Following an intrepid and perilous quest into the heart of the Venezuelan rainforest, Hendrick’s Gin master distiller Lesley Gracie has created an extraordinary batch of special edition gin – Hendrick’s Kanaracuni.
The fantastically absurd quest to find a remarkable and decidedly delectable botanical with which to create a new limited batch of gin, unearthed the rather exotic ‘Scorpion Tail’. It is now a key ingredient of Hendrick’s Kanaracuni, which is named after the village where the expedition team were based during their two-week research trip. Hendrick’s Kanaracuni will not be available for retail and just 560 bottles will be available across the world.
Commenting on her latest creation, Gracie, said: “The character of the Scorpion Tail distillate lends itself perfectly to combination with Hendrick’s. The flavour profiles complement each other seamlessly producing a finished gin which is both recognisable as Hendrick’s but evidently different with deeper floral, spice and green character.”
The new liquid will be bottled at 44% v/v in a special edition bottle. With such a limited supply of the new liquid, only a very small number of bartenders, media and consumers will be able to try the rare liquid at suitably odd tasting events and competitions around the world from April 2014 onwards.
