Star of Bombay Gin
Star of Bombay Gin, is a variation of Bombay's main product Bombay Sapphire, but has Bergamot orange peel from Calabria and Ambrette seed from Ecuador added in. It is in the style of a London dry gin and is juniper led in taste. It is named after a 182-carat cabochon-cut violet-blue star sapphire from Sri Lanka. The gem was presented to Mary Pickford, the silent film star by her husband, Douglas Fairbanks.
The use of not quite ripe berries being harvested for the gin means that the flavour of the gin is fresh and citrusy. For a garnish I would use raspberries and a spring of mint to bring out the fresh summer flavours. During the winter a slice of orange, flamed is a lovely way to end the day.
