Proof66 Notes

One of a few gins made in Scotland, Hendrick's Gin regards itself and its distillers as "iconoclasts" with openly "odd" distillation processes and infusions. Their still is said to be one of four existing "Carter-Head Stills," which instead of "crudely" boiling the alcohol instead "bathes it in vapors." Then the infusions of Bulgarian Rose and cucumber complete the unusual journey. They openly describe their gin as "Loosely yet brilliantly interpreted."

Hendrick's rose in the late 20th century as an experiment from William Grant and Sons to create a lighter gin of less dominant juniper character. While it is recently developed, the medicine-like bottle design and marketing both hearken to the "gin craze" of England in the 19th century. It is recommended drunk with a slice of cucumber rather than citrus or olive.

Please note: Hendrick's offers two different bottling proofs at 88 and at 82.8 generally offered in North America and Europe respectively. This listing is for the 82.8 proof version. The 88 proof expression is highly decorated in North America and we presume the formulation is the same.
