Discover More About Our Products

The flat-sided, sapphire-blue bottle that the world has come to know and love as Bombay Sapphire has only been around since 1986. The recipe for this world-famous gin was inspired by the secret recipe for Bombay Original, which can trace its roots all the way back to 1761.

Bombay Sapphire's botanicals include juniper berries, coriander seeds, angelica root, almonds, lemon peel, cassia bark, orris root, liquorice, grains of paradise and cubeb berries. Bombay Sapphire vapour infuses all of its botanicals into the neutral base spirit. Many producers choose to boil their botanicals, but Bombay believes that vapour infusion leads to a more delicate final product.

Even though the bottle is blue, the gin within is not. This remarkable product is a beautiful premium gin that sets itself apart from the rest thanks to its innovative botanical list and its steam infusion method. The flavour profile of this much-loved product allows it to get along well with any number of flavours, including fruit. With its reasonable price, there is no reason not to have a bottle of Bombay Sapphire on the ready for when you fancy a high-quality gin drink.

Description of Bombay Sapphire

Bombay Sapphire


  • Colour: Bombay Sapphire is a transparent spirit.
  • Aroma: Bombay Sapphire shows sweet, floral and aromatic notes with dominant aromas of citrus, juniper and spices.
  • Taste: Spicy and earthy notes. The finish is sweet and lingering, followed by aromas of juniper and peppery spices.

PRODUCER: Bombay Spirits at Laverstock Mill. This brand was first launched in 1986 by IDV, one of the leading wine-merchants of England. In 1997 it was sold to Bacardi. The name originates from the fact that gin was one of the most popular spirits in India during the era of the British Raj. Sapphire refers to the violet-blue Star of Bombay, mined from Sri Lanka and currently being displayed at the Smithsonian Institution.

COUNTRY: United Kingdom

PRODUCTION DETAILS: The gin is produced by a triple distillation process. During the distillation process, hand-selected botanicals are carefully layered in the copper baskets, to infuse the aroma and flavour. This method makes sure that the more delicate floral aromas and flavours are embedded in the spirit. The botanicals used during the production of this gin are: Juniper berries, Lemon peel, Coriander, Angelica root, Orris, Grains of Paradise, Cubeb Berries, Cassia Bark, Almonds and Liquorice.

The story of Bombay Spirits Co. reads itself like a travel journal, running down from "the vibrant souks in Marrakesh to the vastness of the Sahara desert", where the company seeks out the coriander seeds. From Marrocco over West Africa we pass on the Indonesian island, Java, where Bombay Spirits Co searches for the grains of paradise, finally arriving in Indo-China.

4 /5

- Bombay Sapphire has a unique distillation process: There are only four Carterhead stills working in the world today and are distinctive to Bombay Sapphire.
- Unlike other gins which boil their botanicals with the spirit, the Bombay spirit is distilled alone. To achieve the unique flavour, the spirit passes through the botanicals in vapour form. This allows each delicate aroma to be fully absorbed. The result is a complex, yet subtle taste sensation.
- Triple distilled, 100% neutral grain spirit is heated into vapour form. Vapour is sent through the rectifying column, unique to a Carterhead still. The baffle system, situated in the column, allows only the purest spirit to pass through.
- Purified vapour passes through a copper basket containing 10 natural botanicals and absorbs their delicate flavours. The vapour is turned into liquid and received into a spirit safe as Bombay Sapphire.
- The selection and balance of their botanicals is based on a recipe dating from 1761. The selection of botanicals used to create Bombay Sapphire is an extensive process with no expense is spared.
- Bombay Sapphire is blended with pure water from Lake Vyrnwy and bottled.

4 /5

Bombay Saphire, la gran destronada de las ginebras Premium, debido al innumerable número de ginebras que han salido en el mercado.
Una London Dry Gin (de 10 botánicos) que con una nariz de intensidad media me recuerda a especias y frutos secos, con un fondo de limón.
La boca es suave y seca, con persistencia. Aquí lo que más saco son las bolas de enebro.
Yo la sirvo en copa balón, hielo a tope (hasta llenar la copa), la piel de la lima (yo me pongo un par, que me gusta el toque bastante cítrico), momento de echar la ginebra (cuento 1001, 1002 y 1003) y por último, ayudada por una cuchara de espiral, una tónica Premium lemon tonic, con la que potencio los aromas cítricos.

Una ginebra ideal para cócteles como la versión del Gin Sour, el Tom Collins.
