The Bombay Sapphire distillery at Laverstoke Mill includes two stunning glasshouses.
The refurbished Laverstoke Mill provides visitors with an inspirational journey of how Bombay Sapphire gin is created. The two stunning glasshouses contain examples of the botanicals that are added to the gin to give it its unique flavour.
Making Bombay Sapphire gin requires a lot of heat so, as part of The Laverstoke Mill redevelopment, a specialist heat exchange system was installed to put that heat to good use.
“At the distillery, what goes around comes around as the heat used to fire the stills is channelled back from India House, the distillation room, through a series of unobtrusive pipelines to warm the property’s buildings and the gorgeous glasshouses, which are a main focal point at the renovated distillery,” says Bombay Sapphire Master Distiller Nik Fordham.
Climate Controls Ltd were appointed to install their MS100 Environment Control system and a low pressure air / water fog system in the two, Heatherwick Studio designed, glasshouses. Having evolved over the last 30 years, the MS100 is well proven to deliver measurably accurate control within an enclosed glasshouse environment.
