Hendrick's Gin Voyages into the Unusual

Photos: Last week we took a Voyage into the Unusual with Hendrick's Gin's fun fetes and cocktail academy.

Hendrick's Gin Voyages into the Unusual


Last week the Hendrick's Gin brought their delicious cucumber and rose infused gin to our fair city along with a cast of intriguing characters for their Voyages into the Unusual gatherings. Trust gallery in Old City was transformed into the world of Hendrick's Gin providing a fun glimpse into this very unusual world that celebrates those with peculiar tastes. 

The festive voyages included a delightful cocktail academy, wherein their brand ambassador Jim Ryan led a small class through the history of Hendrick’s Gin, and taught us how to make two cocktails and one punch recipe. The following two nights parties were held, lucky revelers got to sip on handcrafted cocktails prepared by some of Philly’s finest bartenders including Phoebe Esmon and Katie Loeb. 

The gin itself is a lighter floral style of gin made with 11 botanicals (Caraway Seeds, Juniper, Orange Peel, Coriander, Yarrow, Lemon Peel, Chamomile, Elderflower, Angelica Root, Orris Root and Cubeb Berries), infused with cucumber and rose, and distilled in a small town in Scotland. It mixes very well in modern cocktails, and has a subtle taste that’s very refreshing in a martini or gin and tonic.
