This festive season, sit back and relax with a refreshing gin cocktail. Need some reasons to indulge? We’re here to help…
1. Gin culture is on the rise
Long gone are the days of William Hogarth’s print of Gin Lane, a print created in 1751 depicting the evils of drinking gin. Gin has become the drink of choice for both casual cocktail sippers and tipple connoisseurs. Beer and wine tastings aren’t the only options anymore – gin bars now give you the opportunity to become well-versed in all things related to the much-loved juniper berry based drink.
2. Gin cocktails taste amazing
There are so many ways to enjoy gin! Think of mixing it with exciting and surprising flavours to create cocktails with enticing names like the Cucumber Basil Smash, Cucumber 75, Boneshaker Gin Fizz, Chelsea Rose, and the Corpse Reviver. These are all available on the Hendrick’s Gin website, so you’ll definitely find something to suit your mood – and palate.
3. They are perfect for summer get-togethers
The good ol’ Hendrick’s and Tonic hasn’t remained a perennial feature by chance. It’s well known that this firm favourite, like other gin cocktails, is perfect for quenching that summer thirst or for shoreline sundowners. It is also easy to make, with only a few ingredients available.
4. Those relatives (yes, you know who we mean)
The festive season is also the time for seeing all your family again. Yes, all of them. A well-timed Hendrick’s G&T is the perfect ice-breaker – both literally and figuratively.
5. Your Christmas gift, sorted!
Hendrick’s Gin is different from other gins, as it is distilled in Scotland in small batches of only 500 litres at a time. The gin is infused with cucumber, rose petals and 11 other botanicals – making it a refreshing gin with a delightful, floral aroma.
With so much character and a balance of subtle flavours, you can’t ask for more!
Hendrick’s Gin has long guarded the mysteries of its most precious cucumber rituals, but today it is unlocking the doors to these secrets with the launch of its ‘Secret Order’ gift pack.
Available at selected retailers, at the RRP of R399, this limited-edition gift pack contains everything you need to perform the peculiar customs this mysterious gin requires.
The Secret Order gift pack includes a 750ml bottle of Hendrick’s Gin and a delightful porcelain teacup and saucer. With three different whimsical teacup designs available, you can collect a full set and enjoy a delightful infusion of flavours with friends.
