First launched in 2001, Hendrick’s Gin has been the success story that has set the bench mark for modern gin brands. Seeing a gap in the market, William Grant and Sons decided to release a premium gin in 1999. Working with their famed Malt Master David Stewart and Lesley Gracey they developed a flavour profile for the gin inspired by eating cucumber sandwiches and British gardens.
In addition to the traditional juniper infusion, Hendrick’s uses Bulgarian rose and cucumber to add flavour. Hendrick’s distills in miniscule batches of 500 litres, which gives our master distiller even greater control of his careful artistry.
Here’s a recipe for the classic Hendrick’s Gin & Tonic
- 50ml Hendrick’s Gin
- 150ml Tonic Water
- 3 Thinly sliced rounds of cucumber
Fill a high ball glass with cubed ice. Combine all ingredients and give a gentle stir. Garnish with 3 thinly sliced rounds of cucumber.
