A new era begins in the field of flavoured gin! BOMBAY SAPPHIRE, announces the launch of BOMBAY BRAMBLE, a new creative expression of gin bursting with natural flavours of blackberries and raspberries. This new variation is inspired by the classic Bramble cocktail, but with a modern twist.

Easy to mix and perfect for cocktail experimentation, BOMBAY BRAMBLE is the first flavoured gin from the brand and is set to add a twist of crimson colour and flavour to the classic G&T and a host of creative cocktails this year. The finest innovation and craftmanship sets this new gin apart. Instead of using artificial flavours, colours or additional sugar after distillation, freshly harvested blackberries and raspberries are used to create a rich fruit infusion, capturing the essence of the fruits when they are most ripe. BOMBAY BRAMBLE is then created by marrying the brand’s vapour distilled gin with 100% natural berry infusion, giving a distinct colour and flavour. This process allows the botanical and juniper notes of the gin to shine through for a more sophisticated taste.

Ivano Tonutti, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Master of Botanicals, commented: “The colour and flavour of BOMBAY BRAMBLE® comes only from botanicals and 100% natural fruit ingredients. The craftmanship 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, rich flavour profile.

Ryan Wainwright, National Ambassador BOMBAY SAPPHIRE North America, commented: “The launch of BOMBAY BRAMBLE means we can now offer even the most discerning gin drinkers a sophisticated fruit flavoured gin, while maintaining a balanced, premium taste profile that makes it ideal for cocktail creativity. We look forward to gin lovers discovering this new flavour, the rich-berried taste is bursting with natural flavours and is delicious served with tonic and a squeeze of lemon or in a selection of cocktails, with the added benefit of no artificial flavour or colour.”

The BOMBAY BRAMBLE Cocktails

The eponymously named Bramble cocktail is an example of a modern classic that allows BOMBAY BRAMBLE to shine. Served with crushed ice, this cocktail is an ideal drink to enjoy on a summer’s day. Due to the ripe, berried flavors 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 also plays the perfect role as the base in a reimagination of the classic Clover Club cocktail, championing its bold raspberry heritage whilst adding a twist of blackberries.
