Hendrick’s Gin feels like it’s been around forever but was only launched in 1999. Produced by William Grant & Son’s in their Girvan Distillery and created by Lesley Gracie, a Yorkshire lass, who was hired by specifically to work in New Liquid Development across the whisky company. 10 years or so later the idea of creating a new super-premium gin was formed and the birth of Hendrick’s Gin had begun.
As well as the usual Juniper, Hendrick’s also boasts flavours of Bulgarian Rosa Damascena and specially selected cucumbers, yes you read that right, specially selected cucumbers. The flavours of Hendrick’s are precise and delicate which is why Master Distiller Lesley Gracie only produces 500 litres at a time, this way she has control over her careful artistry.
Hendrick’s uses 2 different stills, the Bennett and Carter-Head. Together they create an unusually smooth gin. The Bennett still soaks the botanicals in spirit overnight before distillation. The Carter-Head is heated by a steam jacket and gently steams the botanicals in a basket. As the pot begins to boil, vapours move up the short column through the botanical basket crafting the light and perfectly balanced flavours of Hendrick’s gin.
Not satisfied with just one gin, in recent years Lesley and the team at Hendrick’s have crafted a number of product extensions. If you’re a Hendrick’s fan you should get your hands on products like Hendrick’s Midsummer, Hendrick's Flora Adora, Hendrick’s Lunar and Hendrick’s Neptuna.

We treat all personalised bottles individually, taking our time and experience to set out your message to create the most impactful bottle decoration possible. This may include increase the size of some fonts within the message to pay particular focus on key lines or phrases, spacing message over extra lines and removing unnecessary punctuation.
If you can type it, we can engrave it! When using alternative languages it may be neccessary for us to alter the font to ensure all characters are supported, in these cases we use the closest style font to your original selection.
Unfortunatley we are unable to engrave emoji's or picture characters. Where these are added the character will be removed from your message.
We specially select the fonts we use. Once a bottle has been engraved the cut glass is then infilled with a special decorative silver paste. These fonts ensure we provide the optimum width and depth during the engraving process to creat maximum visibility once infilled.
The fonts we currently use are: Lucida Calligraphy, Lucida Handwriting, Verdana and Segoe Print.
