ne distillery, eight stills, nine botanicals and three expert distillers produce one bold taste. With every drop made right here in London, we're proud to produce a real London Dry Gin. Created by James Burrough in the 1800's, Beefeater is the only international premium distilled gin that is produced in the centre of London. Even the name Beefeater has its roots in the city. Inspired by the yeoman warders - also known as Beefeaters - who have always stood watch at the Tower of London.
