Hendrick's Gin is so popular one would think it's been around since the beginning of time. It was actually launched in 1999 and after two decades, it needs no introduction. Its apothecary style bottle brings back Edwardian ads and makes it stand out in the crowd.
Distilled in a bespoke still and made from a variety of botanicals, macerated for 24 hours, the Gin absolutely stands out with its rose and cucumber notes that turn the booze that used to be "just a juniper concoction" into something spectacular. The juniper is still there, naturally, but the aromas of sweet orange and elderflower, and flavors of angelica and coriander, prove why Hendrick's is a staple of every bar and home.
Nowadays, the market is full of fancy and adventurous Gins, but one must not forget the one that started the craze. Play around with Gimlet and Martini, but make sure you finish your day with a classic G&T.
Hendricks gin is one of my go to gins. I enjoy it with fever-tree tonic and cucumber.
Still getting into Gin, good stable to start with.
Makes for a wonderful gin tonic with cucumber
Smells great of florals, juniper, cucumber and citrus zests,
Fantastic taste of juniper, and citrus,
Long finish of big juniper and black pepper,
Fantastic with Fever-tree Tonic, Cucumber and black peppercorns!
Love the subtle cucumber.
Delicious! Very smooth floral and citrus flavors with mild juniper taste
I really like this Gin, great with cucumber.
My house gin. Love the soft balance of the cumcumber infusion. Not floral, not dominated by juniper. A flexible drink that can hold its own in any gin concoction.
This is the gin that changed my mind about all gins tasting the way that Pinesol smells. It is smooth and subtle, and it doesn't punch you in the face with a big juniper fist.
I don’t like Gin. But I like this Gin. Doesn’t smell
One of my favorites
Nose is very aromatic, with rose, elderflower, and lime peel woven in with juniper. Tasting reveals a slightly salty note up front into cucumber peel, rose, citrus zest, herbs, and juniper. Spicy pepper notes follow, leading into a long finish with earthy bitterness, black liquorice, and lingering juniper. Gentle and flavorful enough to sip neat, but absolutely stunning in a G&T, especially with the brand recommended cucumber slice garnish. A perfect gin fore people who want a balance between old-style juniper forward and new-style botanical gin.
Light flavor, notes of juniper and elderflower
Perfect for martinis where the gin flavors really shine through
Home bar staple. Best G&T with a cucumber garnish. Also great with ginger beer and a lemon wedge.
Best gin I've ever had, make a G&T with this and St. Germain elderberry liqueur garnished with an orange slice.
Very smooth little people piney taste a but on the sweetest side but very good had it in a negroni a gin and tonic etc
Go to tonic with cucumber
Dry with very strong herbal flavors. Tastes great in a gimlet and a G&T.
Fantastic gin that you want to taste, pair it with cucumber
Easy drinking- lovely flavors
Refreshing and bright with a hint of rose
Wonderful aromas of rose and cucumber, but overwhelmed by the juniper berry. Nice occasionally, but not a great everyday drinker.
Perfect for cucumber GT and Aviation
Always one of my favorites.
Great gin. Simple and clean. Garnish with a slice of cucumber for a nice, refreshing drink
best. gin. ever
Absolute favorite gin
Great notes of rose petal and cucumber - delicious as a G&T garnished with cucumber.
This is my favourite gin. It isn't very floral, and it mixes well so it doesn't overpower what you mix it with. While adding a cucumber is best, lime can also add a tangy balance. I enjoy this with a good ginger beer and just a hint of lime
My favorite. It has surpassed my previous favorite, Bombay Sapphire
Nice flavor notes when you are looking for a new world gin.
The King of Gin in my opinion. In addition to the eclectic, old-timey, almost Steampunk branding and the apothecary-esque bottle/label, which all suit my fancy quite well, this is an amazing flippin' Gin! I'm not much for clear alcohol and prefer heavy Scotch Whiskies and Bourbons, but there's no better change of pace than Hendrick's Gin. Unlike Bond, I'll take a Hendrick's Martini with muddled cucumber over a Vesper any day (still shaken, not stirred of course!). Add a cocktail onion for a Hendrick's Gibson, and it's STILL an amazing drink. If you've ever experienced Rose or Elderflower Lemonade, Hendrick's takes it to the next level as a Collins, and it's only Gin I will happily enjoy neat or with an ice sphere. Many gins are trying to perfect the juniper berry taste, and I commend them, but this is going in a completely different direction - nothing tastes like Hendrick's, and no matter how many gins you stock in your bar, you'll always be missing something if you don't have a bottle of Hendrick's on hand. It's that unique, and it's that tasty. Cheers to the rose & cucumber!
Love the cucumber notes
Light and refreshing. Great in a hot day
loved the cucumber flavoring
A solid gin best for the summer month's. GReat with cucumber and elderflower liquor
By far my favorite gin... so smooth and clean.
Great taste, nice juniper notes. Makes a great martini.
Floral, notes of cucumber & herbs.
Perfect for martinis!
Love it, extremely smooth.
Good basic Gin.
I love Hendrick's. I like cucumber, so, that helps. It is also pretty juniper forward. Makes a dynamite G&T, gimlet, or martini.
Not bad; Not worth the price
Great with a cucumber or lime garnish in the summer. Very refreshing.
Something about those cucumber notes that sends to above and beyond for me
Very peculiar gin with a lot of different botanicals. Well what do I know I’m new to the Gin game anyway!
