In the mid-19th century, James Burroughs created Beefeater, the only gin produced in the heart of London. To develop it, he took inspiration from the royal guards, nicknamed Beefeaters, who protect the Tower of London. Even today, the recipe is still the same, even if it has remained absolutely secret: it is only transmitted by the Master Distiller in charge to his successor.
Beefeater is the most exported brand of Premium Gin in the world. It is an exceptionally fresh, pure and crisp gin with a subtle touch of citrus and fruit. The complexity of his recipe results in a spirit with a multidimensional character, at the same time balanced and complete. It is deal for creating the most delicious cocktails!
