Cocktail of the Week from Bombay Sapphire
Orient Express is an exotic new gin cocktail created by The Marker’s expert mixology team and designed to showcase Star of Bombay, Bombay Sapphire’s new, distinctive, super-premium gin.
Star of Bombay elevates the complexity and smoothness of Bombay Sapphire through the addition of two extra botanicals, gently dried bergamot orange peel, sourced from the mountains of Calabria, Southern Italy, and ambrette seeds, from the tropical yellow hibiscus flower grown in Ecuador.
The elegant liquid captured in each bottle is achieved by slowing down the signature Vapour infusion process to increase the level of extraction from the botanicals, building richer aromas and more intense flavours. It is produced in small quantities at Bombay Sapphire’s state-of-the-art distillery at Laverstoke Mill in Hampshire, England.
Concocted by The Marker’s head bartender, Johnny Grozavu, Orient Express combines this extraordinary gin with the floral and fruity taste of homemade hibiscus syrup, fresh, citrusy lime juice, and fragrant Nepalese Timur peppercorns. This cocktail is certain to entice all of the senses with its rich aroma, intensely alluring taste and creative serve – a truly luxurious evening indulgence.
