Vapour infusion is used when gin distillers desire to produce a more delicate style. Bombay Sapphire is the best-known example of a gin that is exclusively vapour- infused, using 10 selectively chosen botanicals such as almond, angelica, cassia, coriander, cubeb pepper, grains of paradise, juniper, lemon, licorice and orris root. Bombay Sapphire is a balanced, classic-style gin with the juniper gracefully supported by all of the other botanicals. The Southside is a cocktail that is simple and complex, needing a gin like Bombay Sapphire to bring it all together. There is cocktail versatility in a gin that embodies balance, allowing it to dance between contemporary and classic cocktails.
