Bombay Sapphire has unveiled Bombay Sapphire Sunset, a new gin inspired by the mellow heat and orange glow of the setting sun.
This Special Edition release combines the 10 existing signature Bombay Sapphire botanicals with an additional three – golden turmeric, Indian white cardamom, and Spanish mandarin.
Bacardi-Martini Australia recommends enjoying the aromatic winter warmer as a late afternoon aperitif with one of Australia’s spectacular sunsets. It provides gin lovers with an elevated option for a gin and tonic and encourages the use of garnishes such as orange and star anise. Bombay Sapphire Sunset also works well when paired with ginger ale, fresh ginger, and a squeeze of lime to create a refreshing Sunset Buck, or use Bombay Sapphire Sunset to evolve a classic Negroni.
This is the second gin in the brand’s series of Special Editions following the launch of Bombay Sapphire English Estate in 2019.
Bombay Sapphire Master of Botanicals Ivano Tonutti said: “I have worked closely with our Master Distiller Dr Anne Brock to create a subtle combination of warming spices and citrus notes that truly enhance the complex flavour profile of Bombay Sapphire gin, providing a lingering warmth and refreshing taste.
“Bombay Sapphire Sunset balances the spices of the cardamom and turmeric together with bittersweet sun-dried Spanish mandarin delivering aromatic spice and warmth, just like those last rays of sunshine at the end of the day.”
Every drop of Bombay Sapphire is produced at the sustainability conscious Laverstoke Mill in England, and like all Bombay Sapphire gins, the natural botanicals are suspended in copper baskets, gently infusing their aromatic flavours throughout the distillation process.
Georgina Mann, National Advocacy Manager for Bacardi-Martini Australia says: “Gin lovers will be rejoicing with this latest offering from Bombay Sapphire, as the brand continues to play with innovation and flavour as it releases its newest Special Edition, Bombay Sapphire Sunset.
“Adding three more exquisite botanicals which we’ve sustainably sourced from all over the world, Bombay Sapphire Sunset is the perfect aromatic drink this winter allowing bartenders and drinkers alike to stir their creativity with a range of inventive cocktails to take you from late afternoon into the evening.
“I love a classic Negroni for those aperitivo moments and Bombay Sapphire Sunset is what I’m reaching for now.”
Bombay Sapphire Sunset will be nationally at BWS and Dan Murphy’s from June 28, 2021.
