History

Lesley Gracie and the Hendrick's team were inspired by the work of Thomas Whiffen, a pioneering mathematician and chemist. Thomas Whiffen developed the use of quinine and its related products at a chemical factory where he worked in the nineteenth century. He was responsible for coining the name “Quinetum” for the ‘Pure Alkaloids of India Red Bark’ at his factory, which was known as ‘Quinine Works Battersea’. 


Description

Crafted in-house in Girvan, Quinetum is the new cordial created by Master Distiller Lesley Gracie – a delightful mixture of quinine and several natural extracts and distillates from a combination of fine botanicals: lavender, orange, orange blossom, wormwood and holy thistle. Created with a base of glycerol and a small amount of sugar syrup and citric acid, the product is 4% ABV. 


Tasting notes

Quinetum was designed to blend perfectly with Hendrick's.

Aroma: the first hints on the nose are of orange, with subtle lavender underneath. These complement Hendrick's citrus and floral notes exceptionally well.
Taste: the wormwood and holy thistle give a deep, bitter and green flavour to suit the quinine and balance the citrus, which - when mixed with Hendrick's- works in wonderful ways with the caraway seeds and cubeb berries.

It is of course, not designed to drink neat!


Observations

The new bottle is modelled on a 1940s poison bottle discovered in an old London bric-a-brac shop.
