Beefeater 24 Gin (70cl, 45%). A sophisticated blend of fine botanicals and exotic teas. Made in the heart of London from 12 hand-selected botanicals including Japanese Sencha and Chinese Green teas. As a result Beefeater 24 is a sophisticated and modern gin designed for contemporary cocktails.
Master Distiller Desmond Payne first realised that tea had potential as a botanical. In Japan quinine was strictly banned from the production of tonic. Because of this, it made a far sweeter mixer for the traditional G&T. To quench his thirst, Desmond chose to mix Beefeater gin with chilled green tea. The resulting gin and tea combination was remarkable. Consequently this inspired Desmond to spend the next 18 months trialling and experimenting with different teas and botanical blends.
Perfect Serve: Fever Tree Indian Tonic, ice and a slice of grapefruit
