The sea everything! Invigorated by a bracing breath of fresh coastal air and entranced by the endless living mysteries of the sea, Ms. Lesley Gracie considered a bold possibility: She longed to express the glorious sensory delights of the coast, as a gin. And so began Hendrick's Neptunia Gin. Their first maritime release, the fresh sea-song notes characteristic of native coastal flora vigorously emboldens Hendrick's signature combination of Cucumber and Rose, culminating in an astonishingly smooth citrus finish.
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.
