Hendricks Midsummer Solstice Gin - Spirits Worth Raising

Hendricks Midsummer Solstice Gin

Born in December 1839, William Grant became a cattle herder at the age of 7 in order to supplement his familys income. As a teenager, Grant apprenticed as a cobbler and a clerk, and in 1866, he joined Mortlach Distillery as a bookkeeper. For the next two decades, Grant managed the affairs at the distillery, while secretly learning the art of distillation. In 1886, he resigned from his position as distillery manager and, together with his seven sons, two daughters and one sporadically working stonemason, built his family distillery in Scotland.Over a century later, Charles Gordon, Grants great-grandson and successor at William Grant and Sons, purchased two unusual and incredibly rare stills at auction a Carter-Head Still (constructed in 1948, there are only a few in the entire world) and a dusty 19th-century Bennett. Although he didnt find a use for these stills initially, more than twenty years later he enlisted the help of master distiller and Gin scientist Lesley Gracie to assist in his quest to create something extraordinary from the stills. Finally, in 1999, Gordon and Gracie found the perfect combination and launched Hendricks Gin.Hendricks Gin is made in small batches of 500-liters or less, with both the Bennett and Carter-Head stills working their magic on Hendricks unique mix of botanicals, which include yarrow, elderflower, juniper, angelica root, orange peel, caraway, coriander, chamomile, cubeb berry, orris root and lemon.
