Check out this berry good concoction!
The latest trend in 2020 is flavoursome spirits, and Bombay Sapphire is no exception. This month, the British gin manufacturer is announcing the launch of Bombay Bramble, a punchy gin bursting with the natural flavours of blackberries and raspberries that’s set to hit Australian shelves in September.
Inspired by the classic Bramble cocktail but with a modern twist, this lively addition to the Bombay’s growing range of gins will surely become an inspiration for future cocktail experimentations.
“The colour and flavours of the Bombay Bramble comes only from botanicals and 100% natural fruit ingredients,” said Ivano Tonutti, Bombay Sapphire’s master of botanicals. “The craftsmanship required to create the new gin took time and consideration.”
“Master distiller, Dr Anne Brock and I worked together to blend our gin with an alcoholic infusion of berries that have been harvested at their ripest moment – resulting in a unique, bold flavour profile.”
The Bramble cocktail is a sophisticated gin concoction, perfect for a summer afternoon lounging in the sun. But mixed with Bombay Bramble, it becomes a lighter and brighter rendition. Due to the ripe, berried flavours at the heart of the gin, this modern twist on the classic cocktail does not require blackberry liqueur and contains less sugar than an original Bramble recipe.
The gin is also a great substitute for the Clover Club cocktail, championing its bold raspberry heritage whilst adding a twist of blackberries.
But, when it comes down to it, nothing beats a simple gin and tonic. That’s what we recommend when it comes to sipping on this fruity distilled gin. The subtle crimson hue drawn from the gin creates a visually striking drink with a light, fresh and balanced taste.
The Bombay Bramble retails at $66 and will be available in bars and retailers across the country from September 2020.
