges and earthy spice, with an incomparably long finish that’s dominated by the lingering flavour of Sicilian blood orange.
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 Vodka. A handcrafted vodka 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.
