Hendrick’s Orbium, the latest expression from the curiously odd Hendrick’s Gin, is now available to procure from British Columbia liquor stores. Containing the same whimsical 11 botanicals as the inceptive liquid, Hendrick’s Orbium infuses wormwood, blue lotus blossom and quinine taking recipients further down the rabbit hole into the Hendrick’s parallel universe.
“Orbium leaves an unfamiliar yet oddly familiar sensation on the palette,” comments Alvin P. Ramchurn, Purveyor of the Peculiar and Canadian National Brand Ambassador for Hendrick’s Gin.
“It’s designed to open up previously unexplored dimensions of gin, infusing flavours traditionally associated with classic gin libations for a finish that is uncommonly long.”
Distilled with a trinity of three additional elements to the already fortuitous flavours of cucumber, rose and 11 botanicals in the classic Hendrick’s Gin, Orbium is truly a parallel experience of the world’s most peculiar, infusing the classic flavours of gin cocktails in one reimagined experience. Quinine (often found in tonic water) is expertly infused into Orbium as is wormwood, usually found in vermouth, a common ingredient in a traditional gin martini.
A third element in the Orbium trinity of taste that will pleasure the palettes of all who shall swill this drink of delight comes from the covert Blue Lotus Blossom, bringing another level of balance, bitterness and brightness to the world’s most peculiar gin.
Available only in ten markets across the Globe, Orbium will only be available for a particular period of time in British Columbia. Following this wondrous allotment, Orbium will diverge from the peculiarly parallel universe of Hendrick’s to vanish into vats unknown.
“Orbium comes from the remarkable mind of the Hendrick’s Gin Master Distiller, Lesley Gracie,” adds Beth-Anne Perry, Senior National Brand Manager, Hendrick’s Gin. “Hendrick’s Gin continues to break conventions and take gin in a curiously and most unusual direction.”

ABOUT HENDRICK’S GIN
Hendrick’s Gin is a deliciously super premium gin, made with a number of unusual twists to deliver a most curious arrangement. Unlike ordinary gins, Hendrick’s Gin is distilled in Scotland, in small batches of only 500 litres at a time. Only Hendrick’s Gin is made with infusions of cucumber and rose petals, alongside a blend of 11 botanicals, producing a wonderfully refreshing gin with a delightfully floral aroma. Hendrick’s Gin is made in a combination of a Carter-Head and copper pot still, creating a divinely smooth gin with both character and balance of subtle flavours.
