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.

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.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
The distillery was a home for the Ladyburn single malt, for 10 years. Today, it is a home plant for Hendrick's Gin and Ailsa Bay malt Whisky distillery.
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.
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. 
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
