The iconic New York bar is collaborating with Hendrick’s Gin and Hen’s Teeth for an exclusive residency, Margarita in Retrograde


Hendrick’s Gin has announced a most unusual partnership – the brand is collaborating with Hen’s Teeth to bring the celebrated cocktail bar Mood Ring to Dublin this November. The New York haunt, renowned for its astrology-themed cocktails, will be taking up residency at Hen’s Teeth for Margarita in Retrograde on 17-19th November.

Serving bespoke cocktails inspired by Hendrick’s Gin, Margarita in Retrograde will bring cosmic 70’s vibes to Dublin, creating an unforgettable experience to stir the senses across three evenings. Guests will experience specially-created, star sign-themed cocktails by Mood Ring’s master mixologists tailored to inspire the senses and embrace the unusual.

These cosmic creations will use all of the wondrous releases from Hendrick’s Cabinet of Curiosities, inducing Hendrick’s Lunar and the most recent release, Hendrick’s Neptunia, which is inspired by the sea.

Starry-eyed guests can expect an evening of the aforementioned gin tipples set to a stunning soundtrack courtesy of Japanese DJ Emmy Shigeta.

Speaking on the partnership, Hendrick’s Gin Brand Manager, Eve Clowry, said:

Hendrick’s Gin is beloved for its appreciation of the unusual and we wanted to mark the winter months with something truly special. Those who pursue the peculiar and visit the residency will be met with an unforgettable affair that’s enchanting for the eyes, ears and taste buds. We’re delighted to collaborate with such amazing partners – both locally and further afield – and invite the curious to escape the conventional and experience the unexpected – right in the heart of Dublin this November.”

Speaking on the partnership, Mood Ring co-owner Bowen Goh said:

“We believe the movements of the heavens have the power to rule our lives—from who we date to how we express ourselves. Why shouldn't we let them rule how we drink as well? With such an unusual outlook on cocktail-making, we’re delighted to finally have found a worthily peculiar partner in Hendrick’s Gin. We’re delighted to collaborate with the brand and Hen’s Teeth to bring our surreal point of view to Dublin, and can’t wait to share our zodiac-inspired gin tipples with a brand new audience.

Always enjoy the unusual responsibly.

HENDRICK’S GIN is crafted using two utterly dissimilar stills, a rare Carterhead and an antique Bennett copper pot still, to create a divinely smooth gin that is simultaneously light and complex.
