Hendrick’s, much like love, is the combination of two unique ingredients – rose and cucumber – that are curiously delightful apart but unusually delectable together. The unique taste of Hendrick’s simply would not be if not for the infusion of this peculiar and perfectly whimsical pairing.

Charmaine Thio, Southeast Asia brand ambassador for Hendrick’s Gin, says, “The infusion of rose and cucumber in Hendrick’s Gin makes for a concoction that is undeniably peculiar and utterly delicious. With the season of love upon us, what better way to celebrate love and delightful pairings than with delicious tipples and gifts that are everlasting? This Valentine’s Day, we hope gin lovers will indulge in the many ways we are helping them celebrate differently this year.”
