Refresh your G&Ts and elevate your summer cocktails with Bombay Citron Pressé A new vibrant gin bursting with the taste of freshly-squeezed Mediterranean lemons Inspired by the Tom Collins cocktail, Bombay Citron Pressé is a celebration of the familiar with a twist
Bombay Sapphire, unveils a new creative expression with Bombay Citron Pressé – a vibrant gin that beautifully captures the taste of freshly squeezed Mediterranean lemons. Inspired by the classic Tom Collins
cocktail, Bombay Citron Pressé offers a modern twist and is a lively addition to the brand's range of premium gins. With a tantalising taste profile and an eye-catching colour, this new gin has been created with a 100% natural fruit infusion and no added sugar. Certain to refresh your summer drinks, Bombay Citron Pressé is the perfect gin for elevating simple cocktails and inspiring creative twists.
Similar to Bombay Bramble, the brand's first flavoured gin, Bombay Citron Pressé showcases the finest innovation and craftmanship. This natural expression of flavour marries the vapour-infused London Dry Gin with a complex blend of lemon infusion and juice, bringing a fresh, zesty taste to their classic gin base whilst still allowing the botanicals (and juniper) to shine through. The bespoke blend captures the true flavour of fresh Mediterranean lemons that are harvested early in the season to capture the zestful, citrus sour notes of the lemons at its most intense. This approach differs from the more common practice of using highly concentrated artificial flavours and colours found in other offerings on the market today.
Bombay Sapphire Master Distiller, Dr Anne Brock explains, "When crafting Bombay Citron Pressé, it was so important that only the best ingredients were used, combined with a distinct production process.
Master of Botanicals, Ivano Tonutti ensures that the highest quality Mediterranean lemons are harvested at
their ultimate ripeness to truly showcase the very best flavours that nature has to offer. We know that people
are searching for natural, premium spirits and Bombay Citron Pressé delivers this with a wonderfully bright
and fragrant taste. Zesty lemon is underpinned by the classic notes of our vapour infused gin, providing a
natural sweetness and a brilliant base for a host of delicious cocktails."
As with all Bombay Sapphire gins, the possibilities for cocktail experimentation are endless and with its
natural colour and taste, Bombay Citron Pressé is easy to mix and the perfect canvas for gin fans to celebrate their cocktail creativity. Easily served as a refreshing twist on the classic G&T, garnished with a squeezed lemon wedge, it is the ideal tipple to complement balmy summer days spent with friends. Paying homage to the cocktail that inspired this new gin, Bombay Citron Pressé can also be enjoyed in an Ultimate Tom Collins, made over ice and complete with fresh, juicy lemon and a splash of soda water. The citrus-filled gin also works beautifully in more complex cocktails, like an irresistibly refreshing Southside Fizz which uses champagne and served in a chilled coupette, ideal for those special, celebratory occasions.
Bombay Sapphire Brand Ambassador, Corina Retter, says "with summer right around the corner I'm so excited for people to discover the zesty taste of Bombay Citron Presse. I love using Bombay Citron Presse in a simple but delicious twist on a G&T – its bright refreshing and perfect for summer entertaining. For something extra special, you could try a Southside Fizz, a sophisticated twist on a classic cocktail made using lime juice, mint and topped with champagne. Easy to make it's a cocktail that elevates any occasion finishing with a delicate citrus flavour profile."
