J.J. Whitley Violet Gin Bottling Note

Violet has become a particularly popular flavour within the world of gin, and J.J. Whitley have wasted no time joining in on the fun by launching their very own Violet Gin! The eponymous floral element is combined with a selection of eight additional botanicals along the lines of juniper, coriander, liquorice and angelica, and it boasts a pleasing pink hue.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Citrus blossom blends well with bright violet sweetness, bolstered by soft juniper and a hint of cassia spiciness.

J.J. Whitley Violet Gin Reviews


its very different,cant quite decide if i like it or not but drinking it straight,and what to put with it is a mystery

30th July 2020

Love it!

I love this! I prefer infused gins and when I saw this on offer thought I would try. I really can taste the violets. Will be buying again.

Whitley’s violet gin

I absolutely love it! Brought a bottle back to the US where infused gin is nowhere to be found and I am not a fan of infused vodka which is big in the US.

Strong but OK with right mixer.

Like the flavour but it's really overpowering. Started by using half the amount of gin I normally have and sloshing a little more tonic in. However have since found it goes well with bitter lemon, which tones it down a little. Probably won't buy a refill myself but wouldn't be complaining if given as a gift.

Below the line

This gin has the bouquet and taste of a 1950s’ plimsoll - fine if you are into sweet rubber and canvas, but if you are into gin, avoid.

I will buy the other brand in future

Very disappointed, my son gave me a sip of his by another company and it was delicious but saw this one and bought it thinking it was a better brand,
I bought it as a Xmas treat for myself and was really looking forward to it, but the only taste it has is of gin, it has no taste at all of violet,I'm really disappointed

Amazing flavour. I was suprised that I enjoyed it on the rocks.
Would love some suggestions and recipes.

Fab- u -lous

Delicious over ice. Being a lover of Parma violet sweets this is the alcoholic equivalent, fabulous. Any recipes or serving suggestions please?

Poor quality and horrible tasting.

This is terrible! A nasty chemical after taste and hardly tastes of violet. The other brands far exceed this. Absolutely disgusting and the after taste is horrible

Pisher than Pish

Totally agree with the negative reviews below. Just cracked the bottle open for a pre dinner gin which we purchased for £16 from T.
To sum it up in as little words as possible it's Pisher than Pish.
Won't go past the Boe Violet gin, it's pure class.

13th October 2018


totally disagree with previous review. bought this at the weekend and with pink lemonade thought it was absolutely delicious!

3rd October 2018


I have to agree with the the review below of dissapointing. Its a if they have taken the very words from my mouth, same bitter after taste, and does smell of a cheap alcohol product you might use to clean something, It barely tastes of parma violets at all compared to another brand i have tasted which was exactly like it should be. Like those below we bought from tesco at £16 and its a total waste of money. its cheap and nasty.

2nd October 2018


Tasted this at a hotel in Scotland ........ And rushed out to buy some! Lovely!

Disappointing and chemical tasting

Bought from Tesco for £16 for 70cl. Was all excited to try this as I love parmaviolets :) my hubby and I were sooo disappointed! It smells a bit like hairspray, and tastes a lot like ...well ....hairspray :/ we both agree it has a chemical taste and I can’t taste any violet at all! Actually that’s not quite true....there’s an aftertaste that can maybe be likened to parmaviolets but bitter at the same time?? I checked the bottle over before I purchased and there’s no info at all about the botanicals used, so I don’t know if it’s synthetic flavouring that’s added , but in any case it’s not for us. Even reading the description here, it says there’s a selection of eight botanicals ‘along the lines of...’ and then names 4 of the ones that it’s ‘along the lines of....hmm, if that was printed on the bottle I’d never have bought it. See description of violet gin above and you’ll see what I mean! £16 wasted, but at least we tried it at a decent price.

20th September 2018


Bought this and the day after found it in Tesco for £16 a bottle

11th September 2018


My friend bought it for me. I had it with merchants heart pink peppercorn tonic. AMAZING!!

8th September 2018


I was given a bottle of this today by my brother and sister in law as a thank you gift. I love it and having it with tonic and ice and lemon. Is there a different fruit you would recommend to have with this rather than lemon??

12th August 2018

A very nice well priced gin

Well got a bottle today
And was very well priced ,yes not from mom but I must say has that present Parma voiolet aroma and taste ! Try it with a pink tonic you'll enjoy , note don’t over dose can knock ya head back a bit
