History
The basic idea of this came from @Drunklab - it was a way to solve two problems - that Hendrick's is delicious but difficult outside a G&T - it lacks bitter/green notes. The Italicus is delicious but needs less sugar or more punch. This now makes me think of a classic fragrance family called Fougere, which means fern-like - think citrus, lavender, tonka and oakmoss.
