at Laverstoke Mill, with surrounding neighbourhoods Hampshire and Basingstoke,
the Bombay Sapphire Distillery is located in a safe area with more than a
century unique history. This distillery platforms the maintenance, service area
and uniqueness behind every millilitre of Bombay Sapphire, and give a chance to
the guests to clarify the tastes of the botanicals which make the gin so exclusive.
The company’s culture bounce a start in 1761 when distiller
Thomas Dakin achieved an area in Warrington, England, with the idea of
distilling gin. Few years later, the Dakin family purchased a still, and transformed
it to isolate the curious botanicals from the neutral scrap life, collecting
the moods of the botanicals in the steam – crafter distillation method today
known as Vapour Infusion, and still faithfully used by Bombay Sapphire.
Nowadays, Bombay Sapphire sympathetically renovated
Laverstoke Mill into an up-to-date maintainable distillery that symbolise the ordinary
beauty and manufacturing tradition of the site. In building an innovative
distillery at Laverstoke Mill each reasonable strength has been made to confirm
the processes and stocks are as ecological and competent as possible.

The Bombay Sapphire distillery is situated within a
Conservation Area and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) in rural
Hampshire. The River Trial streams through the location building exclusive
wetland environment throughout the distillery. The test is the brightness chalk
stream in the UK including some natural classes that lives in the river
including brown trout, otters, kingfishers, herons,
ducks, swans and others.
In redecorating the area to become a modern distillery,
Bombay Sapphire has kept the best maintenance of the ecosystem and natural atmosphere
of this momentous location. Every effort was done to defend and meaningfully
enhance the site where possible counting the succeeding actions:
temporary re-homing by hand of over 400 fish prior to construction.
temporary re-homing of numerous bat classes.
Bat containers and
rooftop entree installed in various buildings on site to encourage
industrial buildings covering the River Test demolished to enable access to the
river for all distillery guests.
various aquatic plants to encourage further biodiversity along the river.
No water from the
River Test is used during the distillation process.
