Beefeater 24 & Tea
Desmond Payne is one of the most well recognised distillers in the world today. Even for those new to the Gin world, his is an obligatory name, consecrated in more than 50 years of distilling. For a long time connected to the Pernod Ricard universe, Desmond now has his name linked to Beefeater and Plymouth, but despite more than half a century of distilling, it was only in 2008 that he created his first Gin, Beefeater 24. Meanwhile, the history of the iconic London Gin began a good few years earlier.
Desmond Payne – 50 years distilling the best

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.
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.

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.
