A Moon-inspired, cosmic Gin for all the night owls out there.

No special introduction needed, the one and only Hendrick's Gin was launched by William Grant & Sons at Girvan Distillery in Scotland in 1999, which might seem somewhat recent given their reputation. (Although if you ask a member of the Gen Z, this is already ancient history.) It was at the very beginning that Charlie Gordon, the great grandson of William Grant and the company founder, asked Lesley Gracie to hop on board and create the original Gin recipe. Over 20 years later, Lesley Gracie is still their Master Distiller and she makes sure every drop of Hendrick's Gin tastes exactly the same as the original recipe.

Following Midsummer Solstice Gin, this is the second release from Ms Gracie's limited Cabinet of Curiosities. She is said to have been inspired by a "moonlit evening while tending to botanicals in the hothouse." Lunar Gin is based on the original Hendrick's Gin recipe, including the selection of 11 carefully picked botanicals and their curious, signature infusion of rose and cucumber, but with some intriguing additions. Distilled in two sorts of antique stills, this is a warm and spicy as well as deeply floral and aromatic Gin. Perfect for all the contemplative, reflective evenings when the day turns into night, the Moon takes over the Sun and the world becomes a magical, mysterious place. Bewitching!

Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
The first spirit from the distillery ran in Christmas of 1963, as a memoir to William Grant, who managed to produce the first spirit of Glenfiddich, on Christmas day. 
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
