The gin maker’s newest offering, ‘Hendrick’s High Wheel’ is a stationary ‘penny farthing’ bicycle. (For readers who are not up-to-date on cycling history, the penny farthing was an early cycle popular in 1870’s; you might recognize them as those old school cycles with one giant wheel and one small one.) The Hendrick’s version is intended to be a throwback, low-tech response to the likes of the Peloton.

What makes a normal Mint Julep a Georgia Julep? Peach, of course! (Also, swap that Bourbon out for some Cognac.) The result is just as refreshing on a to summer day with lots of added stone fruit to compliment the mint.
