Beefeater Gin

Beefeater Gin was named after the guards that protect the crown jewels at the Tower of London. It first went into production in 1876 and was an instant hit, becoming the flagship brand for the distillery. It is the only internationally recognised London Dry Gin still being distilled in the city.

Beefeater 24 Gin

Beefeater 24 Gin is the super premium expression of the Beefeater family. Adding a handful of new botanicals to the spirit, including grapefruit peel and, most notably, Japanese and Chinese green tea has given it a distinctive flavour. It gets its name from its unique distillation process, in which all botanicals are steeped together in the base spirit for 24 hours before going into traditional pot stills.

Plymouth Gin.

Plymouth Gin. Now a geographically protected spirit thanks to the water used to distil it, Plymouth gin has a unique taste profile. It is not juniper heavy like many gins. Its seven botanicals are finely balanced, so that no single one dominates the flavour. It keeps a wonderful junipery, lemony bite with deeper earthy notes, whilst also having a slight sweetness with extraordinary concentration and complexity.

Beefeater Gin is 94 proof , Beefeater remains quite smooth and very drinkable.  It's dry, piney, and it has hints of herbal spice- orange coriander and angelica.   It's a quality gin that goes well with grapefruit juice.  With tonic and lime it is quite crisp and refreshing..  As for making a martini with it, Try shaking up two shots of Beefeater and 1 ounce of Dry Vermouth. 

Beefeater Gin is a brand of gin bottled, and distributed in the United Kingdom, It is a 47% alcohol by Volum (94 proof) in the US and New Zealand, and a 40% alcohol product (80 proof) elsewhere in the world 40% alcohol is 80 proof. In the US. Beefeater gin is distilled from "100% grain spirit". The manufacturer has been in business since 1820 and is located in Kennington, London. The soldier on the label is a Yeoman Warder (Beefeater) dressed in ceremonial garb.

According to the Beefeater website, Beefeater Gin contains nine different botanicals: juniper, angelica root, angelica seeds, coriander seeds, liquorice, almonds, orris root, seville oranges, and lemon peel.
