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 Lemon 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.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. 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.” 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.

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 Bombay Sapphire is putting citrus fruits front and centre in its new Premier Cru Murcian Lemon gin. 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.
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.” 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.
