Hendrick’s Gin and Flamingo Estate, purveyor of Mother Nature’s most precious gifts and home to one of America’s most sought after gardens, have partnered to launch Botanical Pleasures, a box designed to turn your next gathering into a pleasure garden party filled with refreshing encounters. Botanical Pleasures is inspired by the brand new release from Hendrick’s Cabinet of Curiosities, Flora Adora, and offers an explosion of the senses with bursting floral aromas, mood-setting oils, exquisite tastes, and soothing sounds.
“Victorian pleasure gardens once represented a reprieve from daily life, and this is something we all so desperately need in an age where there’s an abundance of distraction,” said Vance Henderson, Hendrick’s Gin National Ambassador. “This experience is something Richard Christiansen has brought to life so beautifully at his home. Flamingo Estate has become a wonderland designed to inspire curiosity, captivate the senses, and enchant the city dwellers through nature and the arts. With Flora Adora, we wanted to emulate the feeling of being in a lush garden in the springtime when a variety of vibrant flowers are in bloom. Together, it is our hope that we’ve captured that simple feeling of radical pleasure that we get straight from the garden, so those in need of a respite can recreate this earthly sensation in their homes too.”
“More than a garden, Flamingo Estate is a philosophy that is deeply connected to the natural world,” said Flamingo Estate Founder Richard Christiansen. “It is a story about extraordinary love, hidden pleasures, and nurturing the senses. A narrative that feels perfectly in sync with Hendrick’s Flora Adora, as it expresses this ephemeral moment of nature in a bottle.”
The latest product from the Cabinet of Curiosities, Hendrick’s Flora Adora Gin is created with garden florals that entice precious pollinators. Buzzing with an enticing aroma of enchanting flowers and a fresh, herbal character, Flora Adora is the brainchild of Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie, who loves watching the butterflies, bees, and other nectar-loving pollinators at play in her garden.
“For as long as I can remember, I’ve been intrigued by the mysteries of Mother Nature and all it has to offer,” said Ms. Lesley Gracie. “Flora Adora is just one example of the beauty that can be created by tapping into your curiosity and making the best of what’s around you.”
To indulge and awaken the five senses much like a Victorian pleasure garden, the kit includes:
● Strawberry Fruit Snack made with rose water and honey to ignite the taste buds with sweet and floral flavors that pair sublimely with a fragrant Flora Adora cocktail, a duo of pleasures from gardens far apart but spiritually near
● Body Oil containing a commingling of flowers and fruit to activate natural pheromones and leave traces of Scottish wildflower meadows on the skin
● Jazz Vinyl arranged to transport you through a year in the garden, from the hum of Spring to the quiet of Winter
● Highball Glasses and Bee Stir Sticks to create an enticingly floral and utterly refreshing cocktail such as the Wildgarden Cup made with Hendrick’s Flora Adora
Do be aware, Botanical Pleasures is only available online while supplies last for $205 at Flamingo Estate’s official website. Hendrick’s Flora Adora Gin is sold separately.
