Now offered in canada, the HENDRICK’S GIN Lunar, the second limited release gin from the ‘Cabinet of Curiosities.’ This most peculiar and unusual gin was conceived beneath the celestial light of the moon and is a delightfully smooth and alluring gin that offers a delicate balance of gentle spice, subtle floral notes with a soft citrus finish. Lunar is best suited for enjoyment during casual nights at home or as a curious companion for sundowners, or starry nights.

HENDRICK’S GIN Lunar: Inspired by the Moon

Hendrick’s Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie firmly believes that her singular collection of botanicals at the Hendrick’s Gin Palace in Girvan, Scotland, take on entirely different sensory characteristics under the influence of moonlight. “In the still of the night, you can get all sorts of smells, there are certain flowers that only release their scent under the light of the moon. There is a peculiar sensory attachment to scents at night,” said Ms. Gracie. 

One moonlit evening, whilst tending to the botanicals in her beloved hothouse, she was inspired to bottle the cosmic sensation of being at peace with nature under the moon and stars – thus creating Lunar.

The new bottle retains the distinctive Hendrick’s shape, evocative of Victorian apothecary jars. The label colouring is a sophisticated, deep blue reflective of the night sky and includes curious celestial imagery that conjures a feeling of drinking a cocktail under a moonlit sky.

An Intriguing Combination in the Bottle

The Canadian Brand Manager for Hendrick’s Gin, Jessica Mieczkowska, notes: “Hendrick’s Lunar offers a celestial take on the Original house style. The warmth of its botanicals, rich aroma of night-scented flowers, and subtle yet refreshing burst of citrus finish make Lunar an intriguing combination of the warm, the refreshing, and the unusual. Lunar is reminiscent of an alluring, warm and calm night under the stars encapsulated into a glass. Just like that magical moment, it’s only here for a limited time.”

Hendrick’s Lunar Gin is perfect for evening tipples that can be easily recreated at home. Ally Martin, Global Brand Ambassador for Hendrick’s Gin proposes, “A Moonlight Buck; a stellar combination of Hendrick’s Lunar(50 ml), ginger ale (like the Fever-Tree one), lemon juice (15 ml), garnished with cucumber and a twist of lemon.”
