Hendricks Orbium Gin has been called “distinct and delicious,” and we agree.

Hendrick’s Gin was launched by William Grant & Sons in 1999. It’s produced at their Girvan Distillery in South Ayrshire, Scotland — built in 1963. Somewhat famously, the distillery was built in a hurry due to a quarrel between William Grant & Sons and a supplier — Distillers Company Limited (DCL). From ground break to production was a short nine months. They produce several Single Malt and blended Whiskies there, in addition to Hendrick’s Gins.

The most famous Gin cocktail in the world is probably the G&T — the Gin & Tonic. Aside from the popular flavor — one of the reasons that it is so famous is that “tonic” in tonic water is quinine. Created by master distiller Lesley Gracie in small, 500 liter batches, Hendricks Orbium Gin starts with their popular core Gin made with juniper (of course), cucumber, and Bulgarian rose. But this special Gin is “quininated.” This means that it has extracts of quinine already in the Gin — plus some special infusions of blue lotus blossom and wormwood. It’s almost a cocktail in itself, but to our taste, a bit of soda brings out the flavors quite nicely.

As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
