BOMBAY SAPPHIRE

On Wednesday 6th June 2018 the first Muse on Booze Summer of Gin kicked off with the barn stormer that is Tanqueray No.Ten. Thirteen smashing Gins later we concluded the Summer with Caorunn and all was well with the world.

June 2019 then bowled along and this time the opener was the worldy known as Dry Island from Four Pillars x Herno. Another Summer of superstars then ensued and on the last day of August we finished up with Keepr’s Honey Gin which was accompanied by an oat biscuit side instead of a garnish! Simply sensational!!

And this, the final Summer of Gin, teed off at the beginning of June with the genius of Malfy Con Arancia. We have smashed through a Gin every mid week since. But here we now are. The very final Gin of all the Summers of Gin. Sad but true.

Before we lead onto the last one Sammy & Jymi want to thank Harry, Mikey, Tom, Oli, Matt, JP, Sabrina, Rob, and Alice for helping us make the last three years happen! We know putting together a GnT and taking a picture of it isn’t the worst job in the world but nevertheless, we could not have done it without you.

And a final huge thank you to Chris Hotson (spirits_and_soul on Instagram) for guiding us though alternate serves and recommending, if not dreaming up the majority of cocktails for the Gins we have put forward over the last three summers. We really, really could not have done it without you. Legend.

Anyway, over the last three Summers we have come across Samphire, Chilli and Purple Sage as a garnish. We have put Lemonade, Orange Juice and Ginger Ale in our Gin. We have had Yuzu and Elderflower in our Tonic and Smoke and Absinthe has made it into cocktails…

But when all is said and done the Gin we bring you this evening is not just a stalwart, it’s banging… and affordable. Bung a tin of Schweppes its way and chuck a slice of lime in and well, you won’t go far wrong x

Peace, Love and Gin
