Developed by Master Distiller Desmond Payne, who has over 40 years of experience, Beefeater 24 is made with 12 botanicals, two of which are known for their uniqueness and rarity: Japanese Sencha tea and Chinese green tea.
It is precisely the addition of Japanese Sencha tea and Chinese green tea to the botanicals that gives Beefeater 24 its unique aroma and softness. The addition of grapefruit peels also guarantees the distinctive citrus taste. The result is a surprising gin, perfect for making cocktails.
Since 2017, this London Dry Gin has been available in a beautiful and elaborate red bottle. The bottle is shaped like the Tower of London and is decorated with Victorian-style flowers and some crows, animals which have made the tower their home.

The Beefeater Distillery is located in Kennington, London. It was James Burrough, a London pharmacist alive during the second half of the nineteenth century, who created the recipe for this gin. In 1987, the distillery was sold to Whitbread and in 2005 it was acquired by Pernod Ricard. The name chosen by Burrough for his gin refers to the Yeomen Warders, the guardians of the Tower of London, nicknamed Beefeaters.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: The production process respects the original recipe and makes use of five bronze Carterhead stills. "24" refers to the immersion of botanicals in barley and corn spirit for 24 hours. Among the botanicals, Japanese Sencha tea and Chinese green tea make it unique compared to any other gin.
Beefeater is a brand of English gin produced by James Burrough Ltd and distributed by the French company Pernod Ricard. It is one of the last gin still produced in the city of London. The distillery's headquarters is located at 20 Montford Place, in the Kennington district, and covers about 9,000 square metres between offices, warehouses and production sites. The distillery houses five Carter-Head bronze stills, still used today in the production of gin.More about the Producer
