Is This The World's Best Martini?

Internationally renowned bartender, Alessandro Palazzi at London’s prestigious martini-haven, Dukes Bar, created a gin martini recipe this week that he believes is the world’s best.

Revealed at an exclusive VIP event at Dukes Bar - within Dukes Hotel - this week, Alessandro explains why hand-crafted Whitley Neill is the perfect base for the best gin martini.

“Whitley Neill Gin boasts an enigmatic taste due to its skillful blend of rare African botanicals, including cape gooseberry and baobab.”

Whitley Neill Gin’s rich juniper, citrus and exotic spices combine with a citrusy sweet peppery nose and a distinctive floral aroma.

Alessandro continues: “It’s the unique combination of spices that allow the soft, smooth taste, which makes Whitley Neill unrivalled as a martini base.”

Swirl the Vermouth around a frozen martini glass, add the vermouth and carefully twist the lemon zest to release the lemon oil into the drink. Add the lemon twist.

Cementing its world-class status, Whitley Neill Gin has won many awards including World’s Best Gin at the International Wines and Spirits Awards, Gold Medal in the Super Premium Category at this year’s International Spirits Challenge and Gin Master in the Super Premium Category in this year’s Drinks Business Gin Masters Competition.

Super-premium, Whitley Neill Gin is derived from eight generations of brewing and distilling brought down through Johnny Neill’s family since 1762.

Whitley Neill Gin is available in Harrods, Harvey Nichols and other premium retailers priced £22.19. Whitley Neill Gin is also available in some premium bars.
