Flora Adora, is Hendrick’s Gin’s newest limited release from Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie’s Cabinet of Curiosities. Inspired by garden florals that entice pollinators, Created at the Hendrick’s Gin Palace on the Ayrshire coast of Southwest Scotland, Flora Adora was inspired by the endless fascination Ms. Gracie has for butterflies, bees and other nectar loving pollinators at play in her garden.
“I find it truly relaxing to watch the butterflies and bees busy at work in the garden,” said Ms. Gracie. “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 is these blooms that I’ve carefully selected to create a botanical blend for Hendrick’s Flora Adora.”
“When we first opened the Hendrick’s Gin Palace, I scattered wildflower seeds on the ground that come to life at different times of the year, and my hope is that Flora Adora will transport gin lovers to this lush garden where they too can experience all the pleasures of our garden,” added Ms. Gracie.
Hendrick’s releases only one limited-edition treasure from its Cabinet of Curiosities at a time, so seize the enchanting nature of the garden while you can. Residing in a familiarly-shaped Hendrick’s bottle with an eye-catching carnation pink label, Flora Adora is bottled at 43.4% ABV with a $39.99 SRP.
GSN’s Remarks: A curious nose with the juniper figuring prominently, but overlaid with a perfume of dried herbs and flowers. A somewhat peppery scent, but vaguely reminiscent of stepping into a floral shop. On the palate, the juniper is subtle, with surprising orange citrus notes leading into the herbal portfolio. Lightly sweet, with a definite flower petal sensibility. The effect is not overpowering, but rather the additional botanicals add an elegance not often found in gins. The finish is long with the flowery flavors staying close. A terrific new spirit that’s ideal for creative craft cocktails. GSN Rating: A
