Beefeater London Dry Gin 24 - Spirits Worth Raising

Beefeater London Dry Gin 24

In the 1820s, a small gin distillery was established in Chelsea, London, which was later purchased by James Burrough, a pharmacist and aspiring distiller. In 1876, Burrough began to produce many different brands of gin, including the now-famous Beefeater which takes its name from the Yeomen Warders (also known as "Beefeaters") who have guarded the Tower of London since 1485. By 1963, Beefeater would account for three out of every four bottles of gin imported into the US.The distillery appointed Desmond Payne as Master Distiller in 1995 with decades of experience, Payne has been named the worlds most experienced gin distiller and personally tests over 200 juniper samples each year to ensure Beefeaters uniqueness and quality. Once the botanicals which include Seville orange and lemon peel, whole juniper berries, angelica seeds, coriander and almonds are selected, theyre put through a 24-hour steeping process to extract the maximum amount of flavor before finally being sent for distillation. During distillation the ingredients are heated, turning the liquid to vapor, which carries the oils from the botanicals. The vapors are then condensed back to liquid form. While the liquid is passing through the Spirit Safe, the stillmen use their noses to select the perfect cut from the run to become Beefeater gin.Beefeater 24 is Beefeaters premium offering. Launched October of 2008, the gin is distilled in Kennington London, from 12 hand-selected botanicals comprised of a unique blend of rare teas. After 18 months of experimentation, trial and error, the final product is a fresh blend of aromas and incredible smoothness. This premium gin gets its name from its 24-hour steeping process inspired by James Borroughs family history books. Borroughs father was royally appointed a tea merchant by Queen Victoria.The signature recipe is comprised of core botanicals that give Beefeater its signature taste juniper, coriander, Angelica, grapefruit and Seville orange peel, along with sencha and Chinese green tea yield a new range of aroma and taste.Pick up your bottle today!
