Bombay Sapphire 250th Anniversary Edition
London Dry Gin
Bombay Sapphire // England
Bombay Sapphire released this limited edition expression in 2011 to celebrate the 250th anniversary of their gin. It's Bombay's signature gin made with 10 botanicals (juniper, lemon, grains of paradise, coriander, cubeb berries, orris root, almonds, cassia bark, licorice, and angelica), but stored in a uniquely designed "bottle in a bottle" that consists of a handblown blue glass vessel stored inside a crystal bottle. On the outside are laser engraved designs of the brand's logo and images of the 10 botanicals used in its production. The bottle is topped with a crystal stopper, designed by British jewelry house Garrard, that resembles a crown set with blue crystals. Only 500 bottles were produced worldwide.
