A taste of summertime


A limited edition Bombay Sapphire gin which draws on the land surrounding its Laverstoke Mill Distillery in Hampshire has been released.

Produced using botanicals from the English countryside, Bombay Sapphire English Estate is said to “balance the familiar citrus notes” of the London Dry Gin with three new botanicals: Pennyroyal mint, rosehip and toasted hazelnut.

The new additions are blended to produce “bright citrus notes invigorated with mint”, creating a “vibrant” gin.

Ivano Tonutti, Bombay Sapphire master of botanicals, said “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,” he added.
