As the name would suggest, this is the original Bombay gin, predating the now better-known Bombay Sapphire. It was conceived by American entrepreneur Allan Subin, who was inspired by one of the oldest known English dry gin recipes, created by Thomas Dakin in 1761. It launched in the USA in 1960.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 15/07/2012


Crystal clear.


Coriander, juniper and citrus with hints of Olbas oil tablets.


Juniper, citrus and coriander flavours predominate with liquorice, parma violet and an underlying rootiness. Superbly structured.


Lingering juniper freshness with liquorice and parma violets.
