It was the English guards of the Tower of London, called Beefeaters, who inspired the name James Burroughs gave to his gin in 1863. Even today, Beefeater is still distilled in the heart of London, in one of the nine still active distilleries of the city, but the recipe is supersecret, handed down only by the master distiller to his successor.
Beefeater is a Premium Gin exported all over the world, with an exceptionally fresh, pure and sparkling character. The complexity of its composition gives it captivating subtle notes of citrus and fruit, for a balanced, complete and multifaceted taste.
Try it as an ingredient for exceptional cocktails, such as the B&T, the ultimate Gin Tonic, which mixes one part Beefeater and 2 parts tonic water. Or again, try the K-YA Martini, ideal as an aperitif thanks to its bitter taste obtained by mixing 4 parts Beefeater and 1 part dry red vermouth.
