because it is so near to their distillery, hendrick’s took us to the superposh turnberry hotel for their version of the high tea: including the traditional cucumber sandwiches and scones, and the slightly less ordinary gin cocktails served with rasberries and rose petals. the view on ailsa craig, the granite island traditional curling stones hail from, was simply amazing. even if you’re not middle-aged and looking to enjoy your holidays on the golf court, i would surely recommend coming here for tea and scones.

in true hendrick’s spirit, we were then surprised by an ice cream cart on the way back to glasgow – right at the electric brae. though i couldn’t perceive the famous optical illusion myself, i did enjoy the gin and tonic sorbet and rose and cucumber ice cream we were treated to. and here i was thinking i’m pretty inventive with my cocktail recipe books. this trip sure showed me i need to step up my game!
