Global gin brand takes painstaking measures and uses traditional methods to bring back the former paper mill's beauty
Hamilton, Bermuda, April 21, 2015 /3BL Media/ — Beyond the peeled paint, crumbled mortar, overgrown vegetation and general neglect, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® design crews could see that Laverstoke Mill, with its Georgian and Victorian architecture, had a good foundation. So when crews approached the renovation of the 170-year-old workers' cottages, they took extreme care and exercised great patience to return them to their authentic beauty, sustainably.
The BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Distillery at Laverstoke Mill not only distills gin, it also harvests energy. The facility captured the world's attention at its opening in mid-September as the number one premium gin brand unveiled how it re-captures energy with its state-of-the-art heat exchange system. The distillery is designed to operate with the greatest operational efficiencies to reduce energy use as it recycles residual heat which is a by-product from the unique "Vapour Infusion" technique used since 1836.
