Hendrick’s Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie’s latest limited-edition release from the Cabinet of Curiosities – NEPTUNIA – is a delectable sea-inspired sensory sensation.

Hendrick’s NEPTUNIA is a new delectable, limited release from Ms. Lesley Gracie’s Cabinet of Curiosities that encapsulates the magic of the sea in a gin.

This unconventional, intriguing ode to the sea emanates from the curious mind of Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie and uses a mysterious blend of refreshing Scottish coastal botanicals to express the magic of the sea in liquid form and creates a rich, evocative sensorial story. Unmistakably Hendrick’s, as it is based on the classic round Hendrick’s house style, Hendrick’s NEPTUNIA adds another wave of flavour with an enticing chorus of deeply refreshing Scottish coastal botanicals and combines a smooth, bright citrus finish with a deliciously distant sea breeze.

This gin that is as refreshing as the sea breeze will be sailing onto the shelves of most sensational stores and bars from 1 October 2022 as this season’s limited release. No matter how good Ms. Gracie’s creations are, Hendrick’s only releases one treasure from the Cabinet of Curiosities at a time – so catch it now before it disappears from the horizon.

Using her background in chemistry, proclivity for experimentation, and fascination about how different botanicals can be combined to create enthralling flavours, Ms Gracie has captured the invigorating magical sensation of being by the sea and bottled it in a gin.

Noting the enchanted melody of the waves as her inspiration for this latest release from the Cabinet of Curiosities, Ms Gracie said, ‘I find listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore really therapeutic. 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. I walk down the beach every weekend with my dog and take in the sound of the waves, and that particular smell you find no matter what beach you are on.’

‘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.

Ms. Gracie’s exceptional experiments will be available for a limited time only, so grab your bottle of Hendrick’s NEPTUNIA and soak up the magic of the sea with your curious companions while you can.
