I did and it was all sorts of amazing.
There’s nothing I love more than good food and a tasty drink, so I was very happy to discover that Bombay Sapphire provided both as part of their unique pop-up in London which took guests on a ‘grand’ sensory journey through the countries which help make their gin so special.
The Grand Journey is a global project which is taking place from October to December and has been travelling across six European cities; Antwerp, London, Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin and Amsterdam.
Guests hop on board the train to enjoy a virtual passage to the 10 botanical locations used to create the gin and the fun all kicked off in London back in October.
I had no idea what to expect but was immediately swept into the spirit of it all thanks to the actors and the amazing looking train.
Once onboard, the visual illusion windows made it feel like we were moving and slowly each course and matching drink was served to match each stop along the journey.
The taster dishes were created by The Robin Collective and paired with creative drinks from award-winning Canadian mixologist Geoff Robinson.
My favourite was the jelly with the angelica flower in the middle because I’m an absolute sucker for pretty presentation.
At the end of the journey, we got off at the world famous Laverstoke Distiller – the home of Bombay Sapphire – and guzzled down several of Bombay Sapphire’s Ultimate Gin and Tonic.
We also got to enjoy a virtual tour of the Distiller using one of those virtual reality headpieces which was pretty cool.
It was definitely one of the most memorable experiences I’ve enjoyed during my life in London.
Have you been on the grand journey in the past few months?
