I grew up on gin! I have eight generations behind me in this business and I started tasting gin early and loved it. After a brief flirtation in finance, I launched my own gin brand Whitley Neill in 2005, with Marylebone Gin and Berkshire Botanical Gins following. I live in West Berkshire near the 9,000-acre Yattendon Estate, one of the largest Christmas tree growers in the UK, so a Berkshire produced, locally-inspired spirit was something I really wanted to do. The flavours can be found in the surrounding countryside, and our gold medal winning Berkshire Botanical Dry Gin even has a little Norway Spruce in it.
