Henley on Thames has its first premium gin
Hobbs of Henley, one of the longest established pleasure boating companies in the UK, has launched Henley on Thames’s very first premium gin. Mr Hobbs Henley Gin is made with a blend of botanicals that grow locally and is being created at the renowned Foxdenton distillery in Buckinghamshire
The gin is the inspiration of Jonnie and Suzy Hobbs, the directors of Hobbs of Henley and brings together popular botanicals such as Angelica and Marshmallow, with added lemon peel, Orris Root and Lime Leaf Oil for a modern twist. This combination of flavours has created a luxurious drink that is in keeping with the reputation and brand of Hobbs of Henley.
Mr Hobbs gin is a true distilled gin that gives it purity and clarity. Once the distillation process is complete then, and only then, are the botanicals and other flavours added to complete the creative process.
Suzy told Luxury Lifestyle Magazine: “Henley on Thames is one of the most iconic towns in England and with such a rich sporting and cultural history we wanted to create a gin worthy of the Hobbs of Henley name. The Hobbs family has lived and worked around Henley since Victorian time and we have crafted a gin that that we believe that will keep the Hobbs of Henley name on everyone’s lips for many years to come.
“Working with Foxdenton has been a really rewarding experience; the intricacies of the gin creation process and Foxdenton refusal to compromise on any aspect of the purity and clarity of our product has produced a remarkably flavoured and refreshing drink.”
Mr Hobbs gin is priced at £36 per bottle and is available the Hobbs of Henley boatyard boat yard or at a number of selected local establishments or visit mrhobbsgin.co.uk.
