Bombay Sapphire honours the Tom Collins in new gin


Bombay Sapphire is paying homage to a classic gin cocktail, the Tom Collins, in a new gin: Bombay Citron Pressé.

This distilled gin captures the aroma and flavour of zesty, hand-picked Mediterran­ean lemons in a natural fruit infusion which is blended with the brand’s vapour-distilled London Dry Gin and bottled without added sugar. Bombay Sapphire says that the new expression plays into the growing trend for at-home cocktail making.

It follows the launch of the Bacardi-owned distillery’s first flavoured gin, Bombay Bramble, in 2020, which is inspired by and named after another popular gin cocktail.

Bombay Citron Pressé is the brand’s second recent release celebratin­g the humble lemon. Premier Cru Murcian Lemon, a new innovation from Bombay Sapphire master distiller Dr Anne Brock and master of botanicals Ivano Tonutti, launched in October 2021 and showcases the flavour of a single harvest of Spanish citrus fruits.

Bombay Citron Pressé (37.5% ABV) will be available to buy from the Bombay Sapphire Distillery, Ocado, and other major retailers from 18 April (recommende­d price £23), as well as at bars and restaurant­s across the UK.
