2/ Bombay Sapphire

Bombay Sapphire Gin is popular! And for good reason, it was created in 1987 on the basis of a recipe dating from 1761 which has not ceased to be appreciated by lovers of gin. Bombay Sapphire is the result of a steaming infusion of ten different plants, including Tuscan juniper, coriander, almonds, lemon, angelica from Saxony and liquorice, suspended in perforated copper baskets.

This technique produces a fine, light and elegant gin, which can be easily combined with a classic Gin Tonic or one of its variants such as orange or pepper. Consumers say it is a very good gin for making easy shaker cocktails. It is preferred in many bars because it is fairly light and soft on the palate.
