An edition of Bombay Sapphire’s gin inspired by the flavors of the east, adding Thai lemongrass and Vietnamese black peppercorns for more spice and a hint of citrus.
Bombay Sapphire East Gin is an interesting extension of the Bombay Sapphire brand. It features all of the botanicals from Bombay Sapphire (juniper, grains of paradise, lemon peel, cubeh berries, coriander seeds, angelica root, almond, orris, and licorice) 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.
