Gin might just be the most versatile spirit around. You can use it in cocktails, mixed drinks, and even neat. But Hendrick’s gin takes versatility to a whole new level. This Scottish gin is made with two different stills – the Bennett still steeps its botanicals overnight before distillation, while the Carter-Head has its botanicals in a basket up in the still neck, steaming them gently. The result is a unique flavour that features juniper, cubeb berries, elderflower, chamomile, angelica, lemon peel, orange peel, coriander, yarrow and orris – plus an infusion of cucumber and rose petal.
Hendricks gin for sale – Are your tastebuds ready for this spectacularly infused gin?
If you’ve not tried Hendrick’s before, you’re in for a treat – it’s a perfectly balanced gin that’ll go well with a mixer of your choice, as well as any slices of fruit you might have to hand.
While many gins are made as quickly as possible, William Grant & Sons (the Scottish owners of Hendrick’s) do things a little differently…
Firstly they make one batch of gin in an old-fashioned pot – which makes it nice and strong. Then, they make another batch with a Carter Head (an old-fashioned tool for making spirits) – which creates a more refined spirit. Once done they infuse both gins with their signature botanicals and then marry them together in a ceremony of Rose and Cucumber.
Sure, it seems like a lot of effort to go to but grab yourself a glass and you’ll see why they do it that way – highly recommend by the WineFolk team!

A guide to Hendricks flavoured gin and Hendricks gin ingredients
Which one are you going for first?
Hendrick’s original blend is a mix of eleven finely-sourced botanicals – for those new to gin, botanicals are flavorful & aromatic natural ingredients used to make gins taste good. Hendrick’s is a little different to many gins because it uses an infusion of rose & cucumber, giving it a uniquely distinctive burst of flavour.
Hendrick’s Neptunia Gin is perfect for those who like a nautical edge to their gin… because who doesn’t right, right? This is an exciting, limited collaboration with Lesley Gracie – a Master Gin Distiller. It’s infused with a lot of botanicals sourced from her coastal home in Ayrshire – look out for a smooth Citrus finish.
Hendrick’s Lunar is great for those who are looking for a nightcap. Again, this is a collab between Hendrick’s and Master Distiller Leslie Gracie. Its blend of warm baked spices and citrus makes it a perfect winter warmer.
Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice is another limited edition. This one is perfect for a sunny day – pack a picnic or have some friends over for brunch and you’ll find this a great companion. It’s deliciously floral!
Hendrick’s Orbium is a rethinking of Hendrick’s original blend – a fascinating mixture of Quinine, Wormwood and Lotus Blossom. Those ingredients all marry together to offer a surprisingly sweet gin with a crisp, floral finish – making it about as complex as a gin can be.
If you want to find out more, we’d recommend a Hendricks Gin Distillery tour.
Currently, there’s no Hendrick’s Rhubarb Gin, nor is there a Hendrick’s Blood Orange gin or a Hendricks rose gin – but we hope they’ll come up with some soon.
What about the best tonic for Hendricks gin?
Our recommendations will prove just the tonic!
Tonic water is a shot of gin’s best friend. The bitter yet refreshing taste works perfectly to unlock the complexities of a good gin.
Fevertree is one of the more premium tonic water brands. Their marketing slogan is very clever and very true – if ¾ of your drink is the mixer, mix with the best!
Schweppe’s is also a classic and you can find it just about anywhere in the UK. There are also diet and low-calorie versions if you’re trying to make your tipple as sin-free as possible.
Most supermarkets will also have their own brands available if you’re on a bit of a budget and some even say that sparkling water works just as well, but we’ll let you decide.
Ginger ale is another good swap if you can’t find or don’t like tonic water. The fiery after-taste is a nice complement to floral gins, in particular.
Juice can also work – if it works for Snoop Dogg, it’ll work for the rest of us, right? Orange, Mango, Apple and Pineapple juices would be our top recommendations.
Cordials are another popular choice. Lime cordial works best in our opinion, especially if you’ve got a slice of lemon and some ice on hand.
Those are just our choices! You’re welcome to experiment and be sure to let us know what works best for you.
