About this deal

After the almost instant success of the gin, it was soon made the James Burrough Company's flagship product. The original Beefeater recipe book dated 1895, specifies that nine botanicals are essential (juniper, angelica root, angelica seeds, coriander seeds, liquorice, almonds, orris root, seville oranges and lemon peel) to create the full-bodied and robust flavour so distinct in this gin.

Although this alcohol is not aged like whiskey or wines, some brands age their gins in oak casks. It gives the spirit a difference in color, similar to that of young whiskey. Aging also affects the final price of the brands.As the James Burrough Company went into rapid expansion, there was a requirement to increase distilling capacity and in 1908 a new larger Beefeater distillery was built in Lambeth. [5] Kennington Distillery [ edit ] Since its launch, Beefeater Gin has gone on to become one of the world’s best selling and most iconic spirits. The proud Yeoman of the Guard on the bottle was the nineteenth century equivalent of a giant eagle on an American gin bottle; it aroused quite a sense of patriotism. The botanicals are macerated for a full day, just as it was in Burrough’s original recipe, and then distilled. The resultant flavor and gin is among a small handful which essentially defined the “London Dry” flavor profile. Unsweetened, juniper led, and crystal clear. When you think London Dry, this may well be the gin that comes to mind.

Inspired by the Mediterranean flavors and overall joie de vivre of the South of France, Salcombe’s ‘Rosé Sainte Marie’ pink gin is distilled and crafted with a variety of thoughtful botanicals, including Macedonian juniper, angelica, and strawberries. The gin’s natural pink hue is obtained by macerating clear gin with unsweetened red fruits. No sugars, colorings, or artificial flavors are added. Expect flavors of strawberry, orange blossom, rose water, and pink peppercorn to jump from the gin’s smooth palate. Salcombe’s Rosé Sainte Marie Gin is also the only pink gin to win a double gold medal at San Francisco’s World Spirits Competition in 2020. The gin gets its name from the famous lighthouse at the Old Port entrance in Marseille, where workers could regularly be seen loading citrus, fruits, and other herbs onto boats headed to the ports of England. The gin was owned by the James Burrough Company until 1987, when under the direction of Norman Burrough, the company was bought by Whitbread. [4] Lambeth [ edit ]The Beefeater London Dry Gin recipe was created by founder James Burrough in 1862. The Beefeater brand still uses the same recipe 200 years ago with all nine botanicals and herbs. The list includes juniper berries, angelica root, angelica seeds, coriander seeds, liquorice, almonds, orris root, Seville oranges, and lemon peel. How It’s Made At times, it can be challenging to find unique aspects in different gins. Obviously, they are all made from juniper berries, herbs, and some form of citrus. Beefeater, however, does add some unique steps to their process. They steep lemons, oranges, and the other ingredients for an entire 24 hour day. It is then distilled after the steeping process is complete. Home, Sweet Home Beefeater Gin was reformulated in 2020 for the United States market. Formerly bottled at 47% ABV, it was re-launched at 44% ABV. This review is for the pre-2020, 47% ABV strength. Beefeater Story

This gin is produced from "100% grain spirit". The manufacturer has been in business since 1863 [2] and is currently located in Kennington, London. Beefeater Gin is a brand of gin owned by Pernod Ricard and bottled and distributed in the United Kingdom. Beefeater remained in the control of its founding Burrough family until 1987. It is a 47% or 44% alcohol product (94 proof) in the US, and a 40% alcohol product (80 proof) elsewhere in the world (including the UK). The Beefeater distillery is one of 24 in London. [1] The Beefeater London Dry Gin stays true to its name; it’s one of only nine gins left with producers still in London, along with Sipsmith London and the City of London. The method of steeping and distilling devised by James Burrough in the 1860s along with the secret recipe he created remains virtually unchanged.
