Product Description

Bombay Sapphire Gin

Bombay Sapphire is passionate about producing the finest gin possible; which is why the creation of Bombay Sapphire is truly unique. The taste of Bombay Sapphire is created through a vapor infusion process.

The 10 precious botanicals used in Bombay Sapphire are held separate from the spirit in perforated copper baskets, and when the heated vapors rise, the distinctive flavor of the botanicals are released. The result? A complex aromatic liquid that delivers a broader, more balanced flavor.

The 10 Botanicals

Juniper
The juniper comes from the hills of Tuscany and these berries are at the heart of Bombay Sapphire’s botanical recipe. Juniper berries are the seed cones of the juniper tree and bring a dry, fragrant, herbal aroma to the gin.

Lemon Peel
Sweet and juicy, the lemons are hand-picked from Murcia at the beginning of the year before being hand peeled (quite an art) and hung to dry in the Mediterranean air. Important in bringing the citrus flavors to Bombay Sapphire, the lemon peel is also significant in ‘lifting’ the other botanical notes.

Grains of Paradise
Harvested in June or July in the heavy rain season, the grains of paradise used in Bombay Sapphire come from the moist coastal areas of West Africa. A relative of the ginger plant, these seeds offer a spectrum of exotic flavors from a strong peppery bite to light lavender notes as well as a long finish.

Coriander
It might be surprising to know that coriander seeds are the key citrus flavor contributor in any gin. Whilst most of the world’s coriander is produced in Eastern Europe, Bombay Sapphire sources the seeds used from Morocco. Larger in size, Bombay Sapphire love the rich aromas and flavor combination of citrus and warm ginger-like spice they give to the gin. Harvested in April and May, the seeds dry naturally in the warm North African sun.

Cubeb Berries
Despite being part of the pepper family, cubeb berries have a much more floral aroma, including notes of lavendar and rose. Sourced from Java, coffee is their perfect companion as they grow extensively in plantations where they are well supported and shaded by the coffee trees. Gathered before they ripen in the early summer months and dried in the sun, they provide a dry, hot flavor which lingers on the tongue.

Orris Root
Orris is the first part of the root of the Iris flower and Bombay Sapphire makers patiently wait to harvest this Florence botanical as the root is cut from the plant by hand after growing for 3–4 years. Harvested during July and August, it is dried so that the hard, bone-like root can be ground to a fine powder, allowing its full floral flavors to be released during distillation.

Almonds
Bitter almonds from Spain bring out and tie together all of the flavors of the botanicals, delivering the silky smooth feel that makes Bombay Sapphire so enjoyable to drink. Harvested in the late summer, the almonds are ground to produce the precious oil that makes this botanical so special.

Cassia Bark
Thriving in a tropical climate, the cassia bark is sourced in Indonesia and is delicately removed by hand from evergreen trees as tall as 7 meters high. The harvest is long, from May to October, and after stripping, the bark is dried. In the same family as cinnamon but with a more delicate flavor, this botanical relation brings a light warmth and sweetness to Bombay Sapphire.

Liquorice
Liquorice is harvested from the grassy plains of China, cutting only the best quality roots to deliver the deep, warm and sweet flavor to the gin. The distinct anise aroma comes from drying and grinding the freshly harvested root to a fine powder to get the full effect of this exotic ingredient.

Angelica
The root of the angelica plant is harvested from the lush woodlands of Dresden where the multi-headed flowers grow. Harvested in Autumn and Winter months, the angelica root brings a distinct earthy tone to Bombay Sapphire whilst also holding the other nine botanicals in perfect balance, allowing the ten exotic flavors to work in harmony on your palate every time.
