The Botantist Gin
BODY THE SPIRIT IS SATIN SMOOTH GLIDING OVER THE PALATE LIKE NO GIN YOU HAVE EVER TRIED BEFORE. A TOTALLY SEDUCTIVE EXPERIENCE.
NOSE THE AROMAS EXPLODE LIKE AN OLFACTORY AURORA BOREALIS, FILLING THE SENSES WITH METEORITES OF SMELL SENSATIONS AS THEY EXPLODE FROM THE GLASS. SWEET DELICATE MENTHOL, APPLE MINT, SPRING WOODLANDS, JUNIPER, CORIANDER WITH ANISEED UNDERTONES, LEMON AND ORANGE PEEL, A BOUQUET OF SUMMER FLOWERS ON THE MACHIR, HONEY FROM THISTLE, COCONUT FROM GORSE, WILD MINT AND SUMMER MEADOWS. IT’S A MAGICAL MELODY OF ISLAY’S NATURAL BOUNTY FROM THE ATLANTIC WASHED BEACHES TO THE SUMMIT OF HEATHER COVERED HILLS. INHALE AND YOU’RE THERE ON THE QUEEN OF THE HEBRIDES!
PALATE THE TASTE IS RICH AND MELLOW; COOL ON ENTRY THEN AS IT REACHES THE BACK PALATE YOU CAN FEEL THE WARMTH AND ABSOLUTE PURITY OF SLOW UNHURRIED DISTILLATION. THIS IS A BEWITCHING, DELECTABLE AND LUXURIOUS GIN; ITS CITRUS FRESHNESS EXCITES AND STIMULATES THE TASTE BUDS ALLOWING YOU TO EXPERIENCE A STARBURST OF FLAVOURS AS THEY EXPLODE ACROSS THE PALATE.
FINISH ALL THIS FROM A BEATEN UP OLD POT STILL, OPERATED BY BEATEN UP DISTILLERS ON THE COAST OF HEAVEN.
Inspired by the beautiful nature of Shetland, we wait each year for the right weather conditions to harvest our botanicals. With each vintage the botanicals used change slightly due to the quality and quantity available. Our Shetland botanicals are infused with juniper and coriander, plus other botanicals including lime, to give our dry gin its unique and complex flavour. We steep the botanicals in natural mineral water to release their gentle flavours before we go on to distillation in small batches using a traditional copper still. Over the years our vintage gin has won gold medals and been judged by experts, across the world beating many well-known brands in the process.
An abundance of citrus on the nose with gentle floral notes to follow. Extremely smooth yet crisp with citrus, herbal and floral notes coming through on the palate.
A Tale of Two Stills
Hendrick’s is the marriage of two different spirits from two rare and unusual stills: the Bennet still and the Carter-Head still. By combining the two, we are able to create an extraordinarily smooth gin that has the required character and balance of subtle flavours.
The Infusion of Rose & Cucumber
No other gin taste like Hendrick’s because no other gin is made like Hendrick’s. We infuse our gin with the remarkable Bulgarian Rosa Damascena and specially selected cucumbers from the finest producers.
