Orbium is a reimagining of Hendrick's Gin by their Master Distiller, Lesley Gracie. Instilled with additional extracts of Quinine, Wormwood and Lotus Blossom, the result is an oddly exquisite gin that sits roundly on the palate, complementing cucumber and rose essences.
Orbium derives from the word 'orb', the plural of Orbis and the Latin for circle. It is inspired by Lesley's description of the liquid's journey. It represents the spherical round taste that Lesley refers to when describing the Hendrick's house style. It is beautifully presented in the same iconic apothecary style bottle that is now synonymous with Hendrick's albeit in a sumptuous dark blue, inspired by the key essence of Blue Lotus Blossom. It also features an 'all seeing eye' on the label as a continuous circle and a reference back to the liquid's rounded character.
Nose - Lush and slightly sweet aroma of lotus that fades to reveal an elegant juniper character with suggestions of deep fruit and a floral softness.
Palate - The initial flourish of dry sweetness balances on the palate with subtle lemon zest and expands with a hint of spice that emerges before spiralling deeper to a woody quinine bitterness which gradually dissolves to leave an unexpected but familiar floral glow.
Finish - Well rounded, bright and uncommonly long.
