Halewood Wines & Spirits is tapping into UK gin trends with the launch of two new flavours for its Whitley Neill brand.

Blood Orange Gin and Raspberry Gin join the three other gins in the Whitley Neill portfolio, Handcrafted Dry, Quince and Rhubarb & Ginger. Halewood launched a Whitley Neill vodka, Blood Orange Vodka, in 2016.

An ongoing UK gin boom looks set to continue in 2018 after industry figures showed increased sales over Christmas. According to IRI data, consumers in the country spent GBP36m on gin in the week before Christmas, a 45% increase on the same period in 2016.

Meanwhile, the Wine and Spirit Trade Association said last month that volumes for the spirit in the 12 months to 9 September were up by almost one-fifth.
