Nose: Huge, intense nose with an initial burst of crisp zesty botanicals harmoniously balanced juniper and coriander and a deep, surprisingly floral aroma of violets & rose.
Palate: Smooth and superbly balanced botanicals. Hendricks Gin is clean & dry without being in any way astringent. The complexity of the nose comes through in the taste, citrus and juniper with a subtle, lingering finish of cool, refreshing cucumber and rose.

This is a very fresh, sharp gin. It has a taste of greenness and botanicals. It makes a wonderful gin and tonic. But you must have it with the recommended slice of cucumber. The offer of the cucumber indicates the presence of a seasoned barman and is, I think the sign of a well run bar. The Gin Palace in Dublin regularly serves Hendricks in a wonderful Tea Pot and china cups. A real treat ;)
My wife & I adore this gin. Divine with a small slice of lime & 1 or 2 slices of fresh cucumber, which makes it ultra refreshing. Docked it one point because of the price....you could get 2 bottles of common-or garden Cork Gin. PS: Have never drunk it from the tea cup (yet!)
