Hendrick's is an unusual gin created from eleven fine botanicals. The curious, yet marvelous, infusions of rose & cucumber imbue our spirit with its uniquely balanced flavor resulting in an impeccably smooth distinct gin. The odd distillation method of making gin enables Hendrick's to taste light, yet intriguingly complex. The result is a wondrously refreshing gin with a delightfully floral aroma, elevating any cocktail and all occasions.
Hendrick's is created via an absurdly inefficient, yet quite glorious process. In essence, to make one gin, they first create two. The first is in the Bennett, an antique copper pot dating right back to 1860 and which steeps the botanicals in spirit overnight prior to distillation resulting in a rich, complex liquid. The second is in the Carter-Head, hailing from 1948, which gently steams the botanicals in a basket atop its lofty neck, so influence is imparted upon the spirit in something akin to a botanical steam bath. This yields a lighter, more delicate spirit. The gins from the two stills are then married together and graced with curious yet marvelous infusions of Rose and Cucumber.
