Beefeater

A true British icon

Beefeater, the origins of which date back to 1820, is the only major London dry gin still produced in the heart of the city.

Beefeater’s creator, James Burrough, was a trained pharmacist whose passion for experimenting and developing flavours led him to discover a recipe of nine natural botanicals that resulted in a distinctively bold and full-flavoured gin. Combined with his unique method of steeping the blend in the grain alcohol for 24 hours prior to distillation, Beefeater London Dry Gin was born.
 
Today’s Beefeater Master Distiller, Desmond Payne, maintains guardianship of the Beefeater London Dry Gin recipe developed by James Burrough in the 1860s. Desmond, with more than 40 years’ experience in the industry, is the world’s most experienced gin distiller and created the award-winning super-premium gin Beefeater 24.
 
Beefeater takes its name from the Yeoman Warders of the Tower of London, also known as ‘Beefeaters’, who have guarded this historic landmark for more than 500 years.
