Our love affair started when we first spotted this amazing Hendricks Gin bottle overseas and was determined to find out if we could buy it in South Africa and luckily it was soon available.
We use it in many ways – with tonic and bitters for a Pink Gin at lunch time – or as a base for one of our favourite cocktails. The bottle is not too shabby either – great for your own flavoured olive oil (when it is empty!) as it keeps out the light.

Well done Hendricks!
approach to PRODUCTION
Small batch typically means 1,000 litres or fewer. Hendrick’s distills in miniscule batches of 500 litres, which gives our master distiller even greater control of her careful artistry.
Meet our DELECTABLE
Hendrick’s wondrous botanical signature consists of flowers, roots, fruits, and seeds from the world over. They function to complement and set the stage for our delicious duet of infusions: rose petal and cucumber.
A TALE OF TWO STILLS
Hendrick’s is the marriage of two different spirits from two rare and unusual stills: the Bennet still and the Carter-Head still. By combining the two, we are able to create an extraordinarily smooth gin that has the required character and balance of subtle flavours.
The INFUSION of
ROSE and CUCUMBER
No other gin tastes like Hendrick’s because no other gin is made like Hendrick’s.
We infuse our gin with the remarkable Bulgarian Rosa Damascena and specially selected cucumbers from the finest producers.
