On Friday the 16th of March Bombay Sapphire Gin celebrated the 250th anniversary of the in 1761 recipe upon which their gin is based. The event's location and bites were original and tasty, the tunes were cool and – of course – the Bombay cocktails were heavenly.
For the 250th anniversary Bombay let world's oldest jeweller house Gerrard design a limited edition bottle with a jewelled crystal stopper. One of the invitees could win this beautiful bottle through a tombola and it happened to be one of my good friends, Geoffrey de Groot, who won the bottle. The lucky bastard!
The event took place at Ten Club in Amsterdam. I had never been to Ten Club before, so I was really curious about visiting this brand new spot. The interior was raw and mysterious, yet luxurious and robust. The perfect location for an event like this!
Famous Flavours was responsible for the tasty snacks, which were all prepared with Bombay's gin as one of the ingredients. Very original! The bites were all served by the gorgeous hostesses from Showpony Productions. All of them were dressed in Bombay's colour: sapphire blue. To make it all complete the lovely DJ's Claire & Sheila Hill provided us with some nice tunes.
It was an evening with lots of panache and the perfect start for the weekend. Cheers to Bombay Sapphire!
