EVENT: HENDRICKS' GIN EMPORIUM OF THE UNUSUAL

On November 20th the Hendricks’ Gin team “in cheery defiance of the mundane” turned Mack Sennett Studios into their signature Emporium of the Unusual.  These traveling events, in which Hendricks’ “inadvertently shift the world’s balance of the normal to the ODD”, “curates an an assemblage of curiosities for the mind and palate”. This was by far one of the most breathtakingly creative and extremely entertaining events we’ve had the pleasure of hosting at our studio and we strongly suggest you sign up for Hendricks’ list to receive an invite to the next one!
