While the Victorian’s celebrated the season of ardor by gifting each other unusual handmade puzzle purses, revealing a host of intricate poems and verses with every fold, Hendrick’s recommend a more palate pleasing flavor. This Valentine’s Day, Hendrick’s Gin brings you two unassumingly delightful tipples to charm and seduce your treasured loved ones – The Chelsea Rose and Flora Dora cocktails. A most unusual gin, Hendrick’s is infused with rose petals and cucumber, the twin essences of love and romance. While Hendrick’s Gin isn’t for everyone, it is the perfect peculiar addition to any Valentine’s soirée. Made with cloudy apple juice and sweet fresh raspberries and served with a slice of humble cucumber, the Chelsea Rose provides the ultimate refreshment. Or for those in the mood for something more tantalizing, tempt your loved one with the gently fizzing Flora Dora, with zesty lime and ginger beer.
