Hendrick's Gin is a popular liquor choice for many Singaporeans who are fans of the famous gin and tonic cocktail. Light, refreshing and thirst quenching, what's wrong with this cocktail? But have you tried anything other than the original Hendrick's Gin made from eleven delicate botanicals?
Hendrick's Original Gin may be the brand's favorite gin, but why not give the other gins a try too? Who knows, you might add another bottle of gin to your favorites list. Read on for a full list of Hendrick's gin for your next weekend soiree.
Hendrick's Summer Solstice
Hendrick's Midsummer Solstice Gin celebrates nature's most vivid flowers in a bottle. It is infused with natural flavors and flower essences after distillation, and its tasting notes are sweet and extremely fruity on the nose. The scent begins with raspberries, roses, and strawberries. You will taste lavender, strawberry and rose hips early on the palate and a spicy hint of sandalwood and pine on the mid palate. At the same time, the fruity notes become drier and take on a prickly pear and dragon fruit flavor. It ends with soft spices, smooth pine and leaves the palate feeling fresh.
Hendrick's Midsummer Solstice is a limited edition small batch gin bottle from Hendrick's Gin. The brand likens it to a fleeting holiday romance with the lifespan of an ephemera. Grab this exclusive gin before it's gone forever.
How to enjoy it

Deeply floral and richly aromatic, Hendrick's Lunar Gin is an intriguing combination of the refreshing and the warm, specially designed to be savored on a special night watching the sun go down and admiring the moon charging the sky, perfect for a night of slow drinking and nice conversations.
The creator of Hendrick's Lunar, Lesley Gracie, describes this special bottle as one with "a rich scent of night-scented flowers against a background of a refreshing burst of citrus."
Its nose is gently spicy with hints of lavender, hibiscus and rose, staying true to the botanical gin brand. On the palate it is spicy with soft juniper, lemongrass and rose water and a touch of orange in the background. It ends with vanilla, orange and lemongrass.

According to Hendrick's, this is what Hendrick's Gin would taste like in a parallel universe. The gin is a reimagining of the original Hendrick's Gin, infused with additional extracts of quinine, wormwood and blue lotus flower, and the result? An exquisite gin that sits firmly on the palate.
While Hendrick's Amazonia is distilled in the same way as the original Hendrick's Gin, the brand took it in another direction by infusing flavors found in tonic and vermouth plus a hint of blue lotus that balances the overall flavor. The trinity of essences creates a complex gin with surprising brilliance and a long finish, evolving from floral to a deep and seductive bitter note.
