Hendrick's limited edition Lunar gin is a mystical, magical and totally cosmic creation. The brand says the new Gin was: "conceived beneath the celestial light of the moon." And we can't wait to try it.

It's described as having a mellow spice and subtle citrus finish with an alluring complexity and a delightful warmth.

An excellent Christmas gift for budding astrologers and white witches, the brand says the tipple is best suited to: "refreshing sundowners, night-sipping, moon gazing and other sensible modes of contemplation." Which all sounds very glamorous and ethereal.

Hendrick's explained in the press release that Lunar’s creator - Master Distiller Ms Lesley Gracie - was inspired by the night time surroundings at Hendrick’s Gin Palace, in a tiny seaside village in Scotland.

Sharing the story: "One moonlit evening, whilst tending to the botanicals in her beloved hothouse, Ms Gracie realised that botanicals act differently under the shining moonlight, and was inspired to create this delectable liquid. 'There is something magical about the sky at night', she says. We couldn’t agree more."

Hendrick's suggests enjoying the gin in a 'Moonlight Buck' cocktail. Top 50ml Hendrick’s Lunar with premium Ginger Ale and garnish with 3 cucumber slices and a twist of lemon.

Sounds delicious.

Hendrick’s Lunar Gin is available at Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Asda or Amazon RRP £35. Available in 70cl, 43.4% ABV.
