About the Beefeater Gin Distillery 

Beefeater Gin Distillery uses a hand-crafted recipe that has remained virtually unchanged since the 1800s. Building on the legacy of London’s dry gin, the distillery set a new standard for the drink across the world. Remaining true to its sense of heritage, the distillery is housed in an Edwardian building with a 1950s extension and features Victorian pot stills and a botanical room where fresh ingredients are stored.

  • Beefeater Gin accounts for three out of every four bottles of gin imported into the US, and in 1963, was the only gin selected to be on board the maiden voyage of the QEII to New York.
  •  Have you tried Burroughs Reserve? The spirit is brewed in James Burrough’s original Still No. 12. With a capacity of only 268 litres, the exclusive cask-rested spirit has the heart and soul of the original drink.

The best bank for your money!! If you are going to spend any time in London this is the way to do it. The fact that the public transportation is a part of this is a no brainer. All the places you can get in with the LP more than pay for it. One of the things that was really helpfully is the booklet I got with the LP which helped me with my planning. Thanks London Pass, hope to hold you soon!!!
