Mr Hobbs Original Gin


Vendor: TGTMT

Harry Hobbs’s old recipe dates back to 1870, they 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.

See below for our recommended pairing.

ABV: 45%

Mr Hobbs Original Gin is a 45% Distilled Gin with strength and flavour.

Created to accompany Mr Hobbs on the river.

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.

This provides a complex, long and smooth refreshing finish.

Mr Hobbs suggests you pour a generous slug of his Henley gin over plenty of good quality ice.

Pair Mr Hobbs Original Gin with a Fever-Tree Indian tonic water and finish with a curl of orange peel to garnish.
