Hendrick’s Gin has unveiled Neptunia, the latest limited release from Master Distiller Lesley Gracie.
Created at the Hendrick’s Gin Palace, located on the Ayrshire coast of southwest Scotland, Neptunia is infused with a blend of coastal botanicals and has a crisp citrus finish, according to the company.
“I find listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore really therapeutic,” says Gracie. “Looking out onto the horizon and feeling the wind in your hair and the salty sea breeze on your face is just a great feeling – it’s so freeing, invigorating and calming all at the same time. Most of my creations are based on memories – I play around with botanicals and combine them to recreate certain sensations. Hendrick’s Neptunia, for me, is that freeing feeling of the sea bottled in a gin. You have that distinctive fresh character from coastal herbs, depth of flavor from the sea botanicals and an unmistakably clean, bright citrus finish that lifts in a round, refreshing way that makes it Hendrick’s.”
“Although the sea has been around for millions of years, we believe this is the first time its magic has been captured in a gin,” says Vance Henderson, Hendrick’s Gin National Ambassador. “After extensive research through cocktail creation, I can confirm that Neptunia is deliciously versatile. It shines when simply mixed with tonic and in highballs like a Neptunia Fizz, while also serving as a beautiful base in our Bayside Sparkling Sangria.”
Neptunia is bottled at 43.4% ABV. The suggested retail price is $39.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
