The London edition has a massive tasting room (Picture: Hendrick’s)
Gin and flowers are two of the ingredients needed for a perfect summer. For added effect, however, why not go to another dimension?
That’s exactly what you can do with the new Hendrick’s pop-up, which celebrate the midsummer solstice.
They’ll feature purpose-built telephone boxes that transport you to a flowery world of mirrors and sensory experiences.
The brand say its aim is to look at how we communicated before the phone and ‘to provide physical and mental space in which to stop, literally smell the roses, and consider those true, meaningful connections’.
Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice Gin is just about to come out, and will be featuring that heady floral concoction highlighted throughout the pop-up.

You’ll get a sample of the new gin if you dare to venture into their one-of-a-kind gin-land, as well as a special drink made from it. You’ll also get to take away a beautiful bloom to pop in a vase at home.
Capital-dwellers will be lucky enough to experience the full thing if they head down, while those in other UK cities will get a taste of the action without the mirrored tasting room.
Here’s the timetable:
London – Soho Square – Including Midsummer Solstice Tasting Room
12pm to 9pm Friday 28 March
Brighton – Palace Pier
12pm to 7pm Thurday 28 March and Friday 29 March
Manchester – King Street
12pm to 7pm Sunday 31 March and Monday 1 April
Edinburgh – Castle Street
12pm to 7pm Friday 29 March and Saturday 30 March
Liverpool – Salthouse Dock
12pm to 7pm Saturday 30 March and Sunday 31 March
You’ll need to be quick, as the pop-ups are first come first served, so entry isn’t guaranteed. If you manage to get in, make sure to take plenty of pics, as it looks super Insta-friendly.
