Its name comes from the beefeaters, who are ceremonial guardians of the Tower of London. In addition, beefeaters means “meat eaters” in English.

Beefeater London dry was born and raised in the heart of London, where it has been around for more than 150 years. It is manufactured and created by London-based James Burrough Ltd and was released in 1876.

Let’s look at the analysis and reviews of this English gin.

Features of Beefeater Gin

Beefeater’s own botanicals are those of a classic London Dry. Notes of citrus are added from a base of enebro and spices. In this case bitter oranges of Seville and lemons.

Its aromas offer us a well-balanced blend of fresh wine, citrus and spices.Here are its 9 ingredients:

  • Juniper berries, root and angelica seeds, coriander seeds, liquorice, almond, lily root powder, Seville oranges and lemon.

The bottle

Visually the drink is contained in a sober tower-shaped glass bottle. It has its smooth and flat sides, carrying a brand with the different botanicals. On the label is an image of the old beefeaters.

Tasting notes

On the nose it evokes citrus notes of orange and enebro along with spicy nuances. In addition the earthy notes of angelica root, lily root and liquorice on a sweet alcohol basis.

Citrus and spaced notes are intensified on the palate without losing the memory of juniper berry.

The finish is medium and focuses on sweet citrus and light spices.

How to drink Beefeater

It is a distillate for those who do not allow themselves to be influenced by fashions and seek their Lifelong Gin Tonic; the simple, the one you don’t need quirky embellishments to enjoy yourself with a quality gin.

However, although in principle it is a classic drink it is a multipurpose gin due to its citrus notes that we can use for both gintonics “to be at home” and for more elaborate cocktails.

Gin Tonic by Beefeater


ALCOHOL Tonic: Beefeater Gin 24

ADEREZO: Red grapefruit and par

FORMATO: Ball cup


We will use as a container a ball cup of fine glass and wide mouth that will help in the presentation of gin tonic.

Then pour 3 or 4 ice cubes into the glass to get started. Cool the glass by moving the ice in circles with the help of the braided spoon and then remove the excess water. We remember that abundant ice is one of the secrets to making a good combination of gin.

In this Gin Tonic we will use two fundamental ingredients, on the one hand the red grapefruit that will bring a bitter touch to the final result and on the other the parsley that has the virtue of accentuating the aroma of other herbs present in the gin.

Next, we cut a slice of grapefruit and two sheets of parsley to enhance its flavors. It’s time to add beefeater’s combined 2 or 3 cl which is a gentle measure when it comes to an aperitif cocktail.

Finally, pour slowly through a braided rod resting in the center of the cup, the tonic which of course must be very cold. Finally remove gently and let it rest for half a minute. We’ve got it ready!
