Globally, Bombay Sapphire is one of the world’s most recognised brands.
Made to the traditional London Dry method, Bombay Sapphire contains ten botanicals, which originate from Jave to Morocco.
Cubeb berries, cassia bark and coriander seeds provide the warmth to this incredibely popular gin.
The coriander comes from Morocco, cassia bark from Indo-China and the cubeb berries from Java, at the feet of volcanoes. This all adds to the mystique of the brand.
The quality of this gin is created by vapour infusing the botanicals and not by boiling them.
The other botanicals are lemon peel, from Murcia, Grains of Paradise, from West Africa, Coriander, from Eastern Europe, Orris Root from Florence, Almonds from Spain, Liquorice from China and Angelica from Dresden.
As you can see, this makes for a truly globally inspired gin!
It is distilled at the Laverstoke Distillery, in Hampshire.
So, to Bombay Star.
It feautures two extra botanicals, bergamot from Calabria and Ambrette seed from Ecuador and is bottled at the higher ABV of 47.5%.
This emphasises further the aromatic profiles of the botanicals.
Bombay Star is great in a G&T with a premium tonic and orange peel garnish.
