About This Gin

The Half Hitch story started in Camden Lock in 1869, where distilleries and warehouses were everywhere to be seen. The industry, after it collapsed here, has since been reinvented, and rejuvenated, within the Camden Lock area. The company name was inspired by the round turn, and two half hitches used to moor up the barges along the Camden dock.

Our Opinion

This gin has a very distinctive appearance, as well as flavour, and is easily recognisable. It’s got a spicy taste with a hint of black pepper, which is somewhat unusual. It’s a pleasant gin to drink and we will definitely be trying it again.

About This Gin

Hendricks is produced in small batches in a remote Scottish distillery. Typically, when you hear the words small batch, you think 1,000 litres or fewer. With Hendricks, this is only 500, meaning the master distiller has full control! To give Hendricks its’ unique flavour, it is distilled with carefully selected rose and cucumber.

Our Opinion

We were in the local ‘spoons and doubles of Hendricks were being handed to us at alarming rates. It is a much better tasting gin than most of the other London Dry’s that are frequent residents of a pub’s spirit shelf. The infusion of the rose and cucumber is like nothing else. We always like something different!
