||Beefeater London Dry Gin is the world's leading brand of premium imported gin, made today with the same secret recipe that dates back to 1820. The only premium London Dry Gin still made in London, Beefeater's difference is defined by its complex recipe using high-quality, exotic botanicals from throughout the world, a skilful distilling process and the quality and consistency of production that determines Beefeater's unique, exceptional taste. Beefeater uses only the finest botanicals to produce a distinctively dry and aromatic gin. With its refreshingly crisp quality, and subtle citrus and fruit edge, this premium gin is worthy of its title as the world's number one premium imported gin. The making of Beefeater London Dry Gin begins with the production of the alcohol, made from only the choicest maize, harvested at the height of its maturity, and carefully blended with selected strains of barley to produce a pure grain spirit, which gives Beefeater its uniquely clean taste. Botanicals are then added -- juniper berries from Italy; coriander seeds from Romania, Russia and Bulgaria; orange and lemon peels from Spain; Angelica root and seed from Flanders; as well as other secret ingredients known only to the Burrough family. Beefeater steeps its gin longer than any other gin-maker, infusing the spirit and botanicals together to produce a fully rounded flavour. During the distillation process each of the botanical flavours is released at a different stage. A distilled gin must, according to the law, be distilled in a gin still in the presence of botanicals or other natural ingredients, of which the dominant ingredient must be juniper berries. Beefeater has won the Gold Medal from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2003 and was named #1 Gin by The New York Times. Technical notes 47% abv.
