Hendrick's Orbium Gin is a custom formulation by their
master distiller Lesley Gracie. Produced in astonishingly small batches of 500
liters each, Orbium is a “quininated” Gin. This means that, in addition to
special extracts of blue lotus blossom snd wormwood, quinine is one of the
major infusions. And that makes sense when you remember that the most famous
Gin cocktail in the world in the G&T — Gin and Tonic. And tonic water is a
cocktail mixer made with quinine. In this way it is akin to experiencing a
G&T at full strength.
Taking the quintessential Scottish Gin to new worlds,
Hendricks Orbium Gin add lotus blossoms, wormwood, and quinine to their
signature Gin and reinvent the meaning of the word Gin.
William Grant & Sons in launched the Hendrick’s Dry
Gin in 1999 as an addition to the portfolio of spirits and brands produced at
the Girvan Distillery in South Ayrshire, Scotland. Thus it is famously known as
“The Scottish Gin.” The Hendrick’s line was a nearly instantaneous success due
to it’s unique flavor profile. That profile is achieved principally through two
factors — the botanical mix and the distillation technique.
