In 1860 the Bennett still that would be used to craft Hendrick's Gin was built in London by the best coppersmiths available. There may have only been a handful of Bennett stills ever built, but they quickly earned a reputation for producing a robust, flavorful spirit that was the great-grandfather of Hendrick's Gin. It would be some time before all the pieces of the puzzle would fall into place, but the Bennett still is the necessary first step. Years later the Bennett still is used in harmony with a Carter-Head still and a new spirit is born. In a beautiful dance of botanicals, Hendrick's Gin is brought to life with an unusual infusion of cucumber and rose that nips on the edges of the tongue without overpowering the senses. Best served neat or on the rocks, and always with the critical slice of cucumber on the rim of the glass, Hendrick's Gin has cemented their place in the world of premium gins.
