Review and Tasting

Sampled on 15/07/2012


Crystal clear.


Laveder bouquet of original Beefeater is replaced by floral aromas, particuarly hibiscus with blackcurrant berry notes also evident.


Less citrussy than is usual for Beefeater with superbly integrated flavours which present as a unified force making it hard to distinguish the individual contributions of the elderflower, hibiscus and blackcurrant that set this gin apart from original Beefeater.


Blackberry emerges in a reassuringly predominant piney juniper finish. A master class in gin formulation by Desmond Payne.
