Star of Bombay is a higher-strength, super-premium variant of Bombay Sapphire. The classic notes of juniper, angelica and coriander have been intensified, with the addition of bergamot and ambrette seeds offering extra exoticness. A rich and intense gin. I love the more intense flavour. It is great in a classic Gin and Tonic or Gin and Soda. But it also makes for richer cocktails. One of my new favourites is the Star of Bombay Galaxy Espresso Negroni. I love a good Negroni and this is a great riff on it. The coffee flavour adds more complexity to the flavour and a little hit of caffeine (lol).
