Bombay Sapphire Gin es una ginebra Premium, tipo London Dry de 47,0 % alc./vol., fabricada en Cheshire, Reino Unido, desde 1987 con una receta que data de 1761.

Bombay Sapphire is a brand of gin distributed by Bacardi that was launched in 1987. Its name originates from the gin’s popularity in India during the British Raj and the sapphire in question is the Star of Bombay on display at the Smithsonian Institution.[1] Bombay Sapphire is marketed in a flat-sided, sapphire-coloured bottle that bears a picture of Queen Victoria on the label.[2] The flavouring of the drink comes from a recipe of ten ingredients (which the bottle’s label boasts as “10 exotic botanicals”): almond, lemon peel, liquorice, juniper berries, orris root, angelica, coriander, cassia, cubeb, and grains of paradise. The spirit is triple distilled using a carterhead still, and the alcohol vapours are passed through a mesh/basket containing the ten botanicals, in order to gain flavour and aroma.
