This specialty gin is aged for a day in Japanese Sencha and Chinese Green teas (along with 12 more traditional botanicals) for a unique scent and texture; because it departs from the traditional London Dry we have opted to list it as an "other."
Our own tasting at the Tasting Panel 2010 Chicago Tour we said it's a classic, dry taste but with some overtones of fruit (the green tea?) that comes together rather nicely. Drinking this genuine gin with a winning personality is like meeting an old friend of the opposite sex with an attractive new haircut."
Beefeater 24 was named Best Gin at the 2010 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
The Beefeater Distillery traces its roots back to 1820 in London where it was purchased (formerly Chelsea Distillery) by pharmacist James Burrough. He produced several different brands of gin, the most famous of which was Beefeater named for the Beefeater's of the Tower of London. The brand was purchased by Pernod Ricard in 2005, which asserts a large re-invesment program in the brand.
