Hendrick’s Gin has unveiled a new limited edition gin, Orbium – with an “unfamiliar taste that is oddly familiar”…

Orbium is a reimagining of Hendrick’s Gin by Master Distiller, Lesley Gracie. Instilled with additional extracts of Quinine, Wormwood and Blue Lotus Blossom, the result is an oddly exquisite gin that sits roundly on the palate. “It is ALMOST CERTAINLY not for everyone.” says the quirky brand message.

Orbium contains the same distillates as Hendrick’s Gin, however, the same remarkable mind that broke conventions by infusing gin with essences of cucumber and rose has now taken gin in an altogether new direction by infusing flavours that are traditionally associated with classic gin libations; quinine found in tonic (Gin & Tonic) and wormwood found in Vermouth (Martini Cocktail). But it is not yet quite Orbium.

The addition of Blue Lotus Blossom exquisitely balances the overall flavour; but, the trinity of essences together create a complex gin with surprising brightness and a finish that is uncommonly long. The result is an unfamiliar taste that is oddly familiar in character designed to open up previously unexplored dimensions of gin as It spirals from floral into an altogether deeper and alluringly bitter place.

Orbium is initially available in select bars across the UK, with a first release of 4,000 bottles – but the product is planned to become a permanent addition to the Hendrick’s range and will roll out into other markets such as duty-free and travel retail in due course. Check back for more details.
