Brainchild of 5th generation distillers William Grant & Sons, Hendrickā€™s Gin spearheaded the gin renaissance when it launched in 1999. Hendrickā€™s is the number one super premium gin in the world. Hendrickā€™s is a distilled comprised from a proprietary recipe featuring 11 botanicals collected from the four corners of the world. Master Distiller Miss Lesley Gracie utilises two types of still in the creation of Hendrickā€™s; traditional ā€œBennetā€ style, and rarer ā€œCarterheadā€ style. By blending the contrasting distillates together she is able to achieve a rare union of lightness and complexity that is finally consummated with the infusion of essences of Bulgarian rose and carefully selected cucumbers. Hendrickā€™s is distilled in their ā€œGin Palaceā€ located in the tiny seaside town of Girvan, Ayrshire, Scotland.

Key Facts
