The Process Hendrick’s Gin was launched by William Grant & Sons at a time when gin wasn’t the diverse, thriving category it is today. A clear callback to gin’s forbears, the apothecary style bottle suggests comparison to Genevers and a time when gin was a medicine. The Edwardian era advertising campaign has helped make the brand a stalwart both in bars and in homes. Process-wise the gin is distilled using a Carter-head still. No longer made, they were built with gin in mind. Botanicals are placed in a copper basket, and the vapor passes through them. It’s a very specific kind of “gin basket” designed by the Carter Brothers.
