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.
