Not content with becoming the number one premium gin brand in the off trade[1], Whitley Neill is once again displaying its eight generations of artisanal spirits expertise through the launch of a premium Rye Vodka.WN_RYE

Maintaining the Neill family’s prerogative to produce distinctive spirits of exceptional quality using intriguing botanicals, Whitley Neill’s Rye Vodka is triple distilled in copper stills and made almost exclusively of winter rye, which is widely regarded to produce the smoothest tasting vodka.


Whitley Neill’s Rye Vodka has a clean aroma, with subtle hints of black pepper, vanilla and liquorice. The quality of its hero ingredient ensures it has a very smooth and silky finish, rounded off expertly with the perfect hints of sweetness and spice.


In keeping with the rest of the Whitley Neill range’s bold appearance, the Rye Vodka comes in a strikingly elegant grey/opaque bottle that offers great stand out on shelf. Bottled at 43% ABV, this exquisite liquid is available in 70cl format with an RRP of £26. Whitley Neill’s Rye Vodka will initially be available at Morrisons, on Amazon, wholesale channels, online distributors and traditional routes to market.


James Stocker, Marketing Director for Whitley Neill, commented: “As more consumers discover the Whitley Neill family they are increasingly interested in exploring the range. Whilst gin might be their main spirit of choice, our data shows many of them will also drink vodka on occasion, making this the perfect complement to the brand’s award-winning portfolio. Not only does rival any competitor in its price-bracket on taste, it also displays great provenance and authenticity, making it an easy product to invest in.”
