Bombay Sapphire is adding a splash of colour to their offering ahead of a summer of gin-related events. Bombay Sapphire’s blue, edible gin-infused paint will take the most standard G&T and make it really pop. Ponsonby’s Bedford Soda & Liquor, and The Glass Goose in the CBD will be the first bars to stock this unique product. Additionally, both of these locations will be transformed this summer into Bombay Sapphire-inspired retreats, bursting in botanical flavours. Here, gin lover will be able to mix and match their own cocktails using a range of provided garnishes. The bars will both also serve hand-crafted cocktails by expert mixologist, Frankie Walker.

“We are delighted to bring Bombay Sapphire blue paint to New Zealand gin lovers, who we know are always keen to explore new and creative twists on the traditional G&T,” said Nicola Fenwick, senior brand manager of Bombay Sapphire. “We’re encouraging visitors to The Glass Goose and Bedford Soda & Liquor to explore their creativity by experimenting with flavours and garnishes—and of course, the edible paint—to develop a signature Bombay and Tonic that’s so good, it’s worth naming.”
