Everything we all love about Hendrick’s Gin with highland summer florals.
 
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 was a short nine months. They produce several Single Malt and blended Whiskies there, in addition to Hendrick’s Gins.
 
We love getting in on the ground floor with a new Spirit — especially when it’s one of this quality. Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice was launched in the UK in March of 2019, and it’s arriving in the US for the first time… right now. TaDa! 
 
Hendrick’s says that their new Midsummer Solstice Gin was inspired by the mysterious and ephemeral delights of floral blooms during the summer solstice. As far as we’re concerned, the most important thing is that they haven’t lost the core of why we love Hendrick’s Gin — the exceptional quality and flavor profile is there. But they’ve infused an additional “secret” selection of florals, adding complex aromatics and light sweetness that really brings something new.

Ratings & Reviews
Zack
Zack,
very floral great for negroni and gin and tonics great notes
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
It is a very floral and intricate flavored liquor that I hesitate to call”gin.” It does not play nicely with traditional gin mixers and given it’s complexity is best sipped over ice or in the driest of martinis. I had longed for this elusive bottle since I first heard of it. Now it sits in my cabinet, having been tasted,

Refreshing changeup for G&T! - Floral essence has a punch if you're not prepared...and I love it.

Great, but original is better. A little too floral
 
John
John,
It was great. I am looking to find and purchase another bottle. If you like botanical gin, I would strongly recommend adding this to your collection.

Cassandra,
It turned out nice in cocktails but notes of Elderflower overpowered when sipped alone

Ian,
Smoother and more floral than the original. I say it’s a must try for gin lovers. Makes a delicious French 75.
 
Anita
Anita,
An amazingly, pleasant floral not that stands up to with any tonic. Refreshing summer change up from cucumber/herbal notes.
 
George
George,
I've gotten to the point where, with most gins, I need to add a dash or two of bitters to my gin & tonic to give it a little more depth. This is the first gin that has made me realize that there are no bitters that could possibly improve the experience. I may even start to forego the twist of lime.

ROSEANN,
Pleasantly surprised. This was my first gin purchase

Jimmy,
A Gin lovers delight! Wonderful fragrance and flavorful for Gin and Tonics and a good old fashioned Tom Collins.

Arthur,
Extremely good gin. Very smooth with all the flavors you would expect with some floral & lavender essence that is expertly applied to be pleasant and not overwhelming-adds a great little twist to your gin n tonics, martinis, and Tom Collins! Worth every penny

Very floral on the nose with a touch of juniper and a healthy serving of berries and lavender. Can be drunk alone with an ice cube. Absolutely brilliant in a gin and tonic with 25% gin and 75% tonic.
