Hendrick’s Gin has announced the launch of the GTR exclusive Hendrick’s Amazonia gin, which will be available beginning in March 2020.
Hendrick’s Amazonia is the next installment in Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie’s “Cabinet of Curiosities,” inspired by her quest to the Amazon rainforest in 2013. Lesley journeyed to the heart of the Venezuelan Amazon to explore and experiment with the rare botanicals of this unique eco-system. The liquid accentuates the existing signature cucumber and rose elements of Hendrick’s Gin, but also reveals bright, tropical flavor characteristics inspired by the native Amazon flora, says the company.
“I have always had a profound love for nature and a fascination with the wondrous botanicals and essences of the world,” said Hendrick’s Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie. “A number of years ago, I embarked on the adventure of a lifetime when I traveled to the Venezuelan Rainforest where I had the opportunity to explore and experiment with the local exotic eco-system. It was this unique and inspiring experience which motivated me to create Hendrick’s Amazonia.”
To celebrate the launch of this new expression, Hendrick’s Amazonia has partnered with One Tree Planted, a global environmental organization committed to reforestation efforts in the Amazon rainforest.
