Bacardi has expanded its Bombay Sapphire range with a new limited-edition aromatic gin inspired by the heat and glow of the setting sun.
Bombay Sapphire Sunset combines the signature flavour of the London dry gin with three new botanicals – golden turmeric, Indian white cardamom and Spanish mandarin – marking the brand’s first foray into the spiced gin category.
Available now in UK retailers, the new beverage will be available in countries across Europe in the coming weeks.
With a unique aromatic flavour expression, the limited-edition gin is said to be ideal for cocktail creativity. It also features a slighter higher ABV of 43%, allowing for a heightened concentration of spices.
The drink marks the second gin in the brand’s special edition series, following the launch of Bombay Sapphire English Estate in 2019.
“Bombay Sapphire Sunset balances the spices of the cardamom and turmeric together with bittersweet sun-dried Spanish mandarin delivering aromatic spice and warmth, just like those last rays of sunshine at the end of the day,” said Bombay Sapphire master of botanicals, Ivano Tonutti.
Natasha Curtin, global VP of Bombay Sapphire, said: “As the global gin boom continues to thrive, we remain dedicated to championing creativity and craftsmanship within our products.
“The Special Editions are unique and contemporary expressions of Bombay Sapphire gin, each inspired by the natural world from which we source our exquisite botanicals. We cannot wait for fans to discover Bombay Sapphire Sunset and stir their creativity through a range of inventive cocktails, from day into night.”
