Hendrick’s Lunar, the second limited edition release from Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie’s Cabinet of Curiosities, is a delightfully smooth and alluring gin that offers a delicate balance of gentle spice, subtle floral notes with a soft citrus finish. It is best enjoyed during casual nights at home and is a curious companion for sundowners and starry nights with friends. Undeniably celestial, Ms. Gracie devised Lunar under a waxing crescent moon and its cosmic properties are pervasive from packaging to taste profile.
Hendrick’s Lunar is best enjoyed in light & crisp cocktails such as the Lunar Cosmic Cooler – our uniquely Hendrick’s take on a classic Gin Rickey.
Hendrick’s Gin is created via an absurdly inefficient, yet quite glorious process. In essence, to make one gin, we first create two. One on an old-fashioned pot still, yielding a rich and intricate spirit. The other on along-necked Carter Head, producing a delicate, more refined spirit. Each still is infused with an unusual symphony of 11 botanicals. The gins from the two stills are then married together and graced with refreshing infusions of Rose and Cucumber.
Hand-crafted on the Southwest coast of Scotland in the decidedly un-ginnish town of Girvan, tiny batches are produced at a time, which gives Ms. Lesley Gracie, the inventor of Hendrick’s Gin, greater control of her careful artistry.
