Beefeater Gin is seeped in London history.
James Burrough was a Devon born pharmacist, who headed to the United states to work. After spending years abroad, he returns to Lopndon in 1863 and purchases the Chelsea distillery for £400. He produces liqueurs, fruit gins and punches. He also counts Fortnum & Mason amongst his customers. With sales going well, Burrough starts producing many different brands of gin, including Beefeater, named after the Beefeaters at the Tower of London. It was instantly a success and became the distillery’s flagship brand.
With sales going well, Beefeater continues to grow, leading to the purchases of bigger and better distilleries as the years went by.
Today, Beefeater is the worlds most awarded gin.
