Orbium

Hendrick’s Orbium: “It is what Hendrick’s might taste like in a parallel universe.” So Master Distiller, Lesley Gracie, describes it. Intrigued? We sure were.

What does ‘Orbium’ mean?

Orbium – as you might have guessed – derives from the word, ‘orb, and represents the pure spherical taste that is Hendrick’s signature style. The signature apothecary bottle is a lovely lotus blossom blue. And then there is that Masonic, ‘all seeing eye’ on the label.

What’s in Hendrick’s Orbium?

As the website says, Hendrick’s Orbium contains the same distillates as your classic Hendrick’s but infuses flavours traditionally associated with classic gin libations: Quinine found in tonic and Wormwood found in Vermouth.

But Orbium doesn’t stop there. Whilst the addition of Blue Lotus Blossom exquisitely adds delicate floral notes to the mix, the result is something altogether uncommon.

Which is why they caution: “It is ALMOST CERTAINLY not for everyone.”

But the amount of Hendrik’s we sell, a new Hendrick’s – especially a quininated gin – sure is for us. Especially when served as a high ball with lots of ice, soda, and a speared cucumber to stir the soul.
