The unique Beefeater recipe has changed little since the days of James Burrough. Beefeater’s crisp, clean, well balanced flavour is still derived from 100% natural ingredients, known as the botanicals, which are brought to the London Distillery from all over the world. The principal botanicals in Beefeater Gin are juniper, coriander and citrus peels, which provide the freshness and lift. The other botanicals in the recipe add complexity and depth.
Beefeater gin is a born and bred Londoner.
Created by James Burrough in the 1800s, Beefeater is the only international premium distilled gin that is produced in the centre of London. Even the name Beefeater has its roots in the city. Inspired by the yeoman warders - also known as Beefeaters - who have always stood watch at the Tower of London.
The original recipe devised by James Burrough has stood the test of time and Beefeater has become the most awarded gin for the last 10 years.
Unlike many of our competitors Beefeater is still bottled at 40% abv ensuring maximum flavour and enjoyment in every bottle.
