WHAT: Hendrick's Gin Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Ayershire, Scotland
WHY: With its steampunk packaging, it's not surprising that a lot of dripsters favour Hendrick's. Trendy booze is just about the most boring thing in the world, but this gin, years after its launch, continues to do well and deserves our attention. Cucumber, yes, but even more interesting is the rose petal element. Different, expensive but very nice.
PRICE: 750 ml/$41.95
