Hendrick’s Gin Palace

Operated by: Hendrick’s Gin

Located within the grounds of one of Scotland’s most prestigious grain whisky distilleries (Girvan) lies the Hendrick’s Gin Palace. Every drop of Hendrick’s consumed around the world has flowed through the stills contained within the distillery under the watchful eye of Master Distiller, Miss Lesley Gracie.

The Hendrick’s distillery has a rather unusual assemblage of traditional “Bennett” Style and rarer “Carterhead” style distillation. The leaders of this peculiar ensemble are a contrasting pair of antique copper stills purchased at auction in London by Charles Gordon in 1966 (the great grandson of William Grant). The two forms of distillation produce different styles of gin (from the same botanicals) which are then blended together before being finally consummated with the essences of Rose and Cucumber.

The Gin Palace site boasts a state of the art laboratory where a technical team work on continuous innovation and uphold consistency through botanical analysis.

The Hendrick’s Gin Palace is not open to the public for visits.

Hendrick’s Gin Palace Brands:

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.

Hendrick’s Orbium

Orbium is a Quininated Gin from the creator of Hendrick’s Gin, Master Distiller Lesley Gracie.  It's a reinterpretation of the house style of Hendrick’s gin, but has been further instilled with three additional extracts: Quinine, Wormwood & Blue Lotus Blossom. Orbium contains the same distillates as Hendrick's Gin, however, the same remarkable mind that broke conventions by infusing gin with essences of cucumber and rose has now taken gin in an altogether new direction by infusing flavours that are traditionally associated with classic gin libations; quinine found in tonic (Gin & Tonic) and wormwood found in Vermouth (Martini Cocktail). But it is not yet quite Orbium.
