Beefeater is the most awarded gin in the world and is exported to over 100 countries.
In addition, it is No. 1 in Spain and No.3 in the United States, first market for Premium Gins.
Beefeater is the only international Premium Gin distilled in London, at the Kennington distilleries on the left bank of the Thames!
The origins of Beefeater date back to 1820, in a distillery at Malborough Square, London. James Burrough, pharmacist and expert in medicinal recipes, creates a Gin with a strong and perfumed flavour: the Beefeater London Dry Gin.
This drink had a huge success, but Burrough had difficulty in finding a name that, at the same time, would make reference to London (place of production), and give character to the Gin. He was inspired by the London Tower guards, since 1485, the Yeomen Warders also called Beefeaters (they ate a lot of beefs = Beef-eaters).
Today, the Yeomen Warders still are the symbol of Beefeater and are present on the label of each bottle.
Beefeater Burroughs Reserve is a new ultra-premium gin created, based on the belief that doing things in a different way may have an exceptional result.
Produced according to the original recipe of Beefeater, Burroughs Reserve is distilled manually using the original copper still of James Burrough, the "Alembic Number 12". With a capacity of just 268 litres, the Alembic Number 12 produces small lots of sophisticated distilled liquid, with its own and intriguing personality.
The lots are so limited that each bottle of Burroughs Reserve indicates the respective lot and the number of the bottle, on the label. After distillation, the gin goes through a very particular process, resting in rare casks of Jean de Lillet, personally selected by Desmond Payne. Jean de Lillet is a refined and highly appreciated aperitif, produced only in exceptional vintage years, making it the ideal resting place for an exceptional gin.
Beefeater Burroughs Reserve should be tasted neat, becoming a unique experience for those who wish to explore the world of quality premium gin.
