Hendrick’s Gin is an unusual gin created from eleven fine botanicals, with the curious, yet marvelous, infusions of rose and cucumber. This botanical bouquet imbues our spirit with its uniquely balanced flavor resulting in an impeccably smooth distinct gin.
The distilling process is absurdly inefficient, yet quite glorious. In essence, to make one gin, we first create two. One on an old-fashioned pot still, yielding a rich and intricate spirit. The other on a long-necked Carter Head, producing a delicate, more refined spirit. Each still is infused with an unusual symphony of 11 botanicals: chamomile, elderflower, juniper, lemon peel, orange peel, caraway, coriander, cubeb berries, angelica root, yarrow root and orris root. The gins from the two stills are then married together and graced with curious yet marvelous infusions of rose and cucumber.
Our Master Distiller, Ms. Lesley Gracie, handcrafts Hendrick’s in tiny batches of only 500 lovely liters at a time, which gives her great control of her careful artistry. She has been crafting Hendrick’s since 1999, and is one of the few women Master Distillers in the world.
This odd method of making gin enables Hendrick’s to taste light, yet intriguingly complex. The result is a wondrously refreshing gin with a delightfully floral aroma, elevating any cocktail and all occasions.
We are not saying Hendrick’s Gin is the most distinctive gin in the world, except that is exactly what we are saying.
