Bombay Sapphire Laverstoke Mill Distillery Description

There’s been a mill on the site in Laverstoke since 903 AD. Before it was producing award-winning Gin, the site was used as a water treatment facility, and before that, a paper factory. Bombay Sapphire production first began in 1761, when Thomas Dakin purchased a plot of land with the intention of using it to distil Gin.
The Dakin family bought a still a few decades later, and adapted it so the botanicals sat above the neutral base spirit, whereby the vapor would rise up and infuse with the botanicals, before cooling, condensing, and transforming into Gin.
The process, called vapor infusion, is still used to make Bombay Sapphire today. In the late 1800s, the Dakin family sold their distillery, and their recipe for vapor infused Gin, to G&J Greenalls – the second largest producer of spirits in the UK today.
It wasn’t until 1985 that a new Gin was launched, based on the Bombay Original Gin recipe, as a lighter style Gin to rival the popular Vodka brands of the time. Bombay Sapphire Gin as we know it today was born.
