About this deal

This is perfectly balanced with the vibrant juniper notes of our classic signature Gin. A real fruits infusion with no added sugar gives a distinct colour and natural flavour. Sorry, but all the Bombay gins taste chemical to me. Bombay also gives the worst hangover of any gin. Maybe it’s the vapor infusion? You gin drinkers might like to read Death of a Spymaster. The main spy guy drinks Bombay gin. The book is good too. The botanical blend is rather traditional and unsurprising— it is after all based on what would have been widely and easily available on the British market in the 1760’s. It includes almond, licorice, coriander, lemon, cassia, angelica, orris root and juniper sources from Saxony. Tasting Notes

A holiday taste test was recently conducted among our friends. Many gin buffs cannot tell the difference between Bombay dry beefeater and tanqueray (7 of 9 anyway) Bombay Bramble is best enjoyed simply with tonic, poured over ice and garnished with a wedge of lemon. I am incredibly proud of the meticulous processes used to produce Bombay Sapphire Premier Cru from the skilled sourcing and preparation of botanicals to my role in carefully adapting every small batch of gin to bring out the nuances of the late harvest during distillation, amplifying the unique characteristics and finest flavours into a consistent flavour profile every year.” Discover the bright, bold citrus notes of sustainably grown Spanish Fino lemons, mandarins and sweet Navel oranges from Murcia. A celebration of nature’s finest flavors.I still have no problem finding London Dry in my local liquor stores, but I am always disappointed when a restaurant only carries Sapphire. Our classic London Dry Gin married with a vibrant, naturally refreshing fruit infusion, capturing the taste of freshly squeezed Mediterranean lemons. We are open Friday to Sunday every week, plus bank holidays and selected weekdays. For weekday opening and experience availability, search dates here. Murcian citrus is particularly special due to the exact region where it is grown. Sitting in a basin between mountain and sea, it is the perfect microclimate for growing citrus that slowly ripens in the winter months for the best-tasting fruit and impactful flavour.” Bombay Sapphire’s parent company Bacardi recently launched Grey Goose Essences, in three flavours, for the UK market following a successful roll out in the US, suggesting the rise in fruit-infused spirits is yet to peak.

For a savory Martini, I like Bombay London Dry 4:1 with good old Martini & Rossi vermouth. For a cleaner but still very flavorful Martini, try Fords 4:1 with Vya. Having loved Bombay Sapphire, I’m so disappointed with Bombay Dry. I did not find its wood taste in the least inviting. I love wood, work wood, turn wood, carve wood – no way do I want to drink it!Frank1 Union Press Ltd | Wigglesworth House, Fourth Floor, 69 Southwark Bridge Road, London, SE1 9HH, UK Tel: +44 (0)20 7803 2420

Natasha Curtin, global vice president for Bombay Sapphire, noted an increase in “ curiosity for authentic and new flavour expressions” among consumers, while tending to favour natural, premium ingredients with no added sugar. I have been drinking the Original Bombay Dry Gin now for over 30 years. Can’t find it in the stores anymore. As has been asked, “have they quite making it”?.

Bombay “Red”, (as i call it) is unique in that it has an unusual proofing … 86 … rare indeed in the world of Gin My first time drinking was the original bombay which was two weeks ago, so yes they still sell it…ask for the red bombay which is the original. So they wont give you sapphire Bombay Dry Gin, similar to its more famous sister Bombay Sapphire, is distilled from a base of grain and imparts the botanicals through vapor infusion. I always avoided Bombay Dry because I didn’t like Sapphire. Based on your review, I bought a bottle to replace my Boodles. To me it’s an excellent all purpose gin. Very good in Martinis with a substantial amount of Dolin Dry (3:1, 2:1 and 50/50). It comes after the launch in March of Bombay Sapphire Sunset, which also featured Spanish citrus alongside turmeric and white cardamom. Bombay Sapphire Premier Cru Murcian LemonA creative, natural expression of our original Bombay Dry Gin capturing the bright zest and juice of freshly squeezed Mediterranean lemons. As part of the brand’s ongoing mission towards sustainability, each of the botanicals in Bombay Sapphire Premier Cru is set to be sustainably sourced by the end of 2021. It follows an announcement in March this year that eight out of 10 of the core Bombay Sapphire botanicals were being sourced sustainably. I sometimes feel as this is one of the most consistently excellent classic, London Dry process gins on the market— that goes somewhat unheralded when people ask “what’s the best classic gin.” While less famous than Bombay Sapphire, those looking for something more juniper-forward should look towards Bombay Dry Gin. Ivano Tonutti, Bombay Sapphire Master of Botanicals, said: “The Mediterranean lemons are harvested at their perfect ripeness and truly showcase the very best flavours that nature has to offer. By harvesting them early in the season, their lively citrus notes shine through in the gin, delivering a vibrant, sophisticated taste.”

Bombay Sapphire is putting citrus fruits front and centre in its new Premier Cru Murcian Lemon gin. The nose of Bombay Dry Gin is soft. There’s a touch of angelica rounding out then mild juniper with a pine and herbaceous facet. Citrus and a hint of gently piquant cinnamon provide lift. Bombay Sapphire Gin is quite classic with a pleasant roundness and accessible aroma. Why can’t I find regular Bombay gin? Did they stop making it? Is the Bombay Sapphire all they make now? I hope not! The launch of Bombay Citron Pressé – made from natural fruit infusions with no added sugar – follows on from the brand’s previous fruit-forward launch; Bombay Bramble.This has been my liquor of choice for multiple years. To me, it is much smoother than Beefeaters which is its main competitor in price. Given the price difference between it and the Bombay Sapphire, the taste of Dry and price value makes it preferable to the sapphire.
