The natural botanicals in all Beefeater gins are hand-sourced by our Master Distiller Desmond Payne – who also happens to be the most experienced Gin Master Distiller in the world.
Every year Desmond searches for the best and most consistent quality botanicals to ensure every bottle that leaves our distillery meets the very highest standards of quality.
Under the watchful eye of Desmond the botanicals are steeped in the finest British grain spirit for a full 24 hours. Then, uniquely, during the seven-hour distillation that follows, Desmond takes an Artisan Cut by hand of the finest spirit straight from the very heart of the run. In order to create the best and most consistent flavour profile approximately 30% of the product is discarded from the beginning and end of the run (the usual cut for gin is 5%). This dedication to perfection results in a softer, contemporary style of gin and ensures that you are only drinking the very best we have to offer. Our strong focus on quality and consistency means that every drop of Beefeater 24 you consume will be the very best available in the world – every time.
The 12 natural botanicals in Beefeater 24 are Japanese Sencha tea, Chinese Green Tea, Seville Orange peel, Grapefruit peel, Lemon peel, Juniper, Coriander seed, Liquorice, Angelica root, Angelica seed, Almond and Orris root. As tea compounds fuse well and act as a great catalyst for a wide variety of other flavours, Beefeater 24 is very mixable gin that is perfect for modern cocktail creations.
Beefeater 24 is bottled at high strength (45% ABV), making it long on taste and fragrantly upbeat.
