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.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors 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 Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
A classic must have at home. Perfect for a G&T and garnish with some cucumber.
So good it doesn't need lime.
Absolute best gin for my bee’s knees. Or straight up.
Don't know much about gin except that I like it and I like this.
Unique Gin and drink with Cucumber to bring out the flavor. Do not use Lime.
A nice change of pace from the typical juniper-forward gin. The cucumber tones down the flavor and makes for a gin that is good for sipping.
Juniper berry is present on start to finish but not too strong. Amazingly smooth and not harsh at all.
Delicious gin to enjoy in a G&T with fevertree, pink peppercorn and cucumber
Kicks like a bronco
Delicious straight, chilled, table temp, or mixed. Always in my collection..
The absolute best gin around........
Liked it; fruity
Cucumber florals meld well with citrus
My go to gin, great balance of citrus flavors.
Favorite Gin, hands down, great staple.
Floral, lightly herbal, favorite. Excellent with flavored tonic, especially grapefruit
My favorite go to gin. The flavor is not improved by a lime, but a cucumber slices are delightful.
This is my go-to gin for martinis.
Berry-infused, refreshing, light gin
For me, this is the standard of floral, more complex gins. Personally, I can't distinguish the cucumber component; just an excellent blend of botanical flavors. Excellent combined with a floral vermouth, such as Dolin Dry. Consistent and an excellent base for many cocktails.
The gin I compare all other gins to. Some are better, some worse, some more floral, some drier, but this is the benchmark.
My current Gin of choice for G&T's. Still yet to find a gin I like to drink straight.
Bitter juniper on the nose, but tastes of oranges just shy of being ripe and the old flower shops from the 80s. Then a slightly spicy finish with boxwood. Not yet found this elusive cucumber...
I’m not a gin kind of person, at all, but damn was this pretty good.
Really good botanicals for a tonic!
Our go-to for gin. Great both in a simple G£T (Fevertree tonic is the best!) and in martinis and other mixed drinks. Perfect every time!
Learning to enjoy gin, this brand is enjoyable in a cocktail.
Best Gin I have had. Please contact me if you know of something better.
It works well with cucumber but that’s not really my drink so I will usually look for something else.
Love this mellow floral gin. This delicate spirit needs a delicate cocktail.
Solid. Great for G&Ts
Fantastic refreshingly smooth and not overpoweringly floral. Perfectly nuanced.
Refreshment in a bottle. The cucumber provides he perfect “twist” to keep a martini solidly in the classics category, thus avoiding the recent trend of giving a completely different drink the moniker it doesn’t deserve.
Very good and really smooth.
Fantastic with a little cucumber
Only gin I like straight on the rocks. Flavorful.
Currently my favorite gin. The cucumber tone is surprising refreshing. And who would have thought of garnishing a G&T with fresh cucumber? Brilliant!
Smooth and perfect with cucumber.
Surprised by the taste, very pleasant indeed
My favorite gin by far. Excellent flavor and smoothness.
Love this one! Has great herb taste and a lot of flavor.
Good botanicals and smooth finish
Strong botanical flavors, excellent for sipping and cocktails.
Add a slice of cucumber.
A tasty, every-day gin for mixed drinks.
I drink with tonic and a slice of cucumber to enhance the flavor. The best gin there is!
This is my favorite gin to make a London Mule with. It's smooth and blends remarkably well with a little lime juice and Goslings Ginger Beer to make a refreshing warm weather drink. I enjoy a good sharp juniper gin as well, but for a summer drink, this is the best.
I’m new to Gin and Hendrick’s is the first one I’ve tried. I love this one. It tastes like rose and cucumber. It’s smooth. I enjoy it with a little pink lemonade.
The Gin that got me drinking Gin. Botanical, mixes well with drinks or tonic but can stand on its own.
It's the ONLY Gin I drink, if the bar doesn't have it, I'm not drinking.
Easily my favorite gin
Great gin! Very floral!!
Easily my favorite gin of all time.
Not a bad gin, persay, but just uninteresting. I tend to prefer bolder, more juniper-forward notes that really come through in a cocktail. This one is too easily overpowered by other flavors.
My go-to gin, Hendrick's offers a cool cucumber touch to a standard gin and tonic. Great for cucumber martinis also!
My old standby. This is how I get skeptical people to try gin and like it. Delicious in a Gin and cucumber martini or in a Gin and tonic. Add a sprig of rosemary to change the way it presents if you want something different. You can't go wrong.
Excellent gin, made the perfect Negroni!
A go to gin for myself. No bar is complete without.
Smooth, zesty, and floral! This is my go to gin.
Smooth with hint of cucumber
Soft, fresh perfect for summer
This is my go to...for the price, there is nothing better!!
Makes a very nice cocktail and isn't too bitter.
Great all around gin. Lower juniper/pine flavors and definitely super smooth. I use it in basically every gin cocktail you can imagine.
I love the floral aroma and cucumber notes. It’s not my favorite gin, but it’s close.
great gin! appreciate the floral notes
One of the best Gins I’ve ever had. Fruity, not so strong, good after taste in the palate
Lovely flavor that is very crisp and clean. Adds a lot of depth to any mixed drink. Very smooth, easy to drink with an abundance of flavor.
This is the only way I do G&T, with cucumber
Best gin I have tasted. The base is different than any other gin I've tried.
delicate and bold
Not a gin guy but if I’m drinking it it’s probably this
Just okay. Way overused in my area in my opinion
Absolutely love this gin, by far my favorite. rose petals, cucumber, refreshing after a long day.
This is the worst excuse for gin I have ever experienced.
The perfect gin.
Favorite Gin, love it with a little muddled basil and some cucumber
My favorite Gin, hands down.
Great gin without the massive smack of pine.
Was highly pleased with this purchase. It was recommended by a friend and it didn't disappoint. Goes great with tonic or by itself on the rocks.
Good. I personally prefer the more traditional taste of a London dry.
Cucumber in my gin? I love it!
Nothing can beat this with a little bit of tonic and a lime.
Definitely my favorite for Martini’s.
Good standard gin
My favorite gin, simple and clean. Great with a twist of your favorite citrus.
Best gin on the market, much better than more expensive bottles
Go to Scottish Gin.
this is the go to gin
Delicious and balanced, allowing it to be mated with a myriad or ingredients to create delicious cocktails. Perfect summer gin.
This bit of gin tastes like a juniper tree that blooms cucumbers and could not have a more fresh finish.
Great flavor, cool looking bottles, seems to be very popular now
Really solid gin. Notes of rose and citrus work well together
Smooth. Extremely drinkable gin. Amazing with muddled cucumber.
My favourite go to Gin whenever I am out and about. Love the "rough" nature of this Gin, it gives you something to think about while you sip on it.
It is a smooth botanical drink that goes down nicely with a cucumber slice and tonic water over ice.
I am actually surprised I love this because I prefer tequila and whiskey. It is definitely a sleeper. It is mild in flavor. It is more floral than herbal for me.
My favorite Gin
Quite herbal taste, smooth.
Just started drinking gin and this one is as smooth as can be! Excellent on the rocks.
I have always been a whiskey drinke who had defaulted to Tanq prior to trying this wonderful treat. The full cucumber notes and rose infusion make Hendrick's and fresh cut cucumber a refreshing and exciting new favorite pick; just in time for this warm CA weather returning!
The easiest drinking Gin I’ve ever had. If you’ve tried gin before and didn’t like it, try this one, you will like it!
Not much of a gin drinker due to the potency of juniper berries. I like how it's still flavorful but the juniper takes a backseat.
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!
