Distilled in Ayrshire, Scotland, where one would least expect to find a Gin, Hendrick’s is made in miniscule batches of 450 liters which gives master distiller even greater control of his careful artistry. In the end this Gin is infused with the Bulgarian Rosa Damascena and specially selected cucumbers from Holland.
The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Hendrick's Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
Few Gin Distillers Make Their Own Alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral spirit: A commodity that in distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavour-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
Smell / Nose
Huge, intense nose with an initial burst of crisp zesty botanicals harmoniously balanced juniper and coriander and a deep, surprisingly floral aroma of violets & rose.
Taste / Palate
Smooth and superbly balanced botanicals. Hendricks Gin is clean & dry without being in way astringent. The complexity of the nose comes through in the taste, citrus and juniper with a subtle, lingering finish of cool, refreshing cucumber and rose.
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!
