Hendrick’s is the perfect gin for this cocktail. It a small batch gin (seriously small at just 450 litres) giving their master distiller greater control, and the botanical signature of carefully selected flowers, roots, fruits, and seeds complements the rose petal and cucumber infusion, resulting in a smooth gin with depth of flavour and a delicate floral aroma. Gin, pepper and cucumber is the perfect combo. This is my new favourite Hendricks drink.
