As US National Brand Ambassador for the most unusual gin, Jim Ryan is not simply an award-winning mixologist, but boasts a variety of other vital accomplishments, including (but not limited to) novice falconer, Swiss road bicycle collector and amateur yogi. When not crafting a delightfully peculiar tipple, Jim can be spotted toodling about town on his vintage red Vespa.
Jim travels for the majority of the year, seeking the freshest local, seasonal ingredients for Hendrick’s cocktails, from the Greek Islands to Chicago to Morocco. After all, the life of a bon vivant lends itself to this kind of enjoyment.
An old favorite (circa 1867), the Tom Collins was created by Jerry Thomas, the father of American Mixology. He's kind of a big deal. This lemonade and gin combination is an easy-drinking option for any occasion.
Fresh and tart, this infusion tastes like summertime in a jar. Sweet strawberries, cooling cucumber and tangy lime create a balanced infusion, perfect for anything from a gin & tonic to a seasonal twist on a Gin Fizz.
