Interesting, but ultimately not my thing
Without the whole "cucumber is a prime botanical" spiel being shoved down your throat at any and every opportunity, I would defy anyone to actually notice the flavour being there. I went to a blind tasting, with 25 other bartenders and I don't think that any of them actually picked out the cucumber - the overriding impression at the blind tasting was that this was a flavourless, uninspiring, weak gin. In fact, this was picked as the poorest of the gins in the test, almost unanimously. Others in the test were (if I remember correctly) Beefeater, Tanqueray, Tanq 10, Bloom, Sipsmith, Bulldog, Sloanes and 209. I am currently in the process of removing this from our bar and educating customers that, just because something is marketed well (and to be fair, it is marketed VERY well), it does not make it a quality product.

Rose and cucumber are extremely prominent in both the flavour and scent of this gin. This adds an interesting flavour for martinis, and makes a pretty killer G&T. Ultimately though, juniper tends to take a back seat to the other flavours. I feel as though, while interesting at first it does not have as much potential for versatility or a true quinine and juniper flavour that normally defines gin. This gin is best used for G&T's, as the lime really contrasts the smooth cucumber flavour.

Unusual flavor,a taste to cultivate.I have yet to taste it with tonic.

I don't personally enjoy the good old G&T, but Hendricks with tonic and a slice of cucumber is the best. Cant beat this drink.

good but watch how you mix it
Good with tonic, a slice of lemon and cucumber, or even straight, however once you venture out into mixing with juices or colas everything unique about it dies and becomes offensive.....

My Absolute Favourite!
I love gin and have tried lots of good ones but I always come back to Hendricks. It has a faint scent of rose and works so well with cucumber.

A drink for a "Night at the Opera"
The best ive had!!
Arriving early at the Lincoln Center for the evenings performance of 'The Barber of Seville" A the Metropolitan opera, I had the most pleasurable expierience @ P.J. Clarkes while accompanying three lovely ladies. While perusing the beverage menu, To my delight i spot their Cucumber Martini Made with Hendricks. I had recently purchased a bottle but had yet to imbibe in it. Well nothing else mattered after the first sip. My three ladies observing my delight at my Martini. They asked for a sip and were mesmerzized by it's taste and it's effects on them. Before you know it, the waiter is currying countless deliveries of their new favorite liquid libation. The opera was the mets first english presentation that just wasn't the same. Nothing could ever be the same after our pre opera Hendrick's cucumber Martinis!

I tried this a few years ago and it instantly converted me from a take it or leave it guy, when it came to G&T, to being my drink of choice. Served with loads of ice, slimline tonic and a slice of cucumber there isnt anything more refreshing especially on a hot day.
Adding slices of Lemon or lime just ruins it!!

I am not a great fan of gin, nor am I a fan of cucumber, but for some reason this really works.

This gin is great for mixing when you're trying to exhibit the flavor of the gin and not run it over with sugar water. It is subtly sweet and fruity - so not as dry as your average beefeater or bombay sapphire - but still dry. This is the gin of choice in most mixology bars around LA and I understand why.

Seems gimmicky to me. Doesn't mix well in cocktails (unless cucumber is the base), most bartenders do not recommend it.

Drink neat with lots of ice and a slice of cucumber. refreshing and innovative gin
