As the name suggests, Hendrick's Flora Adora is a floral gin, released on 1st March 2023 as part of Hendrick's Cabinet of Curiosities limited edition collection.
Lesley Gracie, Hendrick's distillery, says of her gin "I find it really relaxing to watch the butterflies and bees busy at work in the garden. It's fascinating to me how they seem to settle on some plants more than others. Certain flowers are more enticing to the pollinators and it's these blooms that I've used to create a botanical blend for Hendrick's Flora Adora."
Designed to be served in a G&T or mixed as a Wildgarden Cup with:
50ml Flora Adora
25ml Lemon juice
25ml Simple syrup
6 Mint leaves
3 Cucumber wheels
Method: Add all ingredients to glass over cubed ice. Stir and garnish with cucumber, mint & raspberries.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 02/03/2023
Pungent floral rose water with lavender, vanilla and a touch of Raspberry Mivvi ice cream. Piney juniper notes are very subdued.
Happily, juniper and coriander are more forward on the still very floral palate with grassy cucumber and peppery spice.
Floral notes continue through the long delicately spicy, grassy, juniper finish.
As the folk at Hendrick's say, this is a "lusciously floral gin". And if you desire such a gin then Flora Adora might well be for you. For others, myself included, it smells more like soap than gin, and when mixed with tonic it produces what could be described as a "soapy G&T".
Bottle Size: 700 ml
Closure: Agglomerated cork stopper
