The beautiful palate of rose, cucumber, and pine is augmented by exotic rainforest herbal notes.
Hendrick’s Gin was launched by William Grant & Sons in 1999. It’s produced at their Girvan Distillery in South Ayrshire, Scotland — built in 1963. Somewhat famously, the distillery was built in a hurry due to a quarrel between William Grant & Sons and a supplier — Distillers Company Limited (DCL). From ground break to production took a short nine months. They produce several Single Malt and blended Whiskies there, in addition to Hendrick’s Gins.
Hendrick’s Gin is definitely one of our favorites. The line is super-high-quality and the flavor profile of the entire line leans towards a soft palate with brilliant aromatic florals. This combination makes Hendrick’s not just our Gin of choice for a Vesper Martini — it’s our secret weapon. So, we were really excited to get our hands on a few cases of Hendrick's Amazonia Gin. It’s not a part of the core lineup. Most of the time you have to find it in those duty-free travel retail outlets. It’s built on top of the signature Hendrick’s rose and cucumber infused Spirit with the addition of exotic South American botanicals.
Master Distiller Lesley Gracie spent three weeks in the Amazon Rainforest learning about native plants. The special formulation of Hendrick’s Amazonia is inspired by that experience.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is almost effervescent with bright floral notes and gentle herbs over just a hint of juniper berry.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is soft and alluring — that Scottish water — with a flavor profile that builds up from the aroma with rose ware, field greens mellow spices, and the illusion of sweetness.
The finish is clean and refreshing with a perfume that seems to last forever.
