Hendrick’s Gin Valentine’s Special: L’Amour Fou Cocktail

Posted on 14/01/2018 by coolbrandz

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Hendrick’s has devised the ultimate accompaniment to the Hendrick’s Gin and Tonic – Hendrick’s Valentine’s Day Heart-Shaped Cucumbers. Gin aficionados can surprise their lovers with a cocktail special featuring slices of these cute Valentine’s cucumbers.

Developed especially for the most romantic day of the year, the heart-shaped cucumbers are an ever so slightly eccentric way to express you most wondrous love. Hendrick’s loves a touch of the unusual and it only seems fitting that as this most splendid gin is infused with not only rose petals, but also cucumber (which is  the only garnish Hendrick’s recommends) that  we should celebrate St Valentines Day with a twist.

Valentines day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the high middle ages, when he wrote the poem Parlment of Foules  in 1382, Chaucer wrote:

“For this was on seynt Volantynys dayWhan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make. (For this was on Saint Valentine’s Day, when every bird cometh there to choose his mate.)

This poem was written to honor the first anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II of England to Anne of Bohemia. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, heart-shaped outline, and figures of the winged cupid.

A delightful Hendrick’s cocktail to celebrate this day of love with a touch of chili, a natural aphrodisiac, in case love is not enough…..

About Hendrick’s:

HENDRICK’S is a deliciously super premium gin, made with a number of unusual twists to deliver a most curious arrangement. Unlike ordinary gins, HENDRICK’S is distilled in Scotland, in miniscule batches.  Only HENDRICK’S is made with infusions of Cucumber and Rose petals, producing a wonderfully refreshing gin with a delightfully floral aroma. HENDRICK’S is the only gin made in a combination of a Carter-Head and copper pot still, creating a divinely smooth gin with both character and balance of subtle flavours.

Hendrick’s is made by William Grant & Sons – an award-winning, independent, family-owned distiller founded by William Grant in 1886 and still controlled by the fifth generation of his family. The Company distils some of the world’s leading brands of Scotch whisky, including the world’s favourite single malt Glenfiddich, the handcrafted range of ‘The Balvenie single malts’ and the world’s fourth largest blended Scotch Grant’s, as well as selected other spirits, including Tullimore Dew and ‘Sailor Jerry’.
