BOMBAY SAPPHIRE has launched a limited edition release inspired by the brand’s home and landscape of the English countryside. BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Limited Edition: English Estate is an infusion of the much-loved premium gin BOMBAY SAPPHIRE with Pennyroyal mint, Rosehip and Toasted Hazelnut.
The limited release is handcrafted at the brands home in Laverstoke Mill in Hampshire, by Master of Botanicals and the Master Distiller. The result is bright citrus notes, invigorated with mint, which creates a light and vibrant tasting gin, designed to be enjoyed creatively in a variety of cocktails.
Ivano Tonutti, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Master of Botanicals comments, “Each botanical in our gin is carefully balanced to create a smooth and complex taste, and the new BOMBAY SAPPHIRE English Estate is no different. Hand-selected from the English countryside and drawing creative inspiration from the Hampshire home of BOMBAY SAPPHIRE, the additional botanicals produce a vibrant gin. Bursting with bright citrus notes and invigorated with mint, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE English Estate provides a subtle taste elevation for gin lovers to enjoy.”
To mark the new release, two BOMBAY SAPPHIRE English Estate cocktails have been created. The Secret English Garden blends BOMBAY SAPPHIRE English Estate with Fever-Tree ginger ale and cloudy apple juice – served long with lemon, apple, thyme and ice. For something more classic with a twist is the BOMBAY SAPPHIRE English Estate Gin & Tonic, a single or double measure combined with Fever-Tree tonic, served over ice, garnished with mint and a lemon wedge.
Natasha Curtin, Global VP, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE says, “ We are dedicated to creativity, which is why we’re so proud to launch a new limited edition gin, inspired by our home and distillery in Laverstoke and the first in a series of limited editions that you can expect to see from BOMBAY SAPPHIRE. The addition of Pennyroyal mint, Rosehip and toasted Hazelnut create a perfect balance of citrus notes to produce a delicate gin to encourage experimentation in cocktail making. BOMBAY SAPPHIRE English Estate is testament to our global mission to ‘Stir Creativity’, where we aim to inspire and enable creative self-expression, both behind the bar and beyond.”
BOMBAY SAPPHIRE English Estate will be available for 12 months only and is the first series of limited edition product innovations. We can expect to see more limited releases in the coming years. Keep a look out for the new release in selected bottle shops and award-winning bar The Barber Shop from August.
