Hendrick's Orbium Gin (43.4%)

R445.00

Hendrick’s Orbium Gin is a limited edition expression based on their famous flagship Hendrick’s Gin. The base spirit and botanical bill is identical to Hendrick’s. Orbium also includes the cucumber and rose essences which are added after distillation. Three new post-distillation essences are added:

Lotus Blossom has a floral flavor with facets of both anise and rose. Wormwood is one of the primary flavoring botanicals in absinthes and Vermouth, with a bitter herbal flavor profile. Finally quinine, which all gin and tonic drinkers are familiar with, comes from the bark of a South American tree and found its way into European consciousness largely because of its prowess as an anti-Malarial. But that distinctive bitter flavor made it a popular in the spirits world as the ingredient began to appear in a number of amaros and bitters during the 19th century and beyond.

Quininated spirits are rare in the 21st century, but the designation used to indicate that a distilled spirit may have been intended to have a medicinal use (in addition to a clear and obvious recreational use).
