Bombay Sapphire Afternoon Tea Bus Launch

Are you a gin lover and looking for something fun to do an evening with friends or a loved one? Maybe celebrating a particular occasion? Then we've got some great news for you - the Bombay Sapphire Afternoon Tea Bus launch we've all been awaiting is finally here! So if you're ready to embark on the most exciting gin-infused adventure London has to offer, read on...

Why Bombay Sapphire Gin?

We are very excited to introduce this new partnership with Bombay. Why? Bombay Sapphire gin has earned a fantastic reputation for its ability to "defy convention and push boundaries in the name of creative self-expression." In other words, they harness the power of creativity with the aim to design a better, more sustainable future. They're on a mission to be the most sustainable global gin, and we couldn't be prouder to support their vision and values.

Crafted from a 1761 recipe, Bombay Sapphire gin is made by expertly balancing a unique blend of 10 hand-selected botanicals sourced from all over the world. All of their botanicals are now 100% sustainably sourced through a direct relationship with their suppliers. Environmentally, economically, and ethically, they are sustainable. In fact, the company is committed to promoting sustainability throughout its supply chain by directly supporting suppliers, farmers, and local communities with the goal of improving their well-being and investing in sustainable practices for the future. We love how they do this by utilising creativity and collaboration.

Also, as a fun fact, did you know that every bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin is 100% recyclable and made from 1/3 recycled glass? We think that's really cool.

More about Bombay Sapphire Gin

But there's more! The Bombay Sapphire distillery at Laverstoke Mill has won a prestigious BREEAM sustainability award for its design. And it's also the home of the signature Vapour Infusion process, where the natural flavours of the botanicals are skilfully captured, resulting in the fresh and vibrant taste that's synonymous with Bombay Sapphire Gin.

If you haven't taken a trip to Hampshire (home of Bombay Sapphire), you should consider a distillery tour. And if you like gin and haven't yet tried this iconic London Dry Gin you're missing out! The distillation through their signature Vapour Infusion process combined with the use of 100% sustainable, hand-selected botanicals gives this drink a fresh and vibrant taste. We're talking bright citrus notes with a lively juniper character and ending with a lingering spice and elegant finish. Can you think of anything better?

The Bombay Sapphire G&T menu

Speaking of which, let us introduce you to our Bombay Sapphire gin cocktails:

  • Sapphire & Tonic. This is our signature G&T served with a lime wedge. It's dry, crisp, thirst-quenching, and fruity.
  • Bramble & Ginger. The botanical notes of Bombay Bramble pair perfectly with the tang of ginger to create a refreshing, slightly sweeter taste.
  • Citron Pressé & Tonic. This is a light and refreshing G&T with a lemon twist, served in a highball glass over cubed ice.

Have you booked your seat yet?

Hold on. There's more. We also have Bombay Sapphire-infused cakes and tarts (yes, you read that right). Here they are:

  • Bombay Sapphire Lemon Cupcake topped with gin-infused cream.
  • Bombay Bramble Mixed Berry Tart with gin-infused cream.
  • Bombay Sapphire & White Chocolate Whipped Ganache Verrine with gin-infused lime jelly.
  • Blueberry & Lemon Budnt Cake filled with gin-infused lemon curd & cream.
  • Lemon Slice Shortbread Cookie.

And it goes without saying that you'll also be able to enjoy our freshly prepared savouries, our warm scone with clotted cream and jam, and a selection of loose-leaf teas, coffees, or hot chocolate.
