Cocktail of the week: Whitley Neill’s Ruby Martini

Whitley Neill Connoisseur's Cut Gin Ruby Martini

Whitley Neill may be well known for its vast rainbow of flavoured gins, but it has gone back to basics with its latest edition: the Connoisseur’s Cut. Going on sale in Waitrose this month, the gin has been distilled at the City of London Distillery and bottled at a higher ABV of 47%, which the brand says emphasises its juniper and citrus notes. One of the brand’s recommended serves for this top-notch tipple is a Ruby Martini, elevated with the addition of grapefruit. If you don’t have grapefruit bitters to hand, another citrus variety would suffice.

Ruby Martini


  • 60ml Whitley Neill Connoisseur’s Cut Gin
  • 20ml dry white vermouth
  • 10ml grapefruit juice
  • 2 drops grapefruit bitters
  • Fresh grapefruit peel and a cherry, to garnish


Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass with large cubes of ice and gently stir for 20 seconds. Strain into a chilled Martini glass and garnish with a curl of fresh grapefruit peel and a cherry.
