Trendy younger sibling to Bombay Original, on whose recipe it is based (with a couple of extra botanicals). Credited with kickstarting gin's fashionability since its launch in 1987, Bombay Sapphire has become a truly iconic brand, with its distinctive blue bottle recognisable in bars the world over.
Strong citrus nose, acidic lemon dominating. Good bit of alcohol notes in there too, along with some juniper.
The palate is a bit oily and thick, covering the tongue thoroughly and slowly. Though it begins very mild with not a whole lot of flavor.
The finish is tight and long, with heat, coriander, juniper and a balanced citrus note.
A restrained style that is a proto-contemporary look at gin. Great for people who like a restrained perspective to their gin.
