Desmond Payne – 50 years distilling the best

Desmond Payne may still be unknown by some, but his is one of the most important names in the world of Gin, and in particular, the Pernod Ricard universe, where he is currently responsible for Beefeater and Plymouth Gins.
Desmond has been connected to distillation for 50 years. He began in the wine business but his contact with spirits, when he worked for Seager, Evans & Co, woke his passion for them. From passion to practice was simple and at 21 years old he left London to work in the Plymouth Distillery.
On an adventurous and successful route, Desmond has learned much and applies all of his knowledge acquired over the last 50 years. The proof of this are the 8 Gins he has to his name, produced more or less one per year.
Beefeater 24 deserves to be highlighted, Desmond himself makes it, making one of the most iconic Gins of our times. A classic but irreverent Gin. A gin that respects the old traditions of London Dry Gins, but which brings new approaches and new aroma profiles.
Also in his portfolio, Beefeater Burrough’s, in an homage to the founder of the British company, which is now going into its second edition, and Beefeater Crown Jewel, one of the more exclusive lines, alongside other variations of Beefeater London Dry. 
We congratulate Desmond and look forward to his next creations.

Real Gin – Gold Medal in the Luxury Masters 2017

The Luxury Masters is an annual competition promoted by The Spirit Business, limiting contenders to drinks considered SuperPremium and UltraPremium. In an area where traditionally we saw Cognacs and Whiskies, we are beginning to see the range widening. Today, there are various producers of different spirits, such as Gin, Vodka and Rum who are dedicated exclusively to the luxury market. No wonder, then, the variety of products distinguished by this year’s The Luxury Masters.
And this is one more contest in which Portugal left its mark, proving again that this is a good time for Portuguese Gin. This time, it was Real Gin who won the Gold medal in the UltraPremium category. 
Competing in The Luxury Masters were small producers of Gin which have recently arrived on the market, as well as the bigger, and longer established and beloved brands, so we saw Real Gin on the podium with Beefeater 24, which also won Gold, the highest distinction in the competition.

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.”

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.

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.

Gin and Tonic Ice cream Santini | Gin Lovers

It is officially considered one of the most anticipated synergies of recent times. The mastery of ice cream maker Santini joined the Gin Lovers boldness and irreverence and created a Gin and tonic ice cream. To be honest not one, but 16 ice cream, all made with Premium Gins sold by Gin Lovers. The new Santini ice cream reproduces not only a taste but also the authenticity of a drink - the Gin and Tonic. Calories aside, this is an ice cream that requires real care when tasted. Be careful or it will let you...inebriated. This synergy started a year ago when Gin Lovers invited Santini to develop a Gin and Tonic ice cream for an article that was coming on the Gin Lovers Magazine. Santini accepted immediately and it was a huge success in stores. This led to an alliance between the most prestigious Portuguese ice cream maker and the biggest Gin community to create a series of gin and tonic ice creams. The 16 premium gin brands were chosen. Then Schweppes and its tonic waters embraced the project with equal enthusiasm and availability. Each gin brand represents a different ice cream flavor because of the different botanical combinations. As there is no addition of ice - which provides an extra quantity of water to drink - the ice cream reveals the most authentic flavor as when you sip a Gin and tonic. Santini gives you the chance to experience ice creams from G'Vine, Gin Mare, Seagram's, Blackwood's 60, Tanqueray 10, Tanqueray Rangpur, Bulldog, Opihr, London N.3, Brockman's Monkey 47, Martin Miller's, Hendrick's, Wild Snow Dog, Sylvius and Beefeater 24. “We take advantage from the the fact that we are one of the oldest players on the market. Our know-how comes from the experience and work of three generations. We do not rest with only traditional flavor like strawberry or chocolate”, says Eduardo Santini - director of the prestigious ice cream maker. He believes that “the creation of new flavors and products in the Santini stores is natural”. Each gin and tonic flavor and brand will be revealed each week beginning the 7th of May. Do not forget. If you eat this ice cream do not drive.
