A warmer, spicier version of the classic Bombay London Dry you know so well.

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 Greenhall — long makers of some of the world’s best Gins — in a new, purpose-built facility and visitor center in Whitchurch, Hampshire.

Bombay Sapphire Sunset Special Edition Gin is more than a limited edition is a collectable bottle. A its core it’s still classic Bombay. That means that it’s been distilled three times in a Carterhead still and contains the same famous infusions of ten botanicals — juniper berries, almond, lemon zest, licorice, orris root, angelica, coriander, cassia, cubeb, and grains of paradise. But this edition is designed to reflect a warmer, even glowing flavor profile so it adds Indian white cardamum, turmeric, and sun-dried Murcian mandarin zest.

Smartass Corner:
Murcia is a city and region in southwestern Spain — midway between Valencia and Málaga in the hills above the coast. The region is famous for produce, including some of the best citrus in Spain.

Appearance / Color
Clear

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is warmer and spicier than “normal” Bombay with specifically more citrus, but the notes of pine, coriander, and anise are still easily recognizable.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile opens with a feeling of warmth — no matter how well-chilled — and then reveals citrus, juniper, rosemary, and a light pepper.

Finish
The finish is a bit longer too with the warming tones stretching all the way down.

How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
