Beefeater Burrough's Reserve Oak Rested Gin (700ml)
London, UNITED KINGDOM
$135. 00 Bottle
Launched in 2013, this marks an unusual departure for such a large Gin producer, although given the present trend towards diversification, it doesn't really come as a surprise. What is truly novel here is the use of x-wine barrels. This expression is rested in French oak barrels that previously held "Lillet Aperitif", and by all reports, it definitely comes through in the flavour. Current master distiller Desmond Payne, has recreated the gin from Burrough’s original recipe. “After 45 years in the drinks industry, I wanted to create something truly unique that celebrated the distilling heritage of Beefeater,” said Payne. “I had been interested in resting gin for a while and knew that if the cask was right, we could make a really exciting new gin that changed people’s perceptions of the spirit. I felt that the use of Jean de Lillet casks and Still Number 12 would introduce a new character to the gin, elevating it to a place that had not been explored before. I expect Burrough’s Reserve to appeal to free thinking individuals who enjoy challenging convention and exploring new sensory experiences with gin.” No tasting notes available.
