All the notes of the new limited edition Bombay Sapphire English Estate project and the right cocktail recipe to toast the coming season
That of gin and tonic is a ritual that we made our own and customized to the point that it is not uncommon to ask this or that gin at a local bar. Investigate with the bartender about which bottle he is willing to offer us, implying that when we talk about this distillate, a world of aromas, scents and dreams opens up. And in a world so rich in proposals, nothing prevents us from referring to a different gin at different times of the day or season after season. And if in the coming summer we still have few traces, from Bombay Sapphire comes the first clue on what will be the hottest season 2019. Close your eyes and imagine holding in your hands Pennyroyal mint, dog rose and toasted hazelnuts. Now open them and take a sip of the Limited Edition English Summer. The sun is high and we are walking in the English countryside.

It is a beautiful place surrounded by nature and perfectly represents the atmosphere that reigns in the English countryside which was my source of inspiration for the creation of the Limited Edition English Summer. A gin that speaks of the place where it was born and that was created by me and Ivano Tonutti (Master of Botanicals by BOmbay Sapphire) to elevate the classic Bombay Sapphire and give it a summer connotation "told us Anne Brock. «Ivano and I have added three botanicals with different characteristics to the classic recipe (Pennyroyal mint, dog rose and toasted hazelnuts) and we have worked to create a harmony that does not hide the more authentic character of our traditional gin. It was a complex creative process that we carried out as a team to create a perfumed, balanced and round limited edition, perfect for the preparation of many different cocktails .
