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’.

Things to remember when you visit Jaipur for the first time

Winter is the best season to visit Jaipur- the land of heritage cocooned in colours of Rangeelo Rajasthan and blessed with a warm climate. With a boom of travellers and tourists around the city at this time, Jaipur Beat makes sure that the guests in Jaipur do not go disappointed. Here are a few things you need to remember before you come to Jaipur.

  1. Jaipur is not so hot after all!

The most important thing you need to remember is that although situated in Rajasthan the desert state, Jaipur is not and hot as it is assumed to be. The days are pretty warm but the nights and early mornings are chilly. You don’t want to miss the early morning and night views in Jaipur while sneezing in your blanket. So do carry your woollens.

2. Food can catch you off guard.

When in Jaipur, there is a variety of Rajasthani food from Daal Bati Churma to Kachori, Samosa, Mirchi Vada, Laal Maas, Mirchi Tapore, Gatte ki sabzi to Ker Sangri for drool over. If you are not a regular fan for spicy food, avoid eating too much. The spices and fried food can give you a grumpy stomach and act as a spoilsport on your trip.

3. Don’t forget the camera!

A camera is something you surely shouldn’t forget when you travel to Jaipur because the city promises some breathtakingly rich-in-culture-and-colours sites. Like Amer Fort, Hawa Mahal, City Palace, view from nahargarh, Jal mahal, Albert Hall, Patrika Gate and so much more. You would definitely want to capture all the colours that Jaipur has to offer.

4. Beat the heat

Even though it’s winter, the days is Jaipur get a pretty Sun. So it is always a good idea to carry your sunglasses, cap, sunscreen as well as the water bottle with you because you surely don’t want to be getting sunburns.

5. Make space for souvenirs

You wouldn’t want to leave Jaipur without buying some authentic Jaipuri stuff like block print dresses, quilts, bed sheets, Jaipuri jootis, leather bags, Lac jewellery and other embellishments etc. Keep your luggage light so that when you leave Jaipur you have enough space to carry souvenirs.

If you plan to visit Jaipur in January make sure your dates clash with either the Kite Festival or the Jaipur Literature Festival. While one offers you to witness a sky booming with colourful kites all day and gleaming chandelier kites at night, the other one promises to be a sumptuous feast of ideas for your mind.

So whenever you come to Jaipur in the winter season, do consider these things for an amazing trip!

Happy travelling!
