The Beefeaters are the English guards in charge of protecting the Tower of London, although the official name would be Yo Men Warders. It was they who inspired the name James Burroughs gave his gin in 1863. To this day, Beefeater is still distilled in one of the few remaining distilleries in London, and the shape of the bottle in which it is presented recalls that of the Tower of London. Is there a better definition of London Dry Gin?
Beefeater is one of the best selling Premium Gin in the world, with a fresh, pure and sparkling character. The complexity of its composition gives it subtle notes of citrus and vegetables, for a balanced, complete and multi-faceted taste. The recipe, however, has remained secret and is known only by the Master Distiller.
The 1.5 liter version is ideal for lovers of mixology! Try it as an ingredient for exceptional cocktails, such as Gin Tonic, London Spritz and Mulled Gin Punch.
