Family-owned gin brand Mr Hobbs is celebrating its 150th anniversary with the launch of a new expression – Mr Hobbs 150.
Hailing from Henley, based along the Thames, Mr Hobbs was founded in 1870 by Harry Hobbs, who established family pleasure boating business Hobbs of Henley.
The new Mr Hobbs 150 is a classic London Dry gin with “quintessential English heritage”. Bottled at 40% ABV, it features 14 botanicals, including cubeb berries, which offer light, perfumed notes, along with warm and spice from black pepper and cardamom.
The gin boasts nuanced floral notes from meadowsweet and elderflower, both of which are locally sourced on the riverbanks of the Thames, followed by refreshing citrus notes of yuzu and lime.
Mr Hobbs 150 is suggested served with a light tonic water, garnished with fresh lime and ginger, and can also be enjoyed in a myriad of cocktails.
The latest Mr Hobbs variant joins the original Mr Hobbs Gin and two fruit-flavoured liqueurs available in Raspberry & Elderflower and Rhubarb & Ginger.
