Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin Vapor Infused

Today I am reviewing gin for the first time in my blog. It is Bombay Sapphire London Dry gin-Vapor infused. Reads the product label, "Hand selected exotic botanicals" from a 1761 recipe. It comes in a solid light blue colored glass bottle and is very inviting. This is interesting, according to their website they take their botanicals very seriously and source it from ten different exotic locations from around the world. Following are the ingredients sourced-
1.Juniper Berries from Italy
2. Lemon Peel from Spain
3.Coriander from Morocco
4.Angelica(Root) from Saxony
5. Orris(Iris Root) from Italy
6.Grains of Paradise from West Africa
7.Cubeb berries from Java
8. Cassia Bark from Indo-China
9. Almonds from Spain10. Liquorice from China

Now it is time for the best part- the tasting,enjoy my notes below and sip along if you wish!
