Bombay Sapphire: a brand history

30th September, 2015 by Tom Bruce-Gardyne


Bombay Sapphire Laverstoke-Mill

Distillery opens at Laverstoke Mill in Hampshire and Bombay Amber is launched. The distillery and “brand home” marked a significant turning point in the history of Bombay Sapphire, despite opening one year later than expected. Based at the site of a historic paper mill, the distillery encompasses two Botanical Glasshouses – one tropical and one temperate – displaying 10 hand-picked botanicals from all over the world used to create Bombay Sapphire Gin. The building was renovated in collaboration with award-winning designer Thomas Heatherwick, famous for the 2012 London Olympic Cauldron. In the same year, Bombay moved into cask-rested gin with the launch of Bombay Amber, which is rested in French vermouth barrels.
