The Master Distiller of Beefeater Gin, Desmond Payne, has been making gin for over 40 years. At the London Distillery, he acts as the guardian of James Burrough’s original gin recipe, developed in the 1820s and still going strong today. Payne likes to get involved in every aspect of the gin-making process, from picking the ingredients to overseeing the distilling. Beefeater 24 was the first gin recipe he created himself, adding two types of tea to the familiar citrus and juniper notes. In this video, he shows viewers the Distillery and discusses the places he finds his inspiration for new flavors.
