About Bombay Sapphire Sunset Special Edition Gin

Bombay Sapphire's roots go back to 1761 when Thomas Dakin set out to build a gin distillery at a freshly-purchased site in Warrington, England. The family kept perfecting the recipe of their Warrington Gin, acquiring a copper still in 1831 and adapting it for vapor infusion, the artisanal process that captures the botanicals, aromas and flavors in vapor ― the same distillation process used by Bombay Sapphire today. After changing hands a couple of times, the distillery along with the recipe was relaunched in 1986, bringing the Warrington Gin recipe into modern times as Bombay Sapphire, a hugely influential brand that played a major role in the spirit's surge of popularity.

Laverstoke Mill is as a historic building as they come, with the earliest written record of a mill at the location dating back to 1086. Having been owned by William the Conqueror and Henry VIII, the site has seen 4 royal visits in its rich history. In 1719 the mill was leased by printer Henry Portal and used for the manufacture of banknotes throughout the reign of Queen Victoria. During this time, several expansions were carried out in order to increase production. It was in 2010 that Bombay Spirits Company purchased Laverstoke Mill, opening the distillery doors to the public in 2014.

About Gin

According to Winston Churchill, "The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen's lives and minds than all the doctors in the Empire," referring to the British officers using it to treat malaria in India.


Initially made for medicinal purposes, gin gets most of its flavor from the juniper berries added after the distillation process. It sure has come a long way from the Middle Ages, with the introduction of new botanicals, fruits, and spices, bringing it closer to people of all flavor varieties.
