START OF BOMBAY
If you ask for gins in general, everyone will tell you that the best-selling brands are Beefeater, Tanqueray, Seagrans and Bombay apart from others like MG, Larios or Gordons. Today we are going to talk about one of them but in its premium version as it is The Star of Bombay.Star of Bombay is named after the famous jewel given to Mary Pickford by her husband. The jewel was a violet blue violet sapphire of 182 carats that is now known as the star of Bombay. This gin is produced in small quantities in Laverstoke Mill (England), as many of them have used an artisanal process called «distillation». unique «and in batches.The original recipe dates back to 1761.In 2015 it was presented, and follows the recipe of the original Bombay, but with two more botanists.Nikolas Fordman, the master distiller, was inspired when the stills were rehoused in the distillery of Laverstoke.The idea with Star of Bombay was to create a gin that would increase the perception of the Bombay style with the best botanicals. To better conserve the twelve botanicals, we slow down the process of steam infusion and distill them for a longer time. Test every 20 minutes and thus achieve your best balance. The bottle is taller, thinner and has a slight inclination. On the nose, the first thing you notice is the juniper, combined with citrus air, and you also notice a slight floral touch.

On the palate, predominance of juniper, floral notes of ambreta and citrus touches of bergamot.
