An exotic character for exotic cocktails.

Bombay Sapphire is one of the best known and most popular Gins in the world. It was created in 1986 by International Distillers & Vintners which was part of the mega-merger that created Diageo. Diageo sold the brand to Bacardi in 1997 where it has been raised to flagship status. The entire line of Gins is still produced in England by the famous G&J Greenall — long makers of some of the world’s best Gins — in a new, purpose-built facility and visitor center in Whitchurch, Hampshire.

Bombay Sapphire East Gin was inspired by the time their Master of Botanicals Ivano Tonutti spent in the Far East. Famous for exotic botanicals among other things, this is precisely what he was doing there: sourcing them. So, he added Thai lemongrass and Vietnamese black peppercorns to the classic blend of 10 botanicals. Prepare for exotic eastern flavors to steal the show: this Gin is more than just the usual added spice and citrus. Pair it with tonic or make a cocktail with an exotic twist.

How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
Bombay Sapphire is made using a carter-head still, through a process called vapor infusion. There are only a few of these types of still left in the world, and Bombay Sapphire has three of them.
