Why Hendricks And Cucumber?

All About Hendricks Gin

In recent years, gin has become one of the most popular spirits in the UK. One of the leading brands of gin is Hendricks, as they offer a wide range of flavour profiles, and have a bottle to suit everyone’s tastes. But what varieties do they offer? Where is Hendrick’s Gin from? Let’s take a closer look.

What is Hendricks Gin?

Hendrick’s needs little introduction, especially considering it’s one of the most popular gin suppliers in the UK. The original Hendrick’s is made from a selection of eleven botanicals. The finished result is a unique and smooth gin that you’d find difficult not to recognise once you’ve tried it.

Where is Hendricks Made?

Despite being incredibly popular in the US, this gin is actually distilled in Britain. The exact location is a place in South Ayrshire in Scotland, Girvan. What makes the location so special is that it’s near a volcanic isle, Aisla Craig.

What is Hendricks Gin Made From?

Hendrick’s unique flavour profile comes from its infusion of eleven botanicals, along with notes of cucumber and rose. Some of the botanicals used include: juniper, elderflower, chamomile, orange peel and lemon peel.

What Does Hendricks Gin Taste Like?

Hendrick’s is a dry but smooth gin. It has notes of rose and cucumber, with undertones of zestiness and florals from their perfected botanical blend. It’s known for its distinctive flavour profile. You’ll often see Hendrick’s Gin paired with a garnish of cucumber, and you may be wondering why. This is because cucumber is one of the main flavours in the gin, which is where it gets its refreshing taste. Hendrick’s themselves even recommend adding a slice of cucumber to the drink.

Which Hendricks Gin is the Best?

As well as their original gin, Hendrick’s now have a wide variation of blends to try.

  • Hendrick’s - Grand Cabaret Gin: This vintage gin is limited-edition and is ideal if you’re a fan of fruity flavoured Gins. It’s both light and refreshing, and also is sweeter than their original blend.
  • Hendrick’s - Flora Adora Gin: Floral with herby undertones. Made from a blend of many flowers, but it has coriander at its heart.
  • Hendrick’s - Lunar Gin: If you’re looking for a rich and deep flavour profile, this could be the gin for you. Perfect for sipping in the evening.
  • Hendrick’s - Neptunia Gin: This works particularly well as the base for a cocktail, or paired to make the perfect gin and tonic. This blend is smooth and bursting with citrus flavours.

Is Hendricks a High End Gin?

Hendrick’s is an incredibly high end gin. In fact, it’s one of the most premium gins in the world. For this reason, it can be on the slightly pricier end when it comes to purchasing gins. It usually costs around £30-£35 for a 70cl bottle.

In conclusion, when it comes to gin, there aren’t many brands that do it better than Hendrick’s. And the best part is, it’s distilled in the UK! As well as this, it’s both gluten free and vegan, making it suitable for a range of dietary profiles. IT makes a great present for a gin fanatic.
