Hendrick’s Lunar Gin is the second limited edition release from Master Distiller, Ms Lesley Gracie’s Cabinet of Curiosities at the Hendrick’s Gin Palace.
This most peculiar and unusual gin was conceived beneath the celestial light of the moon and yields an alluring complexity and a delightful warmth, which is best suited to refreshing sundowners, night-sipping, moon gazing and other sensible modes of contemplation.
The Hendrick’s Lunar Gin bottle retains the distinctive Hendrick’s shape, evocative of Victorian apothecary jars, yet the colouring is a sophisticated, deep blue reflective of the night sky. The brand iconography of Hendrick’s Lunar Gin includes curious celestial imagery that conjures a feeling of drinking a cocktail under moonlight.
Describing the inspiration behind Hendrick’s Lunar Gin, Ms Gracie said: “It’s a feeling. That feeling when it’s a real dark, calm night, there’s a clear sky and the stars are out. I like that feeling and wanted to bottle that sensation of sharing stories under the stars. In the still of the night, you can get all sorts of smells, there are certain flowers that only release their scent under the light of the moon. There is a peculiar sensory attachment to scents at night, your body doesn’t react to aromas in the same way as during daylight. Τhe darkness changes things, including how you respond to those around you, everything feels different at night.”
