Hendricks

By Chad Carns

No other gin taste like Hendrick’s because no other gin is made quite like it.

Hendricks is a small-batch gin made with hints of Coriander, Juniper, Citrus Peel, Rose Petals, and an infusion of Cucumber. The botanicals function to complement and set the stage for for a delicious duet of infusions: rose petal and cucumber. You really taste the cucumber in the finish. I love a Hendricks Martini but ask for a cucumber garnish instead of the traditional olive. This is not a traditional gin.

Hendrick’s is the marriage of two different spirits from two rare and unusual stills: the Bennet still and the Carter-Head still. By combining the two, the end product is an extraordinarily smooth gin that has the required character and balance of subtle flavors.
