Hendrick's Gin (750 ml)
Our Price: $34.99
A unique blend of 13 woodland spices. Juniper and wildflowers envelop the nose, while the taste is dry, yet vibrant - clean and nuanced by emerald grasses, golden citrus, and white pepper with a round, floral body. Crisp enough to enjoy straight and of course excellent in cocktails both classic and contemporary.

This gin has a fierce following, in part because of its quirky brand personality (see the Monty Python-esque website) and aggressive marketing among bartenders. But it lives up to the hype. Some might expect a more concentrated rosewater-cucumber profile, but it’s relatively subtle, with just a hint of cucumber mingling with juniper in the aroma, and white pepper, citrus and floral notes on the lingering finish.

This spicy, flavorful Brooklyn gin starts out light, with an upfront, fleeting, fruity sweetness, but powerful flavors of juniper, black pepper, coriander and anise quickly rush forward. Combine this with tonic or another mixer to tame the alcohol heat.

Named for the “first flower of spring,” the company describes the gin and its 18 botanicals as “an expression of this new life springing from the mountains and valleys of Vermont.”

The botanicals include juniper (a hallmark of gin), coriander, thyme, star anise, orris root, cardamom, nutmeg, sarsaparilla root, rosemary, allspice, fennel seed, grains of paradise, orange peel, damiana leaf, caraway seed, anise seed, and ginger.

S
ome gins can taste like alcohol that someone waved a juniper berry near. Snowdrop is smooth and its botanicals sit front and center.

This history-minded bottling was made in collaboration with Brooklyn barmen Damon Boelte and Maxwell Britten. It’s made from an 18th-century recipe, pot distilled using “exotic spices inspired by the British Spice Trade,” and finally, aged for 12 months in Bourbon and oloroso Sherry casks. All that adds up to a light gold hue, light sweetness (typical of the Old Tom style) and a pleasing, robust vanilla-mint profile with flecks of rosemary and lemon peel, finishing long and spicy. Sip or mix.

Inspired by England’s sloe gin and made with beach plums from Long Island, New York, this gin has round, sweet and tart flavors, with an earthy cinnamon touch on the finish. With its distinctive dark-cherry-juice color and aroma, this lends itself to making fizzes and other cocktails. It’s distilled from cane sugar, but it’s not supersweet.
