Bacardi has launched a "super-premium" extension to its Bombay Sapphire gin portfolio.

Star of Bombay will be available in global Travel Retail, initially through Heinemann in Sydney airport from this month, Bacardi said today. The gin uses two additional botanicals to Bombay Sapphire - Bergamot Orange Peel and Ambrette Seed - and a slower distillation process, the company said.

Yesterday, the Bermuda-based company confirmed to just-drinks it is moving ahead with plans to lay off around 10% of its staff in North America.
