Beefeater Burrough's Reserve 1st Edition - 70cl - 43% ABV
Beefeater’s birth can be traced back to 1863, when James Burrough bought a Chelsea distillery for the then grand sum of £400 and started to produce his own distinctive style of gin. At first, the distillery continued with the production of liqueurs as started by its previous owners, further establishing its reputation and extending its customer base. The 1876 company stock lists show an increasing portfolio of gins with brand names such as Ye Old Chelsea and James Burrough London Dry, as well as Old Tom styles and a few others. By spending time experimenting, inventing and using new processes he discovered that blending a particular recipe of botanicals produced a bold, full-flavoured gin, which he named Beefeater Gin.
Beefeater Burrough's Reserve 1st Edition Gin -
Rested in Réserve Jean de Lillet oak barrels post distillation, Beefeater’s barrel-aged edition to an already formidable lineup is produced in small batches. Bottled at 43% ABV, each batch has its own unique characteristics. With a light amber colour, the gin has many of the distillery’s core DNA (citrus up front) too, although its not as prominent as in their other sister expressions. The oak is well integrated and not overbearing, working in harmony to create a creamy and rich gin with touches of cassia, juniper and orange that is easy to sip on its own.
