This G&T will have you feeling supersonic

Gin is now officially the UK’s favourite spirit. In case you hadn’t noticed the rounds of gin cocktails being served from chintzy teapots in gin emporiums sprung up in every town across the country, it’s also backed up by stats: last year, gin sales in the UK passed more than £2 billion for the first ever time. 

It’s understandable: it’s always a Good Time for a G&T.

And when you want a luxe G&T, we all know it’s Hendrick’s & Tonic you should ask for. 

Now, the high-end gin distillers at Hendrick’s have crafted a new spin on the timeless classic: the Supersonic Gin & Tonic. 

But of course, you’re asking: what makes this one “supersonic”? 

Well, just as it boosts us every morning pre-overnight-email-check, the addition of coffee kicks this cocktail into action. Think the G&T meets espresso martini: two classics made even punchier in a beautiful mixology mash up.

Try this G&T update and you’ll be feeling supersonic in no time…
