Global modern gin brand, Hendrick’s has releasing a new limited-edition, sea-inspired expression called Neptunia.
Using a mysterious blend of refreshing Scottish coastal botanicals to create a crisp citrus finish, Neptunia is bottled at 43.4% ABV. Created at the Hendrick’s Gin Palace, which sits just two miles away from the rugged Ayrshire coast of southwest Scotland, NEPTUNIA was inspired by the enchanting melody of waves that entrance Ms. Gracie as she strolls the local beaches.
“I find listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore really therapeutic,” said Ms. Gracie. “Looking out onto the horizon and feeling the wind in your hair and the salty sea breeze on your face is just a great feeling – it’s so freeing, invigorating and calming all at the same time. I walk down the beach in Girvan every weekend with my dog and take in the sound of the waves and that particular smell you find no matter what beach you are on.”
To mark this release, Hendrick’s is launching a Magic-of-the-Sea Spa Kit to bring the refreshing nature of the sea directly into homes. Intended for groups of land-faring creatures, the spa experience comes with a Submersion Projector (creating a visual underwater atmosphere); Seashell Headphones (mimicking the aural sensation of being deep below the surface); Scottish Seaweed & Rose Exfoliating Mask (cleansing land-dwelling impurities from the skin); Oceanic Aromatherapy Candle (evoking the aroma of the rugged Ayrshire coast); and Highball Glasses and Octopus Cocktail Stirrers (hosting the undersea journey with cocktail in-hand). The kit may be purchased via the Hendrick’s Tiny Shop. Although a bottle of Hendrick’s NEPTUNIA is not included in the kit, magic-of-the-sea-seekers can easily obtain the limited-release gin from drizly.com.
“Most of my creations are based on memories – I play around with botanicals and combine them to recreate certain sensations. Hendrick’s NEPTUNIA for me is that freeing feeling of the sea bottled in a gin. You have that distinctive fresh character from coastal herbs, depth of flavor from the sea botanicals and an unmistakably clean, bright citrus finish that lifts in a round, refreshing way that makes it Hendrick’s.”
As part of the oceanic enchantment of the release, Hendrick’s, in partnership with Project Seagrass, is donating 100% of the sales from the Magic-of-the-Sea Spa Kit to help fund the conservation of seagrass meadows and raise awareness of the critical role they play in providing food and habitat for countless marine species.
