Gin and Tonic Challenge – Beefeater 24

Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 19, 2014

Beefeater 24Beefeater 24 and T SAM_1250  is advertised as being handcrafted with 12 botanicals which include grapefruit, bitter almond, orris root, Seville orange peel, rare Japanese Sencha tea and Chinese green tea. This makes Beefeater 24 gin more complex in construction than the previously reviewed Beefeater London Dry Gin which listed 9 ingredients in its construction. There are other differences as well, the major one being that in my market, Beefeater 24 is bottled at a significantly higher proof (45 % versus 40 % alcohol by volume) which to me is very welcome indeed. As well, all of the ingredients for the newer gin are apparently steeped in grain alcohol for 24 hours prior to a 7 hour distillation where the master distiller makes an artisan cut by hand from the heart of the distillation run.

Beefeater 24 Gin is crisp, fresh and delightful in the glass. The flavours are balanced with the juniper and citrus zest forming a wonderful duo upon the palate. In my review, I admit that once I made my first Gin and Tonic with this spirit, I spent the next couple of days making more. When I re-tested the spirit for my Gin and Tonic Challenge this week, I fell in love with the Beefeater 24 all over again. Of course this means that the Beefeater 24 Gin scored very well.

My G&T score for this fabulous gin is 89.5/100 points.
