Beefeater has won me over in the last few weeks, as I've used it to prepare a variety of cocktails, from Gin and Tonics to Gin and Grapefruit/Soda. Both! I don't drink Gin straight, but I always sneak a little before I make the cocktail, and hands down it's the smoothest that I've tried.

On this count, Beefeater succeeds swimmingly. Yes, Beefeater is 94 proof and does have some alcohol ester. Nevertheless, Beefeater remains quite smooth and very drinkable. It's dry, piney, and it has hints of herbal spice- orange coriander and angelica I'm told. It's a quality gin that goes well with grapefruit juice. With tonic and lime it is quite crisp and refreshing- good for balmy days. As for making a martini with it, I suggest shaking up two shots of Beefeater and 1 ounce of Vya Dry Vermouth. Vya's wild herbal taste well complements Beefeater's forthrightness and together they make a splendid martini.

Beefeater 24 Gin is a variation of Beefeater s London Dry Gin, adding a handful of new components to the spirit, including grapefruit peel and, most notably, Japanese and Chinese green tea.

Beefeater 24 was created by their master distiller Desmond Payne, a man with forty years experience with gin and previous master distiller for Plymouth before he moved to Beefeater in 1995. Taking inspiration from the father of Beefeater founder James Burrough, who was a prominent tea merchant in the nineteenth-century, the gin features Chinese green and Japanese Sencha teas plus grapefruit peel alongside more traditional Beefeater botanicals like orange peel, juniper, angelica and coriander. The gin comes in a handsomely designed bottle inspired by the arts and crafts movement of the late nineteenth century, though it frustratingly features the plastic lid enclosure that seems to be more and more popular these days. It takes its name from the 24-hour steeping process the botanicals go through prior to distillation. Curiously I’ve read interviews where this same 24-hour process is described for the regular Beefeater product, so it appears this process is unique to Beefeater in general rather than Beefeater 24 specifically.

What initially seems like an unusual name for a superpremium gin makes immediate sense with the first sip. Beefeater Wet is light and brimming with flavor, but not the flavor we've grown accustomed to all these years. No, this is an altogether new set of sensations. The magic of Beefeater Wet is a delicate essence of fruit that resonates through its bouquet and palate. The fruit essence adds a lushness to the gin that has been heretofore unimagined. To further the effect, Beefeater Wet is bottled at an accessible 70 proof. At a lower proof the flavor components have an opportunity to linger on the palate and heighten the taste. Beefeater Wet is guaranteed to tickle the fancy of gin enthusiasts and martini aficionados alike. <center> <table border="1" cellspacing="1" width="100%"> <tr> <td width="50%" valign="top">Wet Blue 1 &#190; oz.

Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh, slightly citrusy and delicious - just what you want in a sauvignon blanc.

<p>Bottled and distributed in the UK, Beefeater London Dry Gin Premier, is the most exported variety of gin in the world. It possesses a bouquet of aromatics of seville orange, witchhazel, angelica, coriander, cassia, licorice, almond and orris root. The liquor is heavy with a bite of alcohol at 94 proof and the taste that is a nice mixture of licorice, juniper, citrus and the other spices with hints of marzipan and almonds in the background. Finish is remarkably smooth for a high proof gin and has spinach notes and resin.</p>
