A new gin from Hendrick’s has been a long time coming. But Orbium was well worth the wait and it has now been released exclusively through Harvey Nichols.
In addition to the classic rose and cucumber, the brand new Orbium contains two additions usually found in gin cocktails and one exotic new ingredient. First up is quinine, one of the components of the tonic water used in a classic G&T. Second, comes wormwood, found in the vermouth mixed into a Martini. And finally, there’s blue lotus blossom. This water lily adds vivid floral notes and contains a psychoactive alkaloid aporphine, which was thought to have been used medicinally by the Mayans and Ancient Egyptians. The result, in the distillery’s own words, is what Hendrick’s might taste like in a parallel universe. For us, Orbium feels intriguingly like déjà vu: both entirely new and yet somewhat strangely familiar.
With its woody and floral complexity, Orbium makes a magnificent gin and tonic or Martini. However, Harvey Nichols particularly enjoys mixing it with soda to allow the gin itself to take centre stage. Many credit the original Hendrick’s with sparking gin’s phenomenal resurgence. Watch this space to see what Orbium will do.
