Hendrick’s Journey into the Botanical Unknown

Curious characters roamed around the settings while live performances kept guests amused and intrigued. But this time, Hendrick’s Gin had something new up its sleeve, and not just Sebastien Derbomez as the new Brand Ambassador. The botanical setting was to invite guests to take a trip into the peculiar and the unknown on the eve of when Master Distiller, Lesley Gracie was set to venture deep into the Venezuelan rainforest in search of new botanicals with intriguing flavours to create a new gin. Lesley Gracie is also responsible for creating the recently-launched Solerno Liqueur made from blood oranges.

Hendrick’s Gin are renowned for their fun-filled memorable and quirky events such as the Theatre of Curiosities, the Refined Courtship Clinic and The Adventurists’ Afternoon Tea just to name a few.

Hendrick’s Journey into the Botanical Unknown was held on Thursday 9 May 2013.
