Bars around the UK and across the rest of Europe have created unique serves to celebrate the 10 botanicals used to make Bombay Sapphire gin.It is delivered as a multi-sensory experience, coming in a bespoke vessel that looks like a cassia tree. It allows the cocktail to flow like it has been tapped from the tree itself. The drink is served in a small pho noodle bowl which you hold in your hands and sip from. The garnish is an “electric daisy” which creates a numbing effect in the mouth.

Each person who orders the drink is asked if they would like to enjoy it in the bar’s experiential “jungle”. One of the areas in the bar has been turned into a room filled with plants to recreate the Vietnamese jungle where Bombay Sapphire finds its cassia bark.

We humans will never know how meadows or mountains smell, but deer and horses and pigs do. Bando sniffs deeply and shakes his head. We were left out when it comes to smelling things, he says. I would love to be able to smell a mountain and follow my nose to it.
