Bombay Sapphire is a brand of gin, produced in England from a recipe of 10 botanicals. The brand was launched in 1987, and was based on Bombay Original London Dry Gin which is a 200-year-old formula that eschewed boiling botanicals for vapor infusion. The gin is triple distilled using carterhead stills rather than the more commonly used pot still. The name Bombay Sapphire stems from gin's popularity in India in the 17th and 18th centuries when the country was ruled by the British Crown. The bottle, carrying the image of Queen Victoria on the label, has become iconic with its flat sides and blue color.
The most notable aspect of Bombay Sapphire is how it feels in your mouth. It hits the palate with a sweet-tart flavor and an almost unctuous and slippery, tongue-coating texture that snaps to a close with a soft, drying juniper-pepper spiciness.
