Hendrick's Gin 70cl
A wonderfully strange combination of rose and cucumber provides this famous gin with its smooth, distinct taste
Hendrick's is the marriage of two different spirits from two rare and unusual stills. The harmonious combination of the Bennett and Carter-Head stills are unusually soft like no other, and it is this blend that gives the requisite character and balance of subtle flavours.
Based at our "Gin Palace" in Girvan (South-west Scotland), Ms Lesley Gracie is our Master Distiller — and the inventor of Hendrick’s Gin. Part alchemical genius, part liquid poet and part scientist — Ms Gracie is one of the world’s greatest gin innovators.
It is the genius of Ms Gracie that created the unique flavour which comes from using rose and cucumber along with 11 other botanicals. Obviously this includes juniper, but also coriander, orange, lemon, angelic, orris, blackberries, caraway, chamomile, elderflower and yarrow berries.
All these botanicals give their own specific taste and aromas to the gin, making it exquisitely balanced, wonderfully complex, but also simply delicious!
Enjoy as a gin and tonic, with either Fentimans Premium Indian Tonic water, or for something slight sweeter and more floral, try with Fever-Tree Elderflower tonic. In both options, use plentiful ice, and three thin slices of cucumber to help bring our the unique tastes found within this gin.
