Angelica, juniper, lemon and orange peel, chamomile, coriander, cumin, guinea pepper, java pepper, iris root, meadowsweet, elderflower, cucumber and Bulgarian rose petals: these are the special ingredients that go into Hendrick's Gin.
Aside from the ingredients, the bottle that houses this eccentric gin is quite original. It is inspired, in fact, by Victorian-era medicine bottles, and the date on the label, 1886, refers to the year when the William Grant distillery was founded.
But why the cucumber? Legend has it that master distiller Ms Lesley Gracie was inspired by the British custom of eating cucumber sandwiches in gardens and parks.
In 2003 the Wall Street Journal declared Hendrick's the best gin in the world!
