THE STORY

 

Our founder was James Burrough. Born in 1835 in Ottery St Mary, Devon, Burrough trained as a pharmacist in the nearby city of Exeter before entering the world of distilling.


Burrough did not immediately make Beefeater. Instead, he spent many years perfecting his skills, creating wonderful inventions included raspberry gin, cherry brandy, British Brandy, bitters and mint.


Named after the famous guards of the Tower of London, every drop of Beefeater has been made in London, and, of all the other original London Gins from the 1800s, we are the last still left in London today.


Our current Master Distiller, Desmond Payne MBE, is a true icon of the drinks world. He began his career in 1967, the year Rolling Stone hit magazine stands for the first time, The Beatles released Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Muhammad Ali was stripped of his heavyweight belts.


In his fifty years in the business, Desmond has witnessed intriguing cutting-edge developments in the bar world. His passion for heritage and innovation, and his unrivalled expertise has truly helped shape gin’s image for a new age by producing flavour profiles that appeals to consumers around the world over.
