Bombay Sapphire East Gin (42%, 84 proof) is a unique extension of the Bombay Sapphire brand. The signature Bombay Saphire taste remains present with lemon peels, almond, licorice, juniper, and grains of paradise. However, lemongrass and black pepper add a new twist.
As with Bombay Sapphire, the Bombay Sapphire East is a lighter style gin. The lemon and lemongrass really stand out with the hints of black pepper and juniper not far behind. The finish is surprisingly smooth considering the new entry of spices.
Tasting the original and this new version side-by-side, it’s the pepper within the taste that sets them apart. Overall it’s a very good tasting gin and if you are already a fan of Bombay Sapphire, you will enjoy this variation, especially in a gin and tonic these flavors blend well and align nicely with each other
