Going Red

These days, a bottle of Gin is a day to day object. Bigger or smaller, with clear or opaque glass, with bright colours or more conservative ones, with a cork or a screw cap, the choice of bottles is almost infinite, the producers making their mark through image created by the bottle that carries their Gin.
It wasn’t always thus. There were times, and the 19th century isn’t so long ago, when Gin was transported from the distillery to the retailer in barrels or large clay pots, then it was sold on in smaller packages, whether rustic clay jugs or an old champagne bottle or any other receptacle that could transport the Gin home.
Growing demand and available technology together with higher expectations from consumers lead the producers to adapt the bottle as a standard package for the sale of Gin. The labelling of the bottles, their design and materials used evolved through time in a process that has accelerated exponentially in recent years, much of this being down to the Gin boom.
Attentive to the market and new trends, Beefeater is launching the new Beefeater 24 bottle where the red from the base now extends to the whole bottle.
The red pays homages to one of the oldest jewels in the British Imperial State Crown, the Black Prince’s Ruby with its imposing 170 carates. Beefeater 24 and the Black Prince’s Ruby have a connection in the Tower of London, which is the inspiration for the first and the home of the second.
With this face lift, Beefeater seeks to be featured amongst its peers with a more vibrant, youthful image, while maintaining its high quality. In the words of Beefeater’s brand director, Eric Sampers, “Our new Beefeater 24 design will capture the consumer’s attention, with a striking red colour which makes it clearly stand out from its competitors. Beefeater 24 is a very special gin – created by the world’s most experienced gin master distiller, Desmond Payne – and we want people to know just from looking at the bottle that there is a high-quality liquid inside.”

Tips & Tricks
Beefeater 24 | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 45º
Type London Dry
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.

Beefeater Crown Jewel

Beefeater Crown Jewel was presented to a gathering of bartenders and friends, at Gin Lovers Principe Real.
Despite being a novelty in Portugal, Beefeater Crown Jewel is actually a re-edition of the Crown Jewel launched by Beefeater in 1993. In effect, it would have been the first premium Gin, on a par with Bombay Sapphire, at the time, both aimed at the duty free market.
This “new” Crown Jewel remains faithful to the original recipe, an evolution from Beefeater Dry Gin .
To the nine botanicals in Beefeater Dry Gin have been added grapefruit, and diluted has been reduced so that Crown Jewel, with 50%vol, has a significantly higher alcohol content than Beefeater Dry Gin.
Since it is an evolution of the original Beefeater recipe, Crown Jewel is simultaneously the base for the making of Beefeater 24, the Gin which came to substitute it in 2009. To the ten botanicals used in Crown Jewel, Desmond Payne added two new ones: Japanese Sencha tea and Chinese green tea.
The new bottle, similar to the other bottles of the English brand, is inspired by the Tower of London, seeking to invoke the old legend that the monarchy will fall if the Ravens ever leave the Tower. Thus the figure of a Raven landing on the royal orb that is the O in Crown has centre stage on the label. On the sides of the bottle are inscribed the names of eight Ravens that inhabit the Tower of London. Despite a few alterations, the bottle is similar to the one that was discontinued in 2009, but its purple glass makes it very different to the original clear bottle.
One last thing to mention is that Crown Jewel is a limited edition - the batch number for each bottle is found on the back label.
It is available in Gin Lovers online shop.

Pedrino - a tonic water with alcohol

This tonic has a touch of something to make it more than a tonic water. 5.5% vol. alcohol to be precise. It’s usual in Spain to drink Sherry with tonic; the mixture makes the Sherry fresher and more appetizing on hot summer afternoons. Lovers of both drinks, and searching for a new challenge, Sam Showering and Joseph Knopfler, long time friends, sought to combine the two things into one. Pedrino was born, an alcoholic tonic.
The alcohol is supplied by the Sherry, fortified wine made from Pedro Jimenez grapes. Its sweet heaviness finds a counterpoint in the bitterness of the quinine and the touch of citrus from grapefruit and blood orange.
Pedrino was conceived to be drunk along, but also works just as well as a mixer. In more evolved cocktails or as a substitute for normal tonic in a Gin & Tonic, it opens up new perspectives and offers surprising results.
If you can get your hands on a bottle (unfortunately, it’s not available in Portugal) give it a try in a Gin & Tonic. Beefeater 24 and Pedrino makes for an interesting aromatic flavour but you can add some grapefruit zest if you want to make it shine.
