I love a bit of beef, me!!! In fact, like many of you of the more mature kind (I.e. Generation X and older), Beefeater was the first gin I ever tried and I've loved the brand ever since. For many years this was my go to gin. It seeped deep into my soul and started my love affair with all things junipery that continues to this day.
So when I discovered that they had given there classic London Dry a new blood orange twist based on its founder James Borrough's very first Orange Gin that he developed over 150 years ago, I decided to do it justice and taste test it properly by pouring myself a rather large measure over ice with tonic before garnishing it with a wedge of fresh blood orange I got from the co-op the day before. Well if you're going to do a job it's worth doing it properly hey!
So with everything in order I took my first sip and let me tell you it was worth the wait, it tastes just as vibrant as it looks and comes at you with a fabulously citrus palette that springs to life instantly with its bittersweet blood orange flavours. The finish is more traditional with notes of juniper and is a delight. This is a perfect cocktail or spritzer gin that works just as well with a splash of ginger ale. Can I take the bottle home please!!!
