A smaller bottle of this delicate and natural Gin.  No other gin tastes like Hendrick's because no other gin is made like Hendrick's. A wondrous botanical signature consisting of flowers, roots, fruits, and seeds from the world over. A gin bursting with Rose Petal and Cucumber flavours, it is the marriage of two different spirits from two rare and unusual stills: the Bennet still and the Carter-Head still. The combined spirits from the two make for an extraordinarily smooth gin that has the required character and balance of subtle flavours.

Hendrick's is a true small batch Gin, distilling in miniscule batches of 500 litres, which giving master master distiller Lesley Gracie even greater control of her careful artistry. The wondrous botanical signature consists of flowers, roots, fruits, and seeds which function to complement and set the stage for a delicious duet of infusions: petals from the remarkable Bulgarian Rosa Damascena rose and specially selected cucumbers from the finest producers.

Hendrick's Gin is a small batch gin distilled in Scotland. Infused with Bulgarian Rose and Cucumber, the unusual distillation process combined with an oddly delicious set of infusions yields a one-of-a-kind gin that is passionately loved by all over the world. Owned by William Grant and Sons, this eccentric Gin was born from a history in which an infusion of happenings created something wonderful - much like the creation of this superior gin.

In 1860, a Bennet Still is made by coppersmiths in London. Only a few Bennett stills were ever produced, however the few that were gained a reputation for yielding a spirit that is particularly robust and flavourful.

In 1886 William Grant, with his sons and daughters, built their family distillery in Scotland.

In 1948, The Carter-Head still destined for Hendrick's is manufactured by John Dore & Co. With a vapour-driven flavour basket atop a quite long neck, the Carter-Head engenders an exceedingly subtle, fresh and delicate spirit. Despite its fabulousness, the carter-head still has become quite rare. Only a few are known to exist today.

In 1966 On somewhat of a whim, Mr. Charles Gordon, Great Grandson of Mr. William Grant, purchases at auction two unusual stills: one, a phenomenally rare Carter-Head; and the other, a dusty 19th-century Bennet. (It will be a full thirty-three years before he actually determines what precisely to do with these peculiar contraptions).

In 1988 Mr. Charles Gordon enlists Ms. Lesley Gracie (a lover of all things curious and flavoursome) in his eccentric quest to invent an elixir with his two entirely different and very antique stills.

In 1999, finally, Mr. Gordon and Ms. Gracie achieve "a peculiar sort of deliciousness" by firing up both the carter-head and Bennet stills with an odd symphony of botanicals further enlivened with curious infusions of cucumber and rose. Against all odds, they concoct the odd perfection that becomes known as Hendricks's gin.
