The Original Since 1870
Harry Hobbs’s old recipe dates back to 1870, we have based the 2017 recipe on five of his original botanicals and added Lime Flower and Lemon Peel to give it a citrus twist, the 7th remains a family secret. Beginning with fragrant floral notes and soft marshmallow, zesty citrus adds clarity and bite amongst savoury juniper and sharp Orris root.
Mr Hobbs suggests you pour a generous slug of his Henley gin over plenty of good quality ice, pair it with a premium tonic water and finish with a curl of orange peel to garnish.
Mr Hobbs Gin is a 45% Distilled Gin with strength and flavour. The mix of traditional and local botanicals create a distinctive taste reminiscent of old style ‘Export’ Strength Gins. The introduction of a curl of orange peel brings out the citrus notes and gives a complex, long and smooth refreshing finish.
