Hendrick’s Gin

I’ll be the first to admit that I am not a connoisseur when it comes to liquor, but I do occasionally enjoy a concoction or two.


I recently discovered Hendrick’s Gin at a small off-the-beaten-path Greek place downtown.  The bartender recommended it, so I took a chance, but I was a little surprised when it came with a cucumber rather than a lime.  Since I was at a Greek bar, I just figured it was a Greek thing and left it at that.  In fact I had a Hendrick’s gin and tonic at the Garage in Capitol hill and it came with a lime, so that reinforced the "Greek" line of thought.

Just today I went to the liquor store for some rum (Kelly was making toffee) and I spotted a bottle of Hendrick’s.  It piqued my interest, so when I got home I did some research.  Turns out that the producer of Hendrick’s actually recommends that it be served with a cucumber since it is infused with rose petals and cucumbers – I guess it brings out the flavor.  Whatever is happening, the end result is quite pleasant.  I know what you men out there are thinking – rose petals and cucumbers?  May sound foofy, but don’t knock it until you try it.

  1. Sounds good! You should try the gin made by Rogue Brewery/distillery (and their nut-brown rum). You can get both of them at the Rogue Brewery in Issaquah (on Sunset & Front Street), and both of them are INCREDIBLE! That rum is probably the best rum I’ve ever tasted. 😀
