Hendrick’s Gin has announced the launch of Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice, a new small-batch, limited edition gin – the first innovation in Australia since launching its flagship gin over 20 years ago.
The limited-edition gin is a delightfully floral incarnation of the original Hendrick’s Gin recipe inspired by nature’s most effervescent blooms. An enchantingly refreshing twist and floral ‘bouquet that is perfect for light drinking as Australia prepares for the warmer months and longer evenings ahead.
Hendrick’s has transformed Sydney’s iconic pub Paddo Inn, in Paddington with a one-of-its-kind takeover encouraging Sydneysiders to embrace their curious side during October.
The takeover will see Paddo Inn renamed for the first time to Paddo (G)inn with the venue artfully transformed by local flower artist, Dr Lisa Cooper, as a tribute to the sensory powers of the Midsummer Solstice and secret selection of exquisite floral essences.
Paddo (G)inn will feature specialty Midsummer Solstice cocktails and menu’s including the Most Unusual Lunch, a two-hour bottomless lunch offering diners the chance to escape the conventional and embrace the delectable.
As part of its delectably floral celebration, Hendrick’s Gin is offering Sydneysiders the opportunity to be among the first to try the new expression with a special cocktail, designed to make the most of Sydney’s summer drinking scene, with deeply floral notes at its heart.
Sydneysiders can collect a rose stem from various locations on October 5 from curious Victoriana characters frolicking the street in Surry Hills, Bondi and Paddington. Consumers can swap their botanical bouquet for a complimentary Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice Spritz, at participating venues including The Bucket List and The Winery, as well as Paddo (G)inn.
Hendrick’s will continue celebrate the unusual and reward curiosity throughout Spring transforming Sydney into a floral wonderland. Sydneysiders can enjoy a number of intriguing happenings taking place in and around the Paddington precinct. Including Hendrick’s most unusual floral London cabs and penny farthings which will roam the streets offering a delightfully unusual journey from the bar to the beach.
Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice will be available for a limited time in 2019 and is available for purchase in liquor stores and bars nationally. Head to the Hendrick’s Gin website hendricksgin.com for more detail.
