Bombay is made in accordance with a time-honoured recipe established in 1761. The heart of this distinctive dry gin is its unique distillation process, called vapour infusion. Unlike some gins, that boil the botanicals together with spirit, Bombay distills its pure grain spirit alone. The spirit vapour from this distillation gently passes through a copper basket containing eight carefully selected botanicals. Through this process, Bombay acquires a subtle, full flavor taste making it a well rounded and distinctive dry gin.
The incomparable taste of Bombay Sapphire is the result of ten carefully selected botanical ingredients coupled with a unique process. Unlike some gins, which "boil" their botanicals together with the spirit, Bombay Sapphire distills its spirit alone. The spirit vapour from the distillation then gently passes through a copper basket containing the botanicals. This infuses the subtle aromatic flavors from each of the ten botanicals into the spirit for a cleaner, crisper, more balanced taste.
As original as it is flavorful, Bombay Sapphire East Gin boasts a complex blend of ingredients that combines the very best of ten diverse nations. Lemongrass, black peppercorns, lemon peel, liquorice root, almonds, angelica root, coriander, cassia bark, cubeb berries, grains of paradise, juniper berries and iris root.
