Hendrick’s Gin X AAFW

When globally acclaimed gin brand Hendrick’s invited me to an opulently decadent cocktail hour during this years Australian Fashion Week to celebrate the launch of their new Lunar Gin I immediately jumped at the chance, and why wouldn’t I? Not only is the brand one of my favourite things to drink – yes I am a gin fanatic, but the chance to see their newest creation up close and personal was just an experience I didn’t want to miss so I added it to my very stacked calendar of events. Preluding the event with the allure of an experience into the deeply unusual and peculiarly marvellous world the brand is synonymous with I wasn’t intrigued to see just what they would come up with and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed and after being greeted by the host I knew I was in for one hell of a ride!

After receiving an ornamental key and being told that at the end of the adventure it would unlocked a treasure I would hold valuable I entered the beautifully curated space ready to experience the full Lunar experience and I got exactly that! While teaching the group of the brand’s heritage, just why they had created this beautifully crisp new taste and the origins of the ingredients used to create this special gin the host, and brand ambassador – Luke, mixed us up a treat that honestly I wish you all could taste right now – a gin based Negroni that would have even the biggest gin haters hooked! Talking us through the methods used to create the masterfully curated cocktail we were indulged to a first tasting of the gin while offered a little insight as to where the globally phenomed brand is heading and the chance to ask a master gins-man all about the brand itself which was just as delightful as you can imagine – and all before I got to open the aforementioned treasure, which included a bottle of this beautiful new gin for my very own.

If you missed how Hendrick’s launched their newest curated gin, the Lunar Gin, at this years Australian Fashion Week then never fear – I have a first look at all the exciting events that happened below, including a first-look at the new gin for yourself. If you are yet to try it then what better time with the long weekend coming up – I can assure you you won’t be disappointed, so what are you waiting for head in-store and ask for some Lunar magic…
