Visit to Beefeater Gin
Tuesday, April 17th, 2018 at 11.30 am
Noticing that one of the latest fads is designer gin, you may have thought about all the companies such as Gordonís and Nicholsons which originated in London and are no longer here. But there is still one gin company, Beefeater. Founded in 1862 by James Burrough, a pharmacist, who bought the Chelsea distillery of Rectifer & Compounder for the sum of £400, in 1863 he started to produce his own distinctive style of gin. With rapid expansion the distillery moved to Lambeth and then to its present site in Kennington. From 2013 it has been owned by Pernod Ricard.
