‘Moonlight Buck’ cocktail with the new Lunar Gin from Hendrick’s

Must Try

There’s a new gin under the sun. Or under the moon, we should say. Hendrick’s now comes with Lunar Gin: a mysterious, limited edition gin with which you can make this delicious ‘Moonlight Buck’ cocktail, for example.


For 1 cocktail:

  • 30 ml Hendrick’s Lunar Gin
  • 150ml good quality ginger ale
  • 15 ml lemon juice
  • 3 cucumber slices
  • A piece of lemon peel
  • Ice

The greenhouses of Hendrick’s gin

Miss Lesley Gracie, who holds the title of ‘Master Distiller’ at British Hendrick’s, tells us enthusiastically about the new Lunar Gin. The distiller can often be found in Hendrick’s two glasshouses, where all the botanicals that go into the gin are grown.

It all sounds quite fascinating: Hendrick’s has a greenhouse with a tropical climate and one with a Mediterranean climate. According to Miss Lesley Grace, there are two completely different aromas in those greenhouses during the day and at night. In the evening, the greenhouse with the tropical climate has a scent that reminded her of the rainforest in Venezuela. And she wanted to capture that evening scent in a gin.

Lunar Gin

The result is Lunar Gin: a limited edition gin that contains both deep, flowery notes and spicy elements. It doesn’t seem very different from your trusty old Hendrick’s gin at first sip, but then flowers and pepper reveal themselves, which linger on your tongue and leave a spicy aftertaste.

The Lunar Gin is now for sale and that’s great, because then you can immediately make this delicious ‘Moonlight Buck’ cocktail at home.
