The Original

Harry Hobbs’s old recipe dates back to 1870, we have based the 2017 recipe on five of his original botanicals, one of which is still a family secret, and added Lime Flower and Lemon Peel to give it a citrus twist. Beginning with fragrant floral notes and soft marshmallow, zesty citrus adds clarity and bite amongst savoury juniper and sharp Orris root.

Raspberry & Elderflower

Fresh British Raspberries have been introduced into this intensely flavoured Raspberry & Elderflower Gin Liqueur. The nose is full of ripe berries which continue onto the palate before a long and refreshing Elderflower finish. An ideal accompaniment to Prosecco but just as delicious with soda or tonic water and ice on a balmy Summers evening.

Rhubarb & Ginger

Blended with the very best British Rhubarb to produce a perfectly balanced Gin Liqueur. Summer fruits & herbs on the nose with well-rounded Ginger notes and plenty of Rhubarb on the palate. The perfect addition to any drinks cabinet our Rhubarb & Ginger Gin Liqueur is an exceptional base for summer cocktails, sparkling or otherwise.
