Know-how 

James Burrough's original recipe contained nine “botanicals” or natural ingredients, including Seville orange and lemon peel, whole juniper berries, angelica seeds, coriander and almonds, which are steeped for 24 hours before being distilled. This procedure makes it possible to create a perfectly balanced, full-flavoured gin.
This steeping and distillation method remains virtually unchanged today and follows the secret recipe invented by James Burrough. Beefeater is the only international premium gin still distilled in the heart of the British capital at the Kennington distillery.

The Chelsea distillery opens under the control of the Taylor family. This would go on to become the first home of Beefeater Gin.

James Burrough, Beefeater’s first Master Distiller, starts producing many different brands of gin, including Beefeater, named after the Beefeaters at the Tower of London.

On the search for more space to keep up with demand, Beefeater moves to its present home in Kennington, a site once occupied by the Haywards Military Pickle Factory.
