Hendrick’s Lunar Gin

A New Hendrick's Gin Inspired By Moonlight

This limited edition release from Scotland’s Hendrick’s Gin celebrates the recent lunar new year (February 12). Keeping with the moon theme, this gin is infused with a collection of unique botanicals described only as “natural oils of the night.” The aroma certainly evokes a cool night’s walk through the garden with a diverse and bright bouquet that includes jasmine, wisteria, and rose petal, along with a bit of lemon squeeze and subtler savory herbs. On the palate, the juniper finally arrives, along with some mild pepper and citrus, but the flowers aren’t far behind with a delicate grassiness, sweet mint, and licorice – a lively sipper but even better cocktail companion.
