Beefeater 24 Gin - 70cl - 45% ABV
Beefeater is a brand that needs little introduction, having been huge, global superstars of the Gin scene for well over a century. In fact, in 2020, the Beefeater recipe will celebrate its 200th birthday, so we’d say they’re probably onto a good thing…
As the reputation of Craft Gin has soared over the past seven or so years and the category has twisted, evolved and changed beyond recognition, Beefeater has held steady. When the Gin trend eventually tapers down, Beefeater will still hold steady. You’d be hard pushed to find a decent bar across the globe that doesn’t serve it. There’s a reason for that: it’s seriously tasty stuff.
Designed by Beefeater’s 50-year-strong distiller Desmond Payne, Beefeater 24 is a Far East inspired gin with an incredibly array of botanicals. With Japanese sencha and Chinese green tea in the line-up, it’s a unique affair, though juniper stands strong and grapefruit acts as a good east meets west bridge, with a faint hint of the exotic and that familiar citrus burst. Delicious!
To serve: Try with a grapefruit tonic.
