Whilst there are a number of botanicals at play here, Hendrick's is most renowned for infusing its Gin with Rose and cucumber. Such are the botanicals' subtlety that you are left with an incredibly light and refreshing Gin. It took some 10 years to create this wonderfully delicate Gin and given the product's recent success it is great to see such patience finally pay off. Indeed it could be argued that its creation took a good deal longer than that. The stills used to make the Gin were bought in 1966 by Charles Gordon (Great Grandson to William Grant) but were left dormant for 33 years whilst it was decided quite what to do with them.

TASTING NOTES Crystal clear and transparent to the eye. On the nose, the sharp notes of juniper are followed by pleasing hints of tropical fruit and citrus flavors of Kumquat. At the mouth it is thin and slightly spicy, with a delicate call to ginger. Long persistence and excellent closure.
WHY WE LIKE IT It is produced in Spain but is clearly Japanese inspired. The Premium Gin "Akori" is flavored with exotic botanical elements, resulting fruity, charming and sensual. It can be used to prepare cocktails and long drinks, but also sipped smooth or with ice.

Gin David is the meeting point in a Venn diagram consisting of 'gin' and 'classic Italian sculptures from the European Renaissance' (a very small overlap, by the way).
This gin is made using a combination of 12 botanicals, including juniper, vanilla, grapefruit, orange, cinnamon, coriander, anise, elderflower, lime, iris, angelica and bergamot.
The resulting gin is presented in bottles shaped like the head of Michelangelo's David sculpture.
