Bombay Sapphire® is the world’s number one premium gin by volume and value. Bombay Sapphire is created with a unique combination of ten sustainably sourced botanicals from around the globe. The brand’s signature distillation process, known as vapour infusion, is showcased at the BREEAM award-winning Laverstoke Mill Distillery in Hampshire, England. The vapour infusion process skilfully captures the natural flavours of the botanicals, which results in the gin’s fresh, bright taste. Awarded a double gold medal in the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Bombay Sapphire is consistently recognised for crafting the finest quality gin.
The Bombay Sapphire Bar was one of the most-talked-about highlights of this year’s edition of the Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair. And now, Creative Feel readers will be able to experience this premium gin for themselves as we celebrate the success of 2018 at an exclusive Cinema Nouveau screening.
Located in the Textile Pavilion at the Sanlam HMC, the Bombay Sapphire Bar allowed guests to experience the best cocktails from the experienced barmen, enjoyed in a beautifully designed chill area, which was reminiscent of the botanicals that the gin is made out of.
The design of the bar motif was inspired by the botanicals themselves; from the heat of their Moroccan cubeb berries to the spice of their West African Grains of Paradise; which are some of the ten precious botanicals that are chosen to bring their own special something to the gin. Uniquely distilled, they come together to give Bombay Sapphire its tantalising, smooth and complex taste.
The signature Bombay and Tonic cocktail, which was the most requested of the night, can be made using the following recipe:
Fill balloon glass to the rim with good ice.
Stir until frosted.
Strain excess liquid from the glass.
Pour Bombay Sapphire over ice and squeeze lime (with pith removed) over the drink.
Add lime to the glass after squeezing.
Stir drink to acclimate contents.
Tilt glass and pour chilled tonic water down the side of the glass and lift once gently using a bar spoon.
