"An interesting extension in the Bombay Sapphire brand. It features all of the botanicals from Bombay Sapphire and then adds lemongrass and black pepper. These two new botanicals clearly stand out in the nose of the Bombay Sapphire East Gin giving it a spicier and fuller nose. The lemongrass seems to also boost the lemon in the nose and the black pepper boosts the juniper. Other than that the nose is fairly true to Bombay Sapphire." Tasting Notes Bombay Sapphire Description East is made exactly the same way as Bombay Sapphire ie by vapour infusion where the spirit meets the botanicals in vapour form using a Carter-head still allowing the delicate flavours of the two new botanicals to be gently embedded in the spirit. The result is a distinctively different gin that still maintains the family character of Bombay Sapphire. Where the original Sapphire is characterised by soft juniper, spice and lemon flavours, Bombay Sapphire East makes its presence felt with a lovely big earthy pepper hit and green citrussy elements derived from lemongrass . Warm, fragrant spice and a citrus sweetness combine perfectly to add complexity and weight.
