Hendrick's is the daddy of fancy new wave gin, causing a storm when it first appeared over 15 years ago. This cucumber and rose-petal gin with its perfect pastiche Victoriana arguably played a large part in the hipster revolution that followed, but we shan't hold that against them.
Unlike handlebar moustaches, Hendrick's has a longevity that has enabled it to survive the backlash, and this is entirely down to the fact that it remains a very good gin that makes an extremely enjoyable G&T, which when we get down to brass tacks is all that really matters.
Hendrick's Gin & Tonic
An ideal distraction while enduring the terrible films on television at Christmas. Sublime simplicity itself. There’s a good reason the Hendrick’s Gin and Tonic, with its cucumber garnish, is so loved. Poetry in a highball.
