FLORA ADORA by Hendrick’s Gin.
Hendrick’s Gin has announced the launch of FLORA ADORA, the latest release from the Cabinet of Curiosities. A delightful concoction infused with a seductively fresh floral bouquet, FLORA ADORA is set to enchant and excite with every sip.
FLORA ADORA is brimming with a tantalisingly floral infusion, offering a distinctly Hendrick’s experience perfect for casual get-togethers and those seeking the extraordinary this Spring. With alluring floral notes in full bloom, FLORA ADORA is the ideal companion for sunny afternoons and delightfully balmy evenings.
This gin, with refined floral fruitiness drifting through the Springtime air, will be on the shelves of the most sensational stores from the end of October 2023 as this season’s limited release. Hendrick’s only releases one treasured Cabinet of Curiosities bottling at a time – be sure to catch it in full bloom now while it’s in-store.
Crafted at the Hendrick’s Gin Palace on the rugged Ayrshire coast of Southwest Scotland, Hendrick’s Gin Master Distiller Lesley Gracie has created an exquisite gin by emboldening the Hendrick’s Gin signature combination of cucumber and rose with wonderfully sweet floral characteristics, creating a wonderfully balanced gin. Endlessly fascinated by the eccentric life of bees, Lesley Gracie cites her beloved flowers as the inspiration and infusion in Hendrick’s FLORA ADORA.
James McRae, Hendrick’s Gin Australian Brand Ambassador said, “We’ve crafted a gin that captures the essence of Spring, inviting gin enthusiasts and curious souls alike to experience a world of botanical wonders. For exquisite simplicity, Hendrick’s FLORA ADORA can be enjoyed with tonic and a slice of cucumber. To welcome a magical and immersive experience, try a tantalising floral fusion with the FLORA ADORA Wildgarden Cup. A balanced medley of fresh mint, cooling cucumber, and juicy raspberries lengthened with a refreshing lemon soda.”
Hendrick’s FLORA ADORA (RRP $86.00) will be available from Dan Murphy’s, BWS, Liquorland and First Choice from 23 October 2023.
