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.
This gin is so good I don’t even allow it to be mixed at my home, not even a G&T, straight up or a splash of soda max. My wife even enjoys sipping this one, rocks. She normally passes on anything with gin. Don’t take that the wrong way gin aficionados, i’ve been enjoying gin for 20 years, this one hits the mark.
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!
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.
