Holi, the joyous festival of colours and celebrations is one of the most awaited festivals in Jaipur. Everywhere you can spot Jaipurites purchasing different shades of colours, pichkaris and how can we miss everyone’s favourite water balloons! In every temple, you can see Phaag utsav being celebrated with great razzmatazz.

You must be thinking that every Jaipurite loves this festival, you got that wrong! Some people believe that the colours of Holi are not good for the skin and they are harmful to the environment too. But guess, what with proper precautions taken, this festival is as healthy as you can think. Here are the reasons why.

–          Playing Holi makes you summer ready

After a long, tiring and lazy winter that we all face, the singing and dancing at Holi makes us all summer ready. Our body loosens up a bit and we become more active after the celebrations.

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’.
