Infused with Bulgarian Rosa Damascena and specially selected cucumbers from the finest producers, Hendrick's prides itself on being a bit out of the ordinary. The eleven botanicals intermingle with rose and cucumber to create a palate of floral, juniper, citrus and cucumber flavours balanced with a creamy texture.
William Grant & Son uses two stills, one of which is a Carterhead Still from the 19th Century. Each one of the stills separately processes the two main ingredients/flavours of the gin – rose petals and cucumbers. These are then combined with 11 botanicals and the fermentation process begins.
Hendrick's Gin is medium bodied, crisp and lean with a long, lingering finish that has an unexpected infusion of cucumber and rose petals. No other gin tastes like it because no other gin is made like it.
Colour: Clear and colourless. Taste: Subtle and balanced juniper and citrus flavours with a hint of rose and cool cucumber. Nose: Floral rose with juniper, citrus and cucumber aromas. Finish: Soft and smooth with a subtle lingering finish.
