We are delighted to introduce Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice to Ireland. This new small batch, limited-edition gin, launching exclusively in O’Brien’s, will be your go to this summer.
This unique new gin is true to the Hendrick’s original style but follows its own path with the infusion of deeply floral essences reflecting the bright, aromatic intensity of a midsummer day. A new take on the house style bringing fragrant notes with zesty juniper whose initial brightness softens to undertones of orange blossom and exotic ripeness. The bright and floral style makes it perfect for summer drinking with drinks like the spritz below.
This latest expression from Hendrick’s was created by Master Distiller Lesley Gracie, the first from her ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’. The Cabinet is an actual cabinet where Gracie keeps her most experimental and treasured liquids safely under lock and key.
The cabinet is located in the newly opened home of the brand, the Hendrick’s Gin Palace. This new development is designed to be a “playground for experimentation, invention and curiosity’ and increases the number of stills meaning more of the Scottish gin but it will continue to be distilled in small batches, just like it was when first released in 1999.
This is only the beginning for new Hendrick’s experience with more new and unique gins from the ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ planned for release in the coming years.
