Bombay Sapphire wins Gold & Double Gold

Bombay Sapphire has been awarded the prestigious Double Gold and Gold medal at the 17th San Francisco World Spirits Competition by a panel of 43 international spirits experts including Tony Abou-Ganim, Master-Mixologist and one of the leading pioneers of America’s craft cocktail movement. 

The SFWSC is considered to be the most influential spirits competition in the world and 2017 was the biggest in its 17-year history, featuring more than 2,100 entries.

The Double Gold designation is awarded to the very few entries that receive Gold medal ratings by all members of the judging panel – naming Bombay Sapphire as one of the finest products in the world.

“Bombay Sapphire really is leading the resurgence of gin” commented Raj Nagra, Bombay Sapphire Global Brand Ambassador, “and we’re delighted that the ceaseless passion and endeavour that goes into creating our exquisite liquid, as demonstrated by our Master of Botanicals Ivano Tonutti who travels the world to hand-source our botanicals, has been recognised in such a prestigious competition.”

Bombay Sapphire is the world’s number one premium gin by value. Bombay Sapphire’s distillery at Laverstoke Mill has won a ‘Breeam’ award for sustainability and is the home of Bombay Sapphire’s unique Vapour Infusion process. The Bombay Sapphire brand is part of the portfolio of the Bacardi group of companies, including Bacardi International, headquartered in Hamilton, Bermuda.

Bombay Sapphire is distributed by Edward Dillon & Co. Contact our sales office on 01 8193300.
