Hendrick's Gin 750ML
Hendrick's meet the delightfully curious Hendrick's Gin. Life is simply too glorious not to experience its peculiar flavour, infused with rose and cucumber in our remote Scottish distillery. Seek out those who embrace the unusual, and you'll find that our gin is much loved by a handful of curious individuals all over the world. We invite you to join the merry few.
This gin has a fierce following, in part because of its quirky brand personality (see the Monty Python-esque website) and aggressive marketing among bartenders. But it lives up to the hype. Some might expect a more concentrated rosewater-cucumber profile, but it’s relatively subtle, with just a hint of cucumber mingling with juniper in the aroma, and white pepper, citrus and floral notes on the lingering finish.
