The world’s leading premium gin brand, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE®, continues to push the creative boundaries of flavour innovation with the launch of BOMBAY CITRON PRESSÉ - a new distilled gin, that captures the taste of freshly squeezed Mediterranean lemons, perfectly balanced with the vibrant juniper notes of the brand’s London Dry Gin.

This fresh, vibrant gin is the result of a highly crafted infusion process. Instead of adding artificial additives and sugars typical to flavoured spirits, BOMBAY CITRON PRESSÉ contains hand-picked Mediterranean lemons, which have been harvested early in the season to capture their zesty, citrus notes before being hand-peeled and concentrated to create a 100% natural fruits infusion. This infusion is then married with the brand’s vapour infused gin – perfectly balancing the taste of freshly squeezed lemons, whilst enriching the juniper notes of the gin. The real fruits infusion with no added sugar gives BOMBAY CITRON PRESSÉ a distinct colour

Bombay Sapphire is the world's number one premium gin by value. Based on a 1761 recipe, Bombay Sapphire gin is created by perfectly balancing a unique combination of 10 hand-selected exotic botanicals from around the world. The BOMBAY distillery at Laverstoke Mill has won a BREEAM award for sustainability and is the home of the unique Vapour Infusion process, where the natural flavours of the botanicals are skillfully captured, resulting in the fresh and vibrant taste with which Bombay Sapphire is synonymous.
