Global gin brand, Bombay Sapphire, has released its higher ABV (47%) expression Cru, in Australia.
Created as a celebration of craftsmanship, people, and provenance, Cru utilises a combination of lemons, mandarins and sweet Navel oranges, all sourced from the region of Murcia in Spain, for a bittersweet yet balanced taste that is bold and bright while remaining remarkably smooth and refined.
With a complex yet balanced flavour profile providing a unique citrus foundation for a variety of creative cocktails, Bombay Sapphire Premier Cru is the perfect gin to transform any occasion into something truly special.
Ivano Tonutti, Bombay Sapphire Master of Botanicals works closely with suppliers across the globe to source the highest quality ingredients.
“I am delighted to showcase the work of our suppliers and farmers in Murcia, many of whom I’ve known personally for over 20 years,” Tonutti said. “Each lemon has been hand-picked at its ripest moment in small quantities during the late harvest season, using skilful techniques passed down from generation to generation.”
Each small batch is personally and precisely cut by Master Distiller, Dr Anne Brock, showcasing the best of the harvest and ensuring every bottle is consistent year on year – a fitting tribute to Murcia, the suppliers and farmers’ craftsmanship. This London Dry Gin contains no artificial flavours or essences and draws all its flavour solely from the botanicals and the distillation process alone.
Bombay Sapphire’s Master Distiller, Dr Anne Brock said, “We are delighted that gin fans will soon be trying this stunning new expression, which is a multifaceted celebration of renowned Murcian citrus.
“I am incredibly proud of the meticulous processes used to produce Bombay Sapphire Premier Cru, from the skilled sourcing and preparation of botanicals to my role in carefully adapting every small batch of gin to bring out the nuances of the late harvest during distillation, amplifying the unique characteristics and finest flavours into a consistent flavour profile every year.
Bombay Sapphire Premier Cru is sure to impress and delight gin lovers everywhere with its distinct, yet subtle citrus flavour profile that shines in a wide array of cocktails, lending itself beautifully to iconic drinks such as the French 75 or a classic martini cocktail with a lemon twist.
