Beefeater is the world's No.1 Premium gin. The only international Premium gin to still be distilled in London, it brings its quintessentially British character to the world of Spirits.
Beefeater's roots can be traced back to the 1820s, when John Taylor and his wife opened a small distillery in London's Chelsea district. In 1863, it was taken over by James Burrough, who took a closer interest in the distillation process. James embraced his passion for experimenting and developing new flavours, starting to produce his own style of gin. He discovered that distilling a specific recipe based on natural ingredients gave a very fragrant gin with a bold taste.
In 2007 Desmond Payne, Master Distiller with 40 years of experience, created his own award-winning masterpiece, Beefeater 24, with the addition of grapefruit and two types of tea to the original recipe.
