The exclusive Hendricks Gin from the remote Scottish distillery William Grant & Sons convinces with a mild and balanced taste and was lauded as “the best Gin in the world” in 2003 by the Wall Street Journal
At first after opening the bottle of smooth Hendricks Gin a fine juniper berry scent is released. After a short time the fragrance also uncovers a shade of rose which in combination with the Juniper berry fragrance ensures a sweet smell adventure.
In addition to juniper berry, aromas of roses can also be traced on the palate. However they are accompanied by a pleasant peppery note which is probably due to the botanical black pepper. In the finish the taste of the robust and flavorful Hendricks Gin evaporates very quickly and leaves an interesting sharpness on the palate which in no way interferes with the unique taste of the Hendricks Gin.
The small-batch Hendricks Gin is made in Girvan in Scotland in the traditional distillery William Grant & Sons. William Grant, his seven sons and two daughters began building the distillery in 1860.The distillery has been producing spirits since 1887 and is known primarily for its Blended Scotch Whisky. Today the distillery is the largest in Scotland and is also family-owned. Only about 500 liters of Hendricks Gin is produced annually making this Gin quiet sough-after and great collector’s item.
For the production of the Hendricks Gin a traditional method is used which provides for the use of a Carter-Head still dating back to 1948 and a secret recipe.
Since the recipe is kept secret even today we cannot exactly say what delectable Botanicals are used for the Gin. It is only known that in addition to classic juniper berry, citrus peel and coriander two unusual Botanicals are used namely Bulgarian rose extract and mashed cucumber and also some unnamed flowers, roots, seeds and fruit.
In addition to its fabulous taste the crystal-clear Hendricks Gin stands out from the rest with his outward appearance. The dark blue glass bottle which is in the form of an old apothecary bottle is very elegant and stylish. As a result the Hendricks Gin is not only optimal as an eye catcher but also an excellent addition for every bar as well as an elegant gift.
As the manufacturer we recommend that you consume the multiple award winning Hendricks Gin in the form of a classic Gin and tonic on ice. Particularly tasteful is the Gin with a 28 Drinks Tonic Water or a Fever Tree Tonic Water. The Gin also makes an awesome cocktail.
