Many famous Irish creatives assembled within the gorgeous gardens of Staunton’s on the Green, a hidden green paradise in the heart of Dublin city centre. The sea of well-known faces were all there to celebrate the latest launch from Hendrick’s Cabinet of Curiosities, Flora Adora, which became available to the Irish market this week.

Damien Broderick  was in attendance and dawning his now signature peaky-blinders-esque attire, eager to try the new launch from the super-premium gin brand. Founder of luxury Irish clothing brand, Aoife Ireland, Aoife McNamara, was in attendance, clad head- toe in her own designs, and was spotted enjoying quality time with Ireland’s best-known jeweller, Chupi Sweetman. Both enjoyed a catchup in the enchanting garden that was beautifully transformed by Hendrick’s.
