Russell Norman: ‘My wife says I seduced her with this dish’
My wife says I seduced her with risotto when we first met in 2001, and I’ve been keeping the flame alight ever since with that alchemic combination of rice, stock and seasonal ingredients. Nothing says “I love you” quite so convincingly as making a risotto. It requires patience, concentration and commitment, and if your heart’s not in it, the results won’t be nearly so lovely.
Orbium derives from the word ‘orb’, the plural of Orbis and the Latin for circle. It is inspired by Lesley’s description of the liquid’s journey. It represents the spherical round taste that Lesley refers to when describing the Hendrick’s house style. It is beautifully presented in the same iconic apothecary style bottle that is now synonymous with Hendrick’s albeit in a sumptuous dark blue, inspired by the key essence of Blue Lotus Blossom. It also features an ‘all seeing eye’ on the label as a continuous circle and a reference back to the liquid’s rounded character.
