All aboard! Bombay Sapphire magically transports gin-lovers around the world on gin train
By Angharad Welsh on Tuesday, June 20, 2017
Gin-lovers of the world can rejoice – as Bombay Sapphire’s blue gin train comes back to London this July.
The ‘immersive experience’ will see lucky ticket holders board The Grand Journey and ‘travel’ from places like Java to Ghana to Tuscany, all the while sipping on carefully created gin cocktails using botanicals from each region.
Michelin Star chef Tom Sellers will also be on board, serving a range of botanical-based dishes to match the cocktails at each destination.
The train will also feature performers, VR headsets and themed bars to fully immerse guests into each location.
Tickets go on sale on the 22nd June and the train will ‘depart’ from Banking Hall in Bank, London, between 17 and 23 July.
I’m not a massive gin fan, but I am a fan of this from Bombay Sapphire. It’s on-brand – cultivating an image of old-world decadence, sophisticated travel and exciting discovery – and has been picked up by media like Metro.co.uk and Pretty 52.
