Lesley Gracie | Hendrick’s
A chemistry graduate, Lesley Gracie worked in pharmaceuticals before becoming Master Distiller for the Hendrick's brand since its very beginnings. She was inspired by her love of flowers and plants, combined with the spirit of the fields of roses and the famous English cucumber sandwich to create a gin that would break conventions. The famous Hendrick’s bottle and its precious liquid, reminiscent of an apothecary container, is certainly at the origin of the new genre movement of this type of spirit, which catapulted its success. Ms. Lesley Gracie also made history by being inducted into the “Gin Magazine” Hall of Fame on February 25, 2021.
