Hendrick's MartiniRecette du Cocktail
The Martini, that singing symphony of liquid, was described as “the elixir of quietude” by author E. B. White. The origin story of this drinkable poem is a contentious issue, and as emotive and important a subject as how best to prepare the drink itself. Since its invention sometime in the 19th century, the Martini has slinked across our collective imagination in literature, cinema and song. Here we meet the flavours of gin in a primal pure form. This classic of classic cocktails, this melodious master, is further heightened when it entertains Hendrick’s Gin herself.
The Martini is not the highest point of human achievement, it is far more important than that.
