Beefeater gin is a born and bred Londoner. Created by James Burrough in the 1800s, Beefeater is the only international premium distilled gin that is produced in the centre of London. Even the name Beefeater has its roots in the city. Inspired by the yeoman warders - also known as Beefeaters - who have always stood watch at the Tower of London. The original recipe devised by James Burrough has stood the test of time and Beefeater has become the most awarded gin for the last 10 years. Unlike many of our competitors Beefeater is still bottled at 40% abv ensuring maximum flavour and enjoyment in every bottle.
