Bombay Sapphire commits to 100% sustainable botanicals

Bombay Sapphire has announced it is on track to have all 10 of its botanical ingredients be certified sustainable in 2021.

The premium gin brand, which is part of Bacardi’s portfolio, claimed it will be the first major brand made with 100% sustainably sourced botanicals after decades spent carefully building sustainable partnerships with farmers and suppliers.

With the suppliers of eight already certified according to the For Life standard, the goal is for the remaining two producers — for grains of paradise from Ghana and liquorice from China — to be certified in the months which follow the lifting of travel restrictions.

The move is part of Bacardi’s initiative to sourcing 100% of its key ingredients from sustainably certified suppliers by 2025.

The 10 botanicals, which include juniper from Tuscany, coriander from Morocco, lemon peel from Spain and cubeb berries from Java, are hand selected by Bombay Sapphire Master of Botanicals Ivano Tonutti to create the gin’s distinct taste.
