Bombay Sapphire, the world’s number one premium gin by value and the fastest-growing premium gin, has announced that the doors to its gin distillery and brand home, Laverstoke Mill in Hampshire, England, will open to the public on 1st October 2014.

The mill, which dates back to the 10th century, has been completely renovated by The Bombay Spirits Company, undergoing a multi-million pound restoration to the brown-field site which covers two hectares of the British countryside and is steeped in natural beauty, astride the crystal clear River Test.

For 200 years, the site produced high quality paper for the bank notes of India and the British Empire and was historically associated with the finest quality product. Now the newly renovated site provides an opportunity for the public to learn more about the illustrious history of Laverstoke Mill and the unique Vapour Infusion distillation process of Bombay Sapphire gin.

Every effort has been made to ensure that Laverstoke Mill is transformed into a state-of-the-art premium gin distillery and visitor experience, encompassing the highest standards in design, functionality and sustainability. Last year, the distillery was recognised as the first distillery and first refurbishment to achieve an ‘Outstanding’ design-stage BREEAM (Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method) accreditation for its distillery process buildings.

The vision for the site was headed by acclaimed London designer Thomas Heatherwick and his team at Heatherwick Studio, whose ambition for the project focused on restoration of the buildings and grounds, whilst introducing a new structure that complements the natural beauty of the site. The centerpiece, inspired by Britain’s rich heritage of Victorian glasshouse structures, is the two intertwining Botanical Glasshouses – one tropical, one temperate – specifically designed to showcase examples of the 10 hand-selected botanicals from around the world, used in every bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin.

Valerie Brass, global marketing director of Bombay Sapphire gin, says: “This is a truly exciting time for Bombay Sapphire as we open our doors to the public worldwide and share our story with them for the first time. Our aim was to create a world class distillery, built to mirror the fundamental principles of our brand — beauty, creation and integrity. Everything we do from our iconic blue bottle, to the 10 exotic Bombay Sapphire botanicals and our unique Vapour Infusion process, demonstrate our commitment to quality and innovation in gin distillation.”

Bombay Sapphire is part of the Bacardi portfolio of brands.
