A Midsummer Dream

If youre looking for the perfect drop to savour as you relax this Labour Weekend, allow us to introduce you to something rather special

Just a few days away, the long weekend burns brightly on the horizon.

Labour Weekend usually marks the first shy beginnings of summer. Its a time for warmth on the breeze, sparkling seas, and branches laden with blossoms. Plus, a day off work to enjoy it all (assuming the weather plays ball!)

If youre looking for the perfect drop to savour as you relax this Labour Weekend, allow us to introduce you to something rather special.

The gin geniuses at Hendricks have been hard at work crafting their latest creation, Midsummer Solstice, and its set to be a serious crowd-pleaser (at least, as far as the crowd here at the Liquorland office are concerned).

Fresh from the Hendricks Gin Palace, Midsummer Solstice offers a flavour experience inspired by the height of summer. Made with a secret selection of floral essences, it attempts to capture the intoxicating aromas of Summer solstice, when the Earth is tilted closest to the sun. The creation of Hendricks Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie, Midsummer Solstice bursts with fragrant notes of zesty juniper, orange blossom, and exotic fruity ripeness.

It blooms on the palette, but its still unmistakeably Hendricks ideal for summer drinking, and wonderfully refreshing in a huge variety of mixed drinks, seasonal spritzes, and classic cocktails.

Pink gin took last summer by storm, and gins popularity shows no signs of slowing this year. Midsummer Solstice marks a turn towards sophisticated flavour blends and gorgeous elegance in the gin category. But sadly, like most of our favourite things about summer, Midsummer Solstice wont last. Its a small batch, limited-edition gin thats made to be enjoyed in the moment.

The endless Kiwi summer always ends so make sure you enjoy it to the full as you empty your glass.

To make the most of your Midsummer Solstice, try one (or three) of these delicious recipes:
