Hendrick’s NEPTUNIA is a new limited release from Lesley Gracie’s Cabinet of Curiosities that captures the enchanting magic of the sea in a gin.
This unconventional, intriguing ode to the sea emanates from the curious mind of master distiller, Lesley Gracie, and uses a mysterious blend of refreshing Scottish coastal botanicals to express the magic of the sea in liquid form, creating a rich, evocative sensorial story. Unmistakably Hendrick’s, based on the classic round Hendrick’s house style, Hendrick’s NEPTUNIA adds another wave of flavour with an enticing chorus of deeply refreshing Scottish coastal botanicals and combines a smooth, bright citrus finish with a deliciously distant sea breeze.
Hendrick’s NEPTUNIA will sail onto shelves in stores and bars globally from June 2022. But it won’t be around for long. As with all Lesley Gracie’s Cabinet of Curiosities releases, it’ll make waves at launch, pique consumers’ interest – playing into their penchant for experimentation. But limited really means limited, and when they’re gone, they’re gone to make room for the next equally evocative experimental offering.
Created at the Hendrick’s Gin Palace on the rugged Ayrshire coast of southwest Scotland, Hendrick’s NEPTUNIA Gin was inspired by the enchanting melody of the waves that entrance Gracie as she strolls the local beaches. Using her background in chemistry, proclivity for experimentation and fascination with how different botanicals can combine to create enthralling flavours, Gracie has captured the invigorating magical sensation of being by the sea and bottled it in a gin.
“It’s in Hendrick’s DNA to be unusual and so it’s perhaps not entirely unsurprising that Hendrick’s takes a curiously different approach to liquid innovation,” Hendrick’s Gin global brand ambassador Ally Martin said.
“Lesley is constantly pushing boundaries to create intriguing innovations that make for deliciously different drinks. People are captivated by the very personal stories Lesley tells through her liquid inventions and she draws them in again and again not by simple straight-forward flavour- led offerings, but by creating sensory rich worlds with her gins that transport drinkers to another time and place. With Hendrick’s NEPTUNIA Lesley has captured the magic of the sea in a gin. I’m looking forward to seeing how people experiment with this latest expression and the stories they’ll serve up with it.’
Hendrick’s NEPTUNIA will be available at Dan Murphy’s nationwide by the end of June (RRP $95).
