This Midsummer Solstice Gin Spritz is *the* Drink for Spring

Need a drink by the pool? Same, though 🍹

We’re about ready to move our coats and boots out of sight and make way for warmer weather and drinks with the girls. In preparation for hot girl summer, we’re sipping on Midsummer Solstice – the latest limited-edition release by Hendrick’s Gin master distiller, Lesley Gracie. 

The Inspiration 

Described as floral and refreshing, this gin is inspired by the everlasting mystery of nature’s most effervescent blooms, making it perfect for mixed drinks and cocktails. While maintaining the original Hendrick’s recipe this unique gin is instilled with a secret selection of floral essences that enhances the liquid’s existing botanical bouquet which aims to capture the bright, aromatic intensity of a midsummer day. 

Fragrant Notes 

The Midsummer Solstice’s fragrant notes include zesty juniper with undertones of orange blossom. This bright, unusual gin is beautifully packaged in a purple bottle with botanical illustrations. You can buy it online and enjoy it at your next brunch or girls’ night.

No Other Gin Tastes Like Hendrick’s 

This is because no other gin is created the way Hendrick’s is made – with an infusion of Bulgarian Rosa Damascena and specially selected cucumbers.
