Beefeater has long been synonymous with gin and it only seems right for them to serve up something that would endear all gin fans. if you are huge fan of gin, you probably already heard about the Beefeater Burrough’s Reserve, but if you are the undecided, or basically have the love for all-thing alcohol, then you should know about this adult beverage from gin specialist Beefeater. created as a small batch offering by Master Distiller Desmond Payne, the Burrough’s Reserve is made using the original Beefeater recipe and distilled by hand in one of James Burrough’s original copper pot stills, affectionately known as the “Still Number 12”, after which it is set to rest in rare oak barrels handpicked by Desmond Payne.
the casks in question are formerly used to contain Lillet, a brand of French aperitif wine with 85 percent Bordeaux wines and 15 percent macerated liqueurs, and the result? a gin imbued with “subtle characteristics of the oak and residual flavors from the casks and with a look of liquid gold” and so, no. the apparent “color disparity” you see in the lone image above is not the result of photography error or whatsoever. the color itself is departure from the tradition of gin and the drink is said to contain a subtle mix of citrus flavors (thanks to Lillet casks), “leading to juniper before wrapping up with gentle spice.” the Beefeater Burrough’s Reserve is now available in the U.S. market via select bars and retailers, presented in a distinctive embossed glass bottle (that caught our eyes in the first place), for $70 per 750ml bottle.
