An Unusual Poison: Hendrick’s Gins New Quinetum


Hendick’s Gin is an alcohol unlike any other. It was created by Quaker City Mercantile as a work for hire for William Grant & Sons in 1998, and it’s hard to imagine a time when people went on picnics without the option of being able to make a Gin & Tonic. Just writing this sentence is causing my mouth to salivate. I sit here, daydreaming of a time where I’m out at a park on a warm summer day, the sun on my face, a light breeze through the trees, a hard salami & mustard sandwich in hand; and I’m mixing a Gin & Tonic for the lovely woman sharing the blanket with me. Pour yourself a gin & tonic, and check out how they came about this unusual poison: Hendrick’s Gins new Quinetum.
