Beefeater London Dry Gin
Beefeater London Dry was born and bred in the heart of London where it still remains after over 150 years. The Spirit of London, Beefeater has absorbed the city’s creativity and energy.
Named for the iconic guards of the Tower of London, Beefeater Gin was established in 1876 by a pharmacist, Charles Burroughs, who had a passion for distilling and creating high quality, London Dry gins. Today, Beefeater is owned by Pernod Ricard but the recipes and passion remain unchanged. With Beefeater London Dry as their flagship gin, Beefeater have a whole range of gins. Interestingly, Beefeater Gin still throw an annual lunch for the Beefeater’s themselves.
Beefeater London Dry is one of the classics, a simple, clean gin. Juniper forward with strong lemon orange citrus, there is a touch of heat from the coriander and something gently floral. Smooth with a peppery orange finish.
It's OK, but wouldn't buy it for myself, it's nothing special! I guess people from outside the UK regard it as good, but to me it's normalish.
