The Allure of Hendrick's Gin: A Journey with The Epicurean Trader - The Epicurean Trader


At The Epicurean Trader, our mission is to bring quality food and beverages to communities that lack them, supporting small-batch producers who craft their goods authentically. Today, we dive into the world of Hendrick's Gin, a brand that epitomizes the essence of premium craft spirits.

The Legacy of Hendrick's Gin

History and Origins

Hendrick's Gin, a product of William Grant & Sons, hails from the quaint seaside town of Girvan, Scotland. Launched in 1999, Hendrick's quickly distinguished itself in the gin market with its unique flavor and quirky branding. The brand has since become a staple for gin enthusiasts worldwide.

Craftsmanship and Distillation Process

The magic of Hendrick's Gin lies in its meticulous distillation process. Master distiller Lesley Gracie oversees the production, combining spirits from two distinct types of stills: the Bennett and the Carter-Head. This dual-method approach creates a gin with unparalleled smoothness and complexity.

Unique Botanical Ingredients

Core Botanicals

Hendrick's Gin features an intriguing blend of botanicals, with juniper, coriander, and citrus peel forming the base. However, it's the infusion of rose petals and cucumber that sets it apart, delivering a fresh, floral aroma and a crisp, clean taste.

Flavor Profile

Hendrick's Gin offers a delightful symphony of flavors. The initial hit of juniper is softened by the floral notes of rose, while the cucumber adds a refreshing finish. This balanced profile makes it a versatile base for a variety of cocktails.

The Hendrick's Gin Experience

Signature Cocktails

Hendrick's Gin shines in classic and contemporary cocktails alike. Here are a couple of favorites:

- Hendrick's & Tonic: Fill a highball glass with ice, add 50ml of Hendrick's Gin, top with tonic water, and garnish with cucumber slices.

- Cucumber Martini: Combine 50ml of Hendrick's Gin, 15ml of dry vermouth, and a dash of orange bitters in a mixing glass with ice. Stir well and strain into a chilled martini glass, garnished with a cucumber slice.

Serving Suggestions

For the best Hendrick's Gin experience, serve it in a chilled glass with plenty of ice. Garnishes like cucumber slices or rose petals enhance the gin's unique botanicals.
