Hendrick's Gin, Neptunia, 750 Millilitre, $39.99
Hendrick's Neptunia is a limited release gin that captures the magic of the sea that is infused with an exquisite blend of coastal botanicals and a smooth citrus finish. Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie’s creation is as refreshing as her muse, the mighty waves that lash the Ayrshire coast.
It is sublime with tonic and slice of cucumber or perhaps in a Neptunia Fizz garnished with thinly sliced rounds of cucumber.
Hand-crafted on the Southwest coast of Scotland in the decidedly un-ginnish town of Girvan, tiny batches of only 500 lovely litres are produced at a time, which gives Ms. Gracie greater control of her careful artistry.
Hendrick’s Gin is created via an absurdly inefficient, yet quite glorious process. In essence, to make one gin, we first create two. One on an old-fashioned pot still, yielding a rich and intricate spirit. The other on along-necked Carter Head, producing a delicate, more refined spirit. Each still is infused with an unusual symphony of 11 botanicals. The gins from the two stills are then married together and graced with refreshing infusions of Rose and Cucumber.
This odd method of making gin enables Hendrick’s to taste light, yet intriguingly complex. The result is a wondrously refreshing gin with a delightfully floral aroma, elevating any cocktail and all occasions.
Escape the conventional, and embrace the delectable.
Please enjoy the unusual responsibly.
