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