To draw out Hendrick's Gin's exquisite floral aromas, only the finest curl of fresh cucumber will do. To create the perfect curl, Hendrick's has specially designed an innovative instrument, transforming simple cucumbers into sublime garnishes. We're proud to present the Cucumber Curler.
This Hendrick's Gin gift set contains a 70cl bottle of Hendrick's Gin and a Cucumber Curler.
Nose: the nose certainly has juniper, but the musky hint of rose lightens it and gives it a floral forward impression. Sweet orange, lime zest and a hint of elderflower as well. The pine notes give it structure, but the floral notes give it a unique character.
Palate: the palate exudes a backbone of a very classic gin. You get the angelica, coriander, juniper and orris root accord. Sitting on top of that Hendrick’s has a surprising amount of citrus, especially mid-palate where orange and lime again resurface, almost with a candy-like note. Late palate a faint hint of yarrow (that slight salty licorice flavor) and black pepper.
Finish: Hendrick’s Gin finish is fairly long, with a serious juniper backed astringency. Notes of soaked rose petal, lime, Persian cucumbers, Earl Grey Tea and a surprising bitterness. A dull warmth of the spirit emanates quietly from the back of the palate. Very interesting.
