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.

I was introduced to this gin whilst out with my girly friends in a bar in London recently. Love it... Absolutely love it. Hunky barman suggested we try it as a Tom Collins. Apparently 50ml Bombay Sapphire, 25ml freshly squeezed lemon juice, 15ml of sugar syrup (or 2 tea spoons of caster sugar!) stir then top up with loads of ice. He then stirred it again and topped the cocktail with Fever Tree soda water and stirred for a final time. Finally it was garnished with a large lemon wedge for appearance and aroma. Delicious! Now we\\\'ve been introduced to these, I\'ll never drink anything else - so refreshing and complex. Bombay Sapphire Collins all the way.

Given its status, not as impressive as I remember. Tanqueray has more botanical flavours and dilutes better in a gin and tonic.

I first discovered Bombay Sapphire many years ago and it ignited my love for Gin. Whilst not the best gin in the world, as a 'daily drinker' you can't go wrong with Sapphire. With ten distinct botanicals and a rare distillation process it has a smoothness that the other 'standard' Gins lacks. Mix it with Fever Tree tonic, a slice of lime and plenty of ice and you have the perfect G&T. Delicious.

I am not a Gin drinker, except in cocktails where this Gin mixes exceptionally well, great for Singapore Slings etc, it lends a more complex flavour, well worth the extra few quid more than Gordons and the like. For a martini though I would go for a Tanqueray Number 10, if funds will allow that is.

Many regard this gin as a case of style over substance, but it will make for a tasty martini.
