Berkshire Botanical, the artisan spirits brand from Whitley Neill creator, Johnny Neill, has announced the launch of its second quintessentially British flavoured Gin – Rhubarb & Raspberry.

Just like the original Berkshire Botanical Dry Gin, the new expression is made on the Yattendon Estate in West Berkshire, where it has been distilled with the finest rhubarb and raspberries. It offers hints of fresh pine and fruity raspberry on the nose, with tart rhubarb and peppery citrus spice on the palate – all with an elegant fruity citrus finish. It provides a perfect accompaniment to quality tonic or bubbles.

The new label design features imagery of rhubarb, berries and botanicals, alongside a dapperly dressed hare, which joins the fox and the badger and continues the brand theme of drawing inspiration from the flora and fauna of the estate.

Johnny Neill, creator and owner of Berkshire Botanical comments; “We know that provenance and quality are increasingly important for consumers, so as a local, British brand taking inspiration from the Yattendon Estate and surrounding Berkshire countryside, we’re perfectly positioned to deliver on this trend, both with our existing products and our new Rhubarb & Raspberry variant”.

“Furthermore, in order to help maintain this beautiful local area that we have taken much of our inspiration from, we have also partnered with the Berks , Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust, providing investment for local conservation projects and wildlife protection – a partnership we’re very excited to develop over the coming years”.

The new Berkshire Botanical Rhubarb & Raspberry Gin has a 40.3% ABV and an RSP of £20 for a 50cl bottle. It will be available in Booths (15th August) and selected Tesco stores from 31st August. It joins Berkshire Botanical Dry Gin and the new Dandelion & Burdock Gin to complete the range.
