Hendrick's is an unusual gin created from eleven fine botanicals. The curious, yet marvelous, infusions of rose and cucumber imbue our spirit with its uniquely balanced flavor resulting in an unimpeachably smooth and distinct gin.
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.
