This London gin was first created in 2014, inspired by the Beefeater Master Distiller's visits to the Chelsea Physic Garden. He created a herbaceous twist on Beefeater by adding lemon verbena and thyme to the nine botanicals that feature on Beefeater’s classic London Dry recipe.
The Chelsea Physic Garden, located a stone’s throw from the distillery and another of London’s hidden gems, is thought to have inspired Beefeater’s founder, James Burrough, in the 19th Century. He was a pharmacist by training and had just changed career, buying and moving next door to Beefeater’s first distillery in Chelsea.
On learning this, Beefeater's current Master Distiller, Desmond Payne, set about creating Beefeater London Garden, a special edition gin that is the culmination of countless taste experiments and trips to the garden. The result is a gin that carries through Beefeater London Dry’s citric precision, while working through more leafy and herbal notes.
