We love Hendrick’s, but the £28 or £29 for 70Cl is quite steep and it never seems to be on offer… Don’t be fooled by the bottles that are around £16 to £18 – they are only 35Cl!!
Hendrick’s Gin is one of the most popular flavoured gins on the market. It gets its distinctive taste from the infusion of cucumber and rose to the gin after distillation. Hendrick’s say it should be served in a hi-ball glass over ice and garnished with three cucumber slices. Quite specific.
I searched for other Gins that should be served with cucumber and are made by infusing something like cucumber and rose. Here they are:
Whitley Neill Aloe & Cucumber Gin – £24
