Using the world’s first Gin Aroma Kit developed in collaboration with Dr. George Dodd of the Aroma Academy, participants learnt how smell, taste and trigeminal sensation define the flavour of the spirit.

Bombay Sapphire Gin was created in 1761 and is made with ten botanicals using the vapour infusion process. The neutral grain is pot distilled and as it heats to vapour, it moves up the columns towards the perforated copper baskets containing the botanicals. Infusion occurs then condensation before the high proof spirit is cut down to 40% ABV.

According to Raj, good gin should be like an orchestra, the sum of all its ingredients not individual components.

Bombay Sapphire is set to open a distillery on Laverstoke in south-west London later in 2013.

The Bombay Sapphire masterclass with Raj Nagra was held at O Bar in Sydney on Thursday 30 May 2013.
