Gin up for Valentine’s Day

Gin up for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is less than one week away. While the past year saw most of us spending more time than we would like apart, this year you might just be able to spend some alone time with your beloved.

Life is not a bed of roses, and given how the past year went, don’t we know that! Lighten up by giving your special someone a limited-edition Hendrick’s Bloom Box, featuring a 700ml bottle of Hendrick’s Gin encased in a box of preserved blooms.

Get your hands on a box at Boozeat and TheGoodstuff and have it delivered to your Valentine. It’s a gift any gin-lover would appreciate and surely beats just a boring box of chocolates!

Most couples may be dining in this Valentine’s Day. Amp up the occasion with a flirty pairing of candles and cocktails for your intimate candlelight dinner at home.  Purchase a 700ml bottle of Hendrick’s Gin from participating outlets to receive a handcrafted cucumber and rose candle in an intricate Hendrick’s teacup.

Setting the mood has never been this easy, mix up with two rose-themed Hendrick’s Gin libations – Kissed by a Rose and Rose Tinted Glasses, cook or order in some takeout and bask in the scent of cucumber and rose –  there, that’s your romantic night in covered!

For those with a flair for humour, Hendrick’s has the most peculiar ‘Cu-lossal’. Put on your Mad Hatter hat and complete a poem on the Hendrick’s Gin Facebook page to win the one-of-a-kind bouquet crate complete with 50 of the finest cucumbers, blooming roses and a bottle of gin delivered to your loved one on February 14.

Look-out for the contest post and submit your poem via a comment on the post. Contest ends Feb 10 at 23.59pm so make that last minute cut!

Hendrick’s, much like love, is the combination of two unique ingredients – rose and cucumber – that are curiously delightful apart but unusually delectable together. The unique taste of Hendrick’s simply would not be if not for the infusion of this peculiar and perfectly whimsical pairing.

Charmaine Thio, South-Eeast Asia Brand Ambassador for Hendrick’s Gin, quips: “The infusion of rose and cucumber in Hendrick’s Gin makes for a concoction that is undeniably peculiar and utterly delicious. With the season of love upon us, what better way to celebrate love and delightful pairings than with delicious tipples and gifts that are everlasting? This Valentine’s Day, we hope gin lovers will indulge in the many ways we are helping them celebrate differently this year.”
