Hendrick's Gin is made in Scotland by madmen
Hendrick’s Gin‘s story starts in 1860 when the Bennet still was made. The Bennet still was made by coppersmiths in the English capital of London and gained in the following years a reputation for producing robust spirits with a lot of flavour. Unknown at this point, the still would later be very important in the creation of Hendrick’s Gin . A few years later, in 1886, Mr. William Grant, along with his seven sons and two daughters, opened their family distillery in the beautiful country of Scotland. In 1948, John Dore & Co. created the Carter-Head still which was then, years later, used to distil Hendrick’s Gin . The still possessed of a vapour-driven flavour basket which sat at the top of a long neck, producing a subtle and fresh gin. Although the Carter-Head still is a masterpiece, it has become quite rare and there are only a few still in existence.
The story grew even more curious when, in 1955, Lesley Gracie was born. A keen botanist from an early age, Gracie used to make tea for her family out of various plants and twigs when she was a child; such quirkiness was just what Hendrick’s Gin needed. In 1966, the future co-creator of Hendrick’s Gin and great-grandson of William Grant, Charles Gordon, visited an auction and purchased, completely by chance, two rare gin stills. The stills in question were none other than a Bennet still and a Carter-Head still. The planets aligned in 1988 when Gordon enlisted Gracie to join him on his quest to create a gin using his two antique stills. After almost a decade of trying, the pair finally triumphed in creating Hendrick’s Gin . Using the two stills, they distilled an absurd gin with a strange collection of botanicals. Infused with cucumber and rose, Hendrick’s Gin is one of the best-known premium gins on the market and enjoyed all over the world.

Purchase a bottle of Hendrick’s Gin and make yourself a magnificent, eccentric cocktail. There are a lot of gin-based cocktails to choose from but, just for starters, try Hendrick’s Gin in a ‘Forenoon Fizz’. Combine 1 spoonful orange marmalade, 40ml Hendrick’s Gin , 12.5ml Cointreau, and 20ml lemon juice in a shaker. Stir well so that the marmalade dissolves and then add ice and shake. Strain into a flute and fill the rest with champagne. Hendrick’s Gin deserves some kind of whacky garnish; we’d recommend a small slice of toast. This gin-based cocktail is great for those who are tired of Gin and Tonics and presents Hendrick’s Gin for what it is: a complex and insane spirit. So experiment and buy Hendrick’s Gin from our online shop, either on its own, or as part of a Hendrick’s Gin and Tonic Set.
