A few weeks ago, I visited the beautiful BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Distillery, just 60 miles from London. Now I’ve been to a lot of distilleries over the years so I thought I knew loads about gin and the distilling process… I learnt so much more while visiting. We were able to explore the ten exotic botanicals that go into every drop of BOMBAY SAPPHIRE within the stunningly beautiful Heatherwick Studio designed Glasshouses.
We spent the day with Sam (Mr Bombay) Carter, Bombay’s Senior Brand Ambassador. It was a great day learning all about the Gin, the brand, cocktails, botanicals and the distillery. We can’t thank him enough for such a fun day. Make sure you check out his Instagram for cocktail inspiration and more https://instagram.com/sapphiresamc?utm_medium=copy_link
When the BOMBAY SAPPHIRE distillery opened in 2014 its design was rated ‘outstanding’ by BREEAM, the world’s leading environmental assessment for buildings. They are striving to be fully sustainable and they are pretty close. It was amazing to hear everything about what the distillery are already doing but what they have planned in the future.
Even visiting there are a number of experiences you can choose to do but I’d recommend doing both the Discovery Experience and Gin Cocktail Masterclass. Make the most of the day!
