A brief history
Gin can be traced back to the Middle Ages, with a spirit flavoured with Genever (the Dutch word for Juniper) referenced in a 13th Century Flemish manuscript. Like many spirits, gin was originally produced as a medicine to treat conditions such as dyspepsia and gout and was popularly drank by British soldiers fighting the Dutch in the 17th Century. It made its way to Britain in the early 18th Century, being produced as homebrew in many British homes.
The original HENDRICK’S GIN. Deliciously infused with Rose and Cucumber.
HENDRICK’S is an unusual gin created from eleven fine botanicals. The curious, yet marvelous, infusions of rose & cucumber imbue our spirit with its uniquely balanced flavour resulting in an impeccably smooth and distinct gin.
