We love Hendricks at Sub 13, but how about a delicious twist on a Hendrick’s and tonic from our new Sub 13 Gin Collection? Let us show you…
We’re not alone in loving Hendrick’s it would seem, it is our second best selling gin here at Sub 13 and it is
probably the best know premium gin in the UK right now. Its unique botanical blend that includes cucumber and rose petal gives it a delicious aroma that we think is a bit like turkish delight, whilst the cucumber helps to carry the other more mainstream gin botanicals. You can read more about Hendricks in a previous post.
Many of you who are Sub 13 regulars will have tried our English Garden, but to coincide with the launch of 13, our brand new bar on the ground floor above Sub 13, we created the Sub 13 Gin Collection. This is a selection of 13 gin and tonic twists using some of our favourite gins and the amazing range of fever tree tonics.
The Hendricks gin and tonic twist uses the amazing Fever Tree Elderflower tonic, which combines delicate elderflower with the more astringent quinine for an amazingly balanced and refreshing flavour. This makes it an excellent mixer for Hendricks, because it perfectly complements the rose petals. We also add some fresh basil, because it works well with the cucumber notes. Along with slivers of fresh cucumber and rose petal to bring out those unique Hendrick’s botanicals. The drink is served in a gin balloon for optimal enjoyment of the gin and tonic bouquet, and all the garnishes. Light and fresh but with a great, lingering finish from the cucumber it is really quite moreish. Even better it is available 2-for-1 all evening as part of our Gin Collection!

We’re taking our love for Hendrick’s one step further this weekend, and throwing a Hendrick’s Garden Party on Easter Sunday! Kicking off at 6pm, we have free Hendrick’s cocktails on arrival, a special selection of Hendrick’s and Reyka vodka cocktails and our amazing resident DJ providing the tunes. The fun takes place in 13, our new bar, and the terrace. And if you fancy sampling the remaining drinks from the Sub 13 Gin Collection, then head for the dedicated Sub 13 Gin Collection Bar…
Cheers, and Happy Easter!
