Hendrick’s Gin reveals a new limited release from its Cabinet of Curiosities. Carefully created using a wildflower bouquet that most entices our nectar loving friends, Hendrick’s FLORA ADORA gin offers a bright floral explosion to that signature Hendrick’s style.
FLORA ADORA is buzzing with an enticing aroma of enchanting flowers and a fresh, herbal character that is classically Hendrick’s in style. The juniper and coriander backbone are lengthened by lush green and wonderfully sweet floral characteristics.
The new gin was curiously perfected by Hendrick’s Master Distiller, Lesley Gracie, within the Hendrick’s Gin Palace in Southwest Scotland. Lesley loves watching the bees and butterflies at play in her gardens and how they seem to favour particular flowers. With FLORA ADORA, Lesley has used this favoured floral bouquet, that is most attractive to our precious pollinators, and used them to distil this refreshing floral infusion.
Lesley Gracie, Hendrick’s Master Distiller, comments: “I find it really relaxing to watch the butterflies and bees busy at work in the garden. It’s fascinating to me how they seem to settle on some plants more than others. Certain flowers are more enticing to the pollinators and it’s these blooms that I’ve used to create a botanical blend for Hendrick’s FLORA ADORA.”
Eimear Genin, Marketing Manager adds: “As with all of the Cabinet of Curiosities releases, the base is always Hendrick’s original Gin – made with the same 11 dried botanicals distilled in two utterly dissimilar stills and distinctly consummated with rose and cucumber. Any other additional botanicals are layered on top. In the case of FLORA ADORA, this is a floral bouquet that is particularly attractive to our flying friends.”
How to serve FLORA ADORA gin: Exquisite with tonic and 3 thin slices of cucumber, or perhaps try mixed long in a ‘Wildgarden Cup’ – a medley of fresh mint, cooling cucumber and juicy raspberries lengthened with a refreshing lemon soda.
Embrace the enchanting nature of the garden and its floral bouquet with Hendrick’s FLORA ADORA, available at leading supermarkets and off-licences across the Republic of Ireland now, including Supervalu and Centra. The new gin will also begin rolling out in premium bars across the country from the beginning of April.
Hendrick’s FLORA ADORA adds yet another flourish of flavour to the signature round house style by using a secret floral bouquet particularly attractive to butterflies and bees to create an enticingly fresh, lusciously floral gin.
Aroma: Buzzing with an enticing aroma of enchanting florals and a fresh, herbal character that is consummately and classically Hendrick’s in style.
Taste: The beautiful juniper and coriander backbone is lengthened by lush green, and wonderfully deep, sweet floral characteristics.
