The flavouring of the drink comes from a recipe of ten ingredients: almond, lemon peel, liquorice, juniper berries, orris root, angelica, coriander, cassia, cubeb, and grains of paradise. Alcohol brought in from another supplier is evaporated three times using a carterhead still, and the alcohol vapours are passed through a mesh/basket containing the ten botanicals, in order to gain flavour and aroma. This is felt to give the gin a lighter, more floral taste compared to those gins that are created using a copper pot still. Water from Lake Vyrnwy is added to bring the strength of Bombay Sapphire down to 40.0%
Under the uncompromising eye of Ivano Tonutti – our Master of Botanicals – we select only the finest botanicals and vapor infuse them to maintain the natural flavor that distinguishes us from other gin brands.
BOMBAY SAPPHIRE®- Born of our passion for excellence and infused with ten exotic botanicals, Bombay Sapphire has a clean, bright flavor with a vibrant, peppery finish.
BOMBAY SAPPHIRE EAST
Originally created as a personal homage to the Far East, where our Master of Botanicals, Ivano Tonutti has spent much of his time sourcing exotic botanicals. Thai lemongrass and Vietnamese black peppercorns are added to our classic botanical blend. All 12 come together during vapor infusion to create a gin that truly stands apart.
