Boodles | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Carraway, Rosemary, Angelica (root and seeds), Cassia, Coriander seeds, Nutmeg, Sage and Juniper.

Brief Description
It was 1762 when Edward Boodle founded Boodle’s Gentlemen’s Club in St James Street, London. Almost a century later, in 1845, the recipe for Boodles Gin was born, a recipe still used today, the favourite Gin of Winston Churchill. Pure English wheat used for the production of the neutral alcohol and no citrus in the palette of botanicals are the stand out features of this classic.
Boodles was imagined as a blank canvas upon which each artist could express their own essence, with an alcohol base which permits anyone to put their taste, without any conditions by the creator’s vision. It’s because of this, and because they always imagine Gin served with lime or lemon, that the creators of Boodles opted to not put any citrus in the Gin itself. Boodles is a London Dry Gin with gentle herb and spice notes. Looking at the list of botanicals they use, there is an impressive number of warm flavoured spices, such as the carraway and the nutmeg. Also the herbs used, rosemary and sage, contribute to a greater warmth and roundness of this Gin.
On the nose, the caraway is noticeable first. It is gentler than the coriander seeds, and the aniseed brings warmth to the bouquet. Then the nutmeg and cassia appear, mixed together with the coherent touch of the herbs. In the mouth, confirmation that everything in the aroma is true, and where the smoothness of the alcohol is even more evident.

Beefeater Crown Jewel | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 50º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Liquorice, Almond, Angelica root and seed, coriander seed, lily root, orange, lemon and grapefruit peel, juniper.

Brief Description
Beefeater Crown Jewel was born in 1993. The “first” premium Gin was produced from the original Beefeater recipe, using grapefruit as its tenth botanical, and was aimed at the Duty Free market, an ultra-exclusive niche market at the time. Later on, in 2009, Crown Jewel was discontinued, opening the door for Beefeater 24, a decision which caused some “upset” in the many fans it had gained over the years. This new re-edition is faithful to its original recipe but brings some slight alterations in the bottle, namely with the change in name of the ravens that live at the Tower of London, to which Crown Jewel pays homage. The almost umbilical connection between Beefeater and the city which saw its creation and, in particular, the Tower of London is well known. The legend says that if the ravens leave the tower, the Tower and the monarchy will fall. Crown Jewel follows the rules of the Beefeater house. Omnipresent Juniper and the citrus touch are also signatures here, detectable in the first aromas released. In the mouth, Crown Jewel reveals a fairly robust Gin, with its 50 volumes of alcohol playing a part, full of juniper and a citrus touch where grapefruit occupies central position. Despite its high alcohol level, Crown Jewel is an extremely smooth Gin.

Beefeater Dry | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 40º 
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Liquorice, Almond, Angelica root and seed, Coriander seed, Lily root, Orange and Lemon peel, and Juniper.

Brief Description
Since its beginnings, Beefeater has been connected to the city where still today it is produced. It’s not odd, then that James Burrough baptized the brand with the name given to the guards of the Tower of London. From its first home in Cale Street, where it was born in 1876, Beefeater has also lived in two other homes. The first was in Hutton Road, Lambeth, where they had to move to up production to meet demand, the second, for the same reasons, in Kennington. The latter is the still the home of Beefeater.
Beefeater Lond Dry Gin is, today, one of the symbols of the city it calls home, but also one of the iconic London Dry Gins. From the first pungent notes of Juniper that leap from the bottle to the palate where it remains at the forefront, backed up by the markedly citrus notes, it is all that a London Dry should be. The 9 botanicals used in its production are the base of the recipe of all the Gins that Beefeater makes.

Beefeater 24 | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 45º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Liquorice, almond, root and angelica seed, Chinese green tea, Sencha Japanese tea, coriander seed, iris root, orange, lemon and grapefruit peel and juniper.

Brief Description
Brits like tea. Brits like Gin. Gin with tea? Of course. We do not know if this was the reason behind the creation of Beefeater 24 but the results speak for themselves. By adding grapefruit, Chinese green tea and Japanese sencha tea to the original Beefeater recipe, Desmond Payne created their London Dry. The Beefeater 24 is fresher, softer and more floral than the Beefeater Dry. But it is the scent of flowers that we feel when we open the bottle. The juniper notes are less noticed. On the palate, we are surprised by the softness, the elegant and citrus presence of grapefruit and an astringency in the end, signed by green tea.

Citadelle | France

Origin France
Alcoholic Volume 44º
Type London Dry Gin
Known Botanicals Liquorice, almond, root and angelica seed, cinnamon, cardamom, cassia, coriander seed, cumin, anise star, fennel, grains of paradise, orange and lemon peels, iris root, nutmeg, cubeba pepper, satureja, verbena and juniper.

Brief Description
The Citadelle Gin is produced in the Southwestern region of France, the land of Cognac. Alexandre Gabriel, Citadelle's master-distiller, used an old Geneviere recipe which he found in the city of Dunkirk, dating back to the eighteenth century. In addition, he added the tradition of Pierre Ferrand and started the production of Citadelle in small stills of copper heated with direct flame and without steam (naked flame) - like Cognac is made. This type of heating is noted when we taste it. It's rounder and smoother than most Gins as a result of the botanicals caramelization inside the still. Produced using the 19 botanicals, the Citadelle offers spicy notes of cinnamon, anise and nutmeg but also a jasmine perfume.
