Bombay Sapphire Sunset is available to independent convenience stores now for a limited time, with an RRP of £23.

The gin flavour is ideal for making cocktails and aims to capture shoppers looking to explore and discover new drinks, as well as help retailers capitalise on the boom in gin.

The limited-edition line has a higher ABV of 43% to enable a heightened concentration of spices, and uses a mandarin to delivery a citrus taste for shoppers to enjoy early in the evening.

Bombay Sapphire enters RTD market

The launch is the second gin in the brand’s series of special-edition lines, following the launch of Bombay Sapphire English Estate in 2019.

Natasha Curtin, global VP at Bombay Sapphire, says: “As the global gin boom continues to thrive, we remain dedicated to championing creativity and craftmanship in our products. The special-editions are unique and contemporary expressions of Bombay Sapphire gin, each inspired by the natural world from which we source our botanicals.”
