Bombay Sapphire, one of the world’s leading premium gin brand announced a new product launch – Bombay Sapphire Limited Edition: English Estate –a unique London Dry Gin that draws inspiration from the landscape surrounding the Bombay Sapphire Laverstoke Mill Distillery in Hampshire, United Kingdom and will be available for a limited time only from April 2019.
Handcrafted by the Bombay Sapphire Master Distiller and Master of Botanicals in the stunning setting of the Distillery, with botanicals sourced from the English countryside, Bombay Sapphire English Estate balances the familiar citrus notes of its renowned London Dry Gin with three new botanicals; Pennyroyal mint, Rosehip and toasted Hazelnut.
These new additions are perfectly blended to produce bright citrus notes invigorated with mint, which create a vibrant gin for the ultimate summer refreshment.
Ivano Tonutti, Bombay Sapphire Master of Botanicals says: “I am lucky enough to travel the world to source only the finest botanicals to infuse into our heritage gins. However, some of the best ingredients are found right on our doorstep, gathered from the great English countryside. These new botanical additions within Bombay Sapphire English Estate have been carefully chosen to complement the existing formula of Bombay Sapphire, resulting in a unique flavour profile, so gin lovers can enjoy a taste of English summertime.”
The delicate blend of botanicals within Bombay Sapphire English Estate make for limitless possibilities when it comes to creativity in cocktails. The addition of Pennyroyal mint allows for a refreshing twist on a classic G&T. Pour over ice with premium tonic, add a sprig of mint and a wedge of lemon, and enjoy al-fresco whilst unwinding on a balmy evening.
Alternatively, the subtle toasted Hazelnut notes match effortlessly with apple and ginger. Combine Bombay Sapphire English Estate with premium Ginger Ale and cloudy apple juice to create The English Secret Garden, a deliciously fresh sharing cocktail that’s sure to bring glory to your garden party table.
Sam Carter, Senior Brand Ambassador, Bombay Sapphire comments, “Bombay Sapphire English Estate is a gin with plenty of complexity, but like all our unrivalled products, it is rooted in being of the highest quality. A slightly more prominent botanical taste provides an elevation in citrus flavour and is the ideal canvas for many creative cocktail recipes. Whether mixed in a spritz, combined with bolder flavours, or kept simple in a G&T, it’s the must-have accompaniment to a summer’s day – whether the weather is playing ball or not.”
The creativity doesn’t stop there as Bombay Sapphire English Estate is the first of a number of limited editions due from the brand in the coming years. Available in the iconic emerald blue bottle that Bombay Sapphire is renowned for, but with an intricate summer-inspired design, it’s the perfect addition to display proudly on your drinks trolley.
Available through Ocado and other retailers from April, RRP £23, and in many bars and pubs across the UK.
