Hendricks Gin 2011
Hendricks is an iconoclastically produced small batch gin distilled in Ayrshire, Scotland. Our unusual distillation process combined with our oddly delicious set of infusions yields a one-of-a-kind gin that is passionately loved by a tiny yet growing handful of individuals all over the world. No other gin tastes like it because no other gin is made like it.
When I am not drinking Wine G&T is my drink of choice, and I have found Hendricks to be the best gin in the market for me. The fragrance is more pleasant and fresh than most other gins, so you can have a few w/o fear of smelling like an intoxicated person. It tastes fresh, finishes crisps, with hints of citrus. I guess the fact that is infused with Cucumbers, and not just made with juniper fruits as all other gins, really makes the difference. This gin taste softer and more elegantly than the rest.
One of the best carefully-crafted gins on the market today. The cucumber flavors come through well in a variety of cocktails (try 3 parts Hendrick's to two parts Domaine de Canton - not original, from the label of the latter) and compliment the more typical juniper flavors well.
I have been anti-gin for a long time, but Hendricks made me a believer again. Instead of that pine-needle bite, this Gin is light and citric. It's also got a hint of cucumber, so if you add a slice or 2 to your G+T, it's almost like eating a salad! It might be more "top shelf" than most of the liquor I drink, but if I'm having gin, Hendricks is the only choice I have to make.
one of the best readily-available gins i've had. thought tanq #10 was my fav until this supplanted it. it's so good, i really don't like mixing it w/ other flavors too often. definitely wouldn't waste this on, say, a g&t. make a liq-nitrogen-cold martini, extra dry, n you're good.
Tanqueray stood out as the best gin until I tried Hendricks once at a bar. I was taken aback. It was like actually chewing the fresh juniper berries. I was very pleased.
What's New in Booze - 9.3 out of 10 If you are like me whiskies and other brown spirits are little to heavy for me during the summer months. That is why when the temperatures are up I turn to Gin and Hendrick's is probably the most complex and unique Gin I have ever had, however it is not for everyone.
The Hendricks Buck with cucumber peel is a a thing of beauty. Refreshing with ultra complex flavour. Best enjoyed as in the booklet. I like to peel some cucumber, slice it into thin strips, and then place them between the ice cubes for aesthetic appeal. A friend commented, that it looks like drinking a pond, but in a good way. Bitter Truth Celery bitters are also a nice touch but not essential.

\ The nose offers wave after wave of botanical and floral perfumes, with the end bouquet focused on cucumber and spring garden floral scents. The palate entry is moderately oily, semisweet and gently herbal; the midpalate stays spirity, vegetal and earthy. The aftertaste features juniper with a dry and minerally undertaste. - P.P. (11/1/2006) - Very Good/Recommended \
