Hendricks Gin Scotland

Hendricks Gin, Bedale, Scotland, UK

This spirit: flavouring components are treated differently – dried fruit (peels) and botanicals in a conventional still, rose petal in a Carterhead still, and I assume an extract of cucumber is added post-distillation; screw cap closure, 41.4% abv, 5cl, widely available, £4.80 (12/17)

WSET style tasting note
Appearance: clear and bright, water white intensity, colourless.

Nose: clean, light intensity, with aromas as they come, of lemon peel, juniper, dried rose bud, lemon sherbet, grapefruit zest, hint of white pepper; unaged. The addition of water makes no difference to the appearance.

Palate: dry, smooth alcohol, medium body, smooth texture, medium intensity, with flavours of dried orange and fresh lemon peel, low-key juniper and coriander, with hints of white pepper on the end of the finish. A medium length, showing some complexity.

Quality: good, smooth alcohol suits the delicate intensity, with concentration a little stronger, showing some complexity, leading to a sound medium length.
