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 Distillery Tour - 1.5 hour

This self-discovery tour takes you on a stroll through the history of gin in London where you’ll learn how some savvy American barmen made gin the world’s favourite cocktail spirit. You’ll also learn how James Burrough, the founder of the brand, created the award-winning Beefeater Gin, turning it into London’s signature drink. During the second part of your visit, the distillery’s expert guide will take you to the heart of the distillery to explain the hand-crafted production process, which will culminate in a complimentary Beefeater Gin and Tonic at the end of the tour.

Beefeater Gin facts

  • 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.

Best deal in London - I have used the London Pass my last two trips and it has been wonderful. Especially if you add the Tube option, a great way to see sights you may not have if purchased separately. Would recommend it to anyone.
