Wine Enthusiast 92 Points Setting the benchmark for London dry-style gins, look for a fresh, clean scent and flavors of lemon peel and juniper, accented by white pepper, ginger, cayenne and coriander before fading to zingy lemon and a mildly sweet exit. At 47% abv it reads a little hot, but it's ideal for drinks with a bit of dilution, like a classic Gin & Tonic.
Beefeater is a particularly fresh, clean and crisp gin with a subtle citrus and fruit edge, balanced by the spice of coriander and the earthliness of Angelica. The complexity of the Beefeater recipe, together with its minimum 40 per cent ABV bottling strength, produces a gin which is multi-dimensional in character with background notes of spice, root and juniper. These elements combine to form a complex gin while remaining balanced and well-rounded.
A textbook London Dry Gin bouquet; floral, earthy, spicy and crisp with dry notes of orange peel and black pepper all underpinned by the presence of juniper berry. The palate entry is sharp, crisp, dry and botanically balanced; at midpalate a burst of citrus juiciness counters the earthiness of the juniper and angelica root. Finishes with a wonderful rush of juniper.
