— What a wonderful surprise G&T with cucumber and orange zest... delish!
— I love this gin! I have always enjoyed gin but this has a lovely floral note that is delicious straight or with tonic. I created a drink using this gin, violet liqueur and a dash of rose water over ice topped with a bit of club sod and garnished with a lemon peel, extraordinary and refreshing!
— So amazingly delicious! Very smooth, great flavor profile. Fruit forward but crisp and clean. One of my all time favorite gins!

Pairs very well with an orange in the g&t
What a wonderful surprise G&T with cucumber and orange zest... delish!
An elaborate, floral, beautiful drink. Delicately balanced and full of depth, it's also remarkably easy to sip on. This is a truly wonderful drink.
I absolutely love this Gin. The botanical flavors are delicate, lightly sweet, and delightful. I've enjoyed it most over ice, or neat. It absolutely stands on it's own. Added to orange seltzer with a slice of orange is very nice too but I found I longed for the experience of tasting the gin without embellishment. Look at the flavor spiral for this, it's dead-on, and the flavors are brought out so langourously that you can't miss them.
Very flavorful; more botanical than "regular" Hendricks. It seems almost a waste to mix it with tonic. A good complement to lemon and champagne in a French 75, but don't waste it in a Negroni. Excellent in The Last Word, along with Luxardo maraschino and green Chartreuse!
Second only to the original Hendrick’s.
Fantastic floral flavors.
Good gin, the flowery taste isn't my thing but goes well in a G&T.
Great botanicals, no lime needed!
Very floral. Nice for a martini
Purple bottle was a little weird but a fantastic floral and fruit scent and flavor.

I use to hate gin until I tasted this release. It has a strong floral scent and a citrus and floral taste that overpowers the traditional juniper notes. Great with elderflower and in refreshing summer cocktails
Very good.. delicious and changing. With my first taste (just straight and room temperature) the gin was very floral.. but after adding ice and having another drink I got notes of strawberry and raspberry.. very different and very smooth.. I finished with ice and soda and it made a very complex delicious cocktail. Love it.
Color is absent, clear. Nose is floral, with a bouquet of unidentified flowers and lavender dominating. Underneath the floral is the classic Hendrick's Rose and cucumber. First sip is pleasant, floral, gentle. No harsh flavor or finish. The lavender does not overpower but shows. The floral is soft and mildly sweet. Quite pleasant on the rocks. Tonic water becomes very important, however, due to the delicate floral notes. Mixing with too powerful a tonic (i.e. Fever Tree Indian Tonic Water) and the bitterness of the quinine overpowers the notes and they are lost. Diet tonic (i.e. Zevia Tonic Water) also interferes with gentle notes. The right tonic though (Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water) enhances the floral notes and makes a refreshingly light and floral drink. Overall, this is a solid Gin, but I prefer classic Hendrick's for its simplicity and Orbium for its uniqueness over this take.
One of my favorite gins. Incredibly pleasing floral notes. I like it over ice or in a gimlet.
very floral great for negroni and gin and tonics great notes
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,
Beautifully floral, such a unique gin!
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
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.
It turned out nice in cocktails but notes of Elderflower overpowered when sipped alone
Smoother and more floral than the original. I say it’s a must try for gin lovers. Makes a delicious French 75.
An amazingly, pleasant floral not that stands up to with any tonic. Refreshing summer change up from cucumber/herbal notes.
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.
Pleasantly surprised. This was my first gin purchase
A Gin lovers delight! Wonderful fragrance and flavorful for Gin and Tonics and a good old fashioned Tom Collins.
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.
