The Bombay Sapphire Distillery and Visitor Centre at Laverstoke Mill opened to the public on the 1st October 2014.

The heart of the complex of 40 beautifully restored buildings is the unique the two Intertwining botanical glasshouses where the 10 botanicals – juniper, lemon peel, grains of paradise, coriander, cubeb berries, orris root, almonds, cassia bark, liquorice, angelica – that make up the Bombay               Sapphire botanical recipe are grown.

Designed by Thomas Heatherwick (responsible for the iconic cauldron at the London Olympic Games) they represent a stunning feat of engineering and design.
