still a place for the big boys

Inevitably, working on a title like Gin Magazine, the question of, ‘Which gin is your favourite’, gets asked more times than you care to remember. Dare I admit to it, but I tend to ask the same question when visiting distilleries, at an event or even amongst friends. It’s one of those loaded questions where your reaction to whatever answer is given to you is already formulated in your head before you’ve finished asking it. When someone tells you that they love ‘insert global drinks giant brand here’ and you worry that it’s the only one they’ve ever tried, or that the person you’re speaking to is a raging philistine. Should they mention ‘insert super-quirky brand name here’, and either they have tried far too many gins in their time…

hendrick’s unveils new distilling home

In arguably its most significant development since launching in 1999, Hendrick’s has revealed a new distilling home, befitting a gin famed for its invention and personality: The Hendrick’s Gin Palace.

As an engine of innovation, it is an institution dedicated to exploration and discovery where Hendrick’s master distiller, Lesley Gracie, will have the creative freedom to experiment and conceive new Hendrick’s variants, as well as being the distilling home for the brand. The distillery has doubled its capacity to meet demand and the extraordinary facilities that are now available to Lesley will allow her to explore what she can do with the brand.

a classic comeback

It would be difficult for even the most casual observer of the gin world to have failed to notice the current trend sweeping distilleries, bars, and homes across the world: namely, flavoured gin.

Terroir is common in wines and whisky, but gradually it’s creeping into gin too – and that’s worth celebrating, as we search for brands with authentic stories rooted in a local place. For others, the pace of innovation in gin means that the category is forever interesting and offers something fresh. Copper Rivet Distillery ticks all of those boxes. It’s a place where all of those arguments are correct, nor definitive. Where all the cogs mesh to create something bigger. The sense of things coming together is key at Copper Rivet and to understand the brand and its gin, you first of all…
