In 1966, Charles Gordon, great-grandson of William Grant the famous founder of Grant’s whisky, fancied buying two stills at auction. It took him 33 years to know what to do with these rarities from the nineteenth century, the Carter-Head and the Bennet.


In 1988, he met Lesley Gracie, passionate about botany, and took her on his eccentric quest. His wish was to create an elixir with his two old stills. Various distillates were created but none of them matched up the expectations of Mr. Gordon and Ms. Gracie. They did not give up.


Eventually, in 1999, they developed a kind of “special delight" by simultaneously running the two stills with an original harmony of aromatic plants to which they added infusions of cucumber and rose. Against all expectations, they managed to create the strange perfection that became Hendricks gin.

Nose: juniper, perfectly adorned with fragrant zest and a deeply floral character. The initial freshness melts to reveal hidden shades of orange blossom and seductive exotic maturity.

Palate: a luxuriant flowering blends to reveal the inimitable style of the Hendrick’s house: the juniper, subtle spices and a sweet floral finish that exalt the mouth to give way to crunchy cucumber and the whisper of the rose.
