Unusually infused with cucumber and rose, along with the same bouquet of 11 botanicals as its smaller counterparts, the new 1.75 L bottle is fit for a crowd, not just a few.
“The gin category is currently one of the fastest growing spirit categories in Canada,” comments Jessica Mieczkowska, Canadian Brand Manager, Hendrick’s Gin. “The release of the new large format of Hendrick’s Gin caters to the growing demand for gin and provides the opportunity to purchase the world’s most unusually odd gin in vast volumes."
Hendrick’s Gin is already recognized as one of the leading premium gins across the world, and the 1.75 L offering is the newest extension of the “most unusual gin” family, that includes the 750 mL original release, as well as a smaller 375 mL bottle release. The 1.75 L is now available at select retailers in British Columbia and Ontario and will be in Alberta later this Fall.
The 1.75 L maintains the same black apothecary style bottle of the original 750 mL bottle of Hendrick’s Gin. The embossed handle grip and unusual spout make it the perfect bottle to ensure ease of pour at every social sharing occasion. The 1.75 L bottle is 15 inches long, 10.5 inches tall and 10 inches wide with a gross weight of 5.5 lbs.
Hendrick’s Gin is sublimely clean and dry, yet the marvelous complexity of the nose comes through in the taste. Take note of the citrus and juniper with a subtle, supernaturally pleasurable lingering finish of cool refreshing cucumber and rose.
