For those bursting at the edge of ordinariness, the unusual Hendrick’s Gin is infused with the curious, yet marvellous, essences of rose and cucumber, delectably supported by no less than 11 botanicals from the four corners of the world. Created in 1999, this whimsical concoction produces a wonderfully refreshing gin with a delightfully floral aroma.

About Hendrick’s:

Hendrick’s is a delicious super premium gin, made with a number of unusual twists to deliver a most curious arrangement.  Unlike ordinary gins, Hendrick’s is distilled in Scotland in two utterly dissimilar sorts of still – Victorian Bennett and rare Carter-Head still, under the watchful eyes (and nose) of Master Distiller, Lesley Gracie. www.hendricksgin.com

Hendrick’s is made by William Grant & Sons – an award-winning, independent, family-owned distiller founded by William Grant in 1886 and still controlled by the fifth generation of his family. The Company distils some of the world’s leading brands of Scotch whisky, including the world’s favourite single malt Glenfiddich, , the handcrafted range of ‘The Balvenie single malts’ and the world’s third largest blended Scotch Grant’s, as well as selected other spirits, including Tullamore Dew and ‘Sailor Jerry’.

Starting off with well-organized things like no on the spot registration for any day thus, resulting in fewer crowds on the weekends and second, putting up the sign boards to guide people with the sessions being held in which area. The rest was the same like dressing up the Palace with colors, Book Store- to buy books that are being launched at the festival, Food Stalls- to munch on your favorite dish and Bazaars- to add more stuff to your closet. Now without further ado let’s talk about the sessions and the speakers and give you a brief summary of what all happened at 2019’s JLF.
