Bombay Sapphire is one of the few gins that has transcended the category, perhaps even helping to elevate it out of the doldrums and into great prominence again. With its iconic blue bottle it is easily one of the world’s most recognised spirits, and can be found in bars across the world. Launched in 1987 and distributed by Bacardi, Bombay is based on one of the earliest recorded recipes for a premium quality London Dry gin.
The beauty of Bombay Sapphire Gin is in the taste. The botanicals are nicely balanced and add a crispness to the spirit. The ingredients are an international affair and include Italian juniper berries and orris root, Spanish almonds and lemons, grains of paradise from West Africa, Chinese liquorice and cassia bark, angelica from Saxony, Moroccan coriander, and cubeb berries from Java.
