While baking might be a science, Bombay Sapphire asked everyone’s favorite science guy, Bill Nye, to help with the launch of its new gin and tonic canned cocktail. Even though cocktails are all about enjoyable sipping, that perfectly nuanced flavor isn’t just a happy accident. Science and craft play a role in that satisfying sip.
Recently canned cocktails have been a big beverage trend. Even though many people have honed their master mixologist skills, the reality is that convenience can be a factor. When beer drinkers can just pop open a can, cocktail fans want that option, too.
Going into warmer months, a gin and tonic is often a refreshing cocktail choice. From the gin botanicals to the effervescence of the tonic, the simple cocktail can quench a thirst on a hot day.
Even though some people might like to bring their bar cart with them, the reality is that many occasions make it difficult. From the day at the beach to a backyard barbecue, there are times when a can is just an easier choice.
Why is Bill Nye enjoying a Bombay Sapphire gin and tonic canned cocktail?
Many people turn to Bill Nye not only for his science knowledge but also for his quick turn of a phrase. Through a series of three videos, Nye will explain the hows, whats and why gin is that liquor many people have come to love.

As seen by Nye, the Bombay Sapphire gin and tonic canned cocktail is just like the enjoyable beverage that is mixed at home. Created by Bacardi Limited’s Master of Botanicals Ivano Tonutti and Bombay Sapphire Master Distiller Anne Brock, the pre-mixed cocktail does not compromise on flavor. It is a sophisticated beverage just served in a more convenient form.
The new Bombay Sapphire gin and tonic canned cocktail is available at stores now. Each can is 250mL and has a 5.9% ABV. It is sold in a 4-pack with a suggested retail price of $12.99.
