Hendrick’s Dry Gin
Brainchild of 5th generation distillers William Grant & Sons, Hendrick’s Gin spearheaded the gin renaissance when it launched in 1999. Hendrick’s is the number one super premium gin in the world.
Hendrick’s is a distilled comprised from a proprietary recipe featuring 11 botanicals collected from the four corners of the world. Master Distiller Miss Lesley Gracie utilises two types of still in the creation of Hendrick’s; traditional “Bennet” style, and rarer “Carterhead” style.
By blending the contrasting distillates together she is able to achieve a rare union of lightness and complexity that is finally consummated with the infusion of essences of Bulgarian rose and carefully selected cucumbers.
Hendrick’s is distilled in their “Gin Palace” located in the tiny seaside town of Girvan, Ayrshire, Scotland.

|Nose:||Huge, intense nose with an initial burst of crisp zesty botanicals harmoniously balanced juniper and coriander and a deep, surprisingly floral aroma of violets and rose.|
|Palate:||Smooth and superbly balanced botanicals. Clean and dry without being in any way astringent. The complexity of the nose comes through in the taste; citrus and juniper with a subtle lingering finish of cool refreshing cucumber and rose.|
|Finish:||In addition to the traditional juniper infusion, Hendrick's uses Bulgarian rose and cucumber to add flavour.|
|Serve:||Hendrick’s Gin and Tonic For a delightfully refreshing tipple, serve Hendrick's Gin over ice, top up with tonic and garnish with a slice of cucumber to fully appreciate the infusion of rose petal and cucumber in this most unusual gin.|
