We have several customers, our landlord among them, who prefer the unusual taste of Hendrick's Gin over all others. Generally they require a cucumber garnish, as opposed to the traditional olive or twist. I like it myself and it has been on our back shelf ever since it came out in 1999. At Hell's Point Seafood in Annapolis, during a summer trip over the bay last year, I alerted to the huge dummy bottle of Hendricks they had perched on their bar. I coveted it immediately and began bugging my salesman for one.
He came through yesterday. The giant six liter bottle dwarfs the normal liter that we carry. Acquiring that cool bottle for our bar is the highlight of my winter - and doesn't that tell you something about the life I lead?
Shaken, not stirred.
