Bacardi-owned gin brand Bombay Sapphire has launched another crystal decanter tie-up with the world's oldest jewellery house, Garrard.

The company said late last week that a limited edition crystal bottle and stopper will be released in the run-up to Christmas, to “celebrate the 250th anniversary of the secret recipe on which Bombay Sapphire gin is based”. A total of 350 bottles will be released globally, retailing at around GBP1,250 each (US$2,000).

Each of the bottles has been hand-crafted in England by Garrard, and will include a crystal crown-shaped stopper. Each decanter will also be packaged in a specially designed gift box.

Garrard was the crown jeweller to Queen Victoria.

Back in 2008, Bacardi teamed up with Garrard to produce Bombay Sapphire Revelation, a five-bottle limited offering with each decanter retailing for $20,000.
