Beefeater redefines the enjoyment of gin with the launch of Burrough’s Reserve. Distilled in a small historic copper still from the 19th century, the spirit is then uniquely rested in Jean de Lillet oak barrels. A very fine aperitif, Jean de Lillet is only created in exceptional vintage years, making its barrels the optimum resting place for an ultra-Premium gin.
Produced following the original Beefeater recipe, refined by the founder of Beefeater James Burrough in the 1860s, Burrough’s Reserve is distilled by hand using James Burrough’s original copper “Still Number 12”. With a capacity of only 268L, Still Number 12 produces such small batches that each bottle of Burrough’s Reserve displays its batch and bottle number on the label.

Faint evidence of barrel aging evident to the eye. The aromatics are complex and exotic with brown baking spices in the lead supported by citrus, dried orange peel, and fresh herbs. The palate is in full agreement delivering the botanicals on a silky, slightly sweet bed of clean spirit.
