Beefeater Burrough’s Reserve

Beefeater Burrough’s Reserve Edition 2 is a testament to the fact that doing things differently can create an exceptional outcome. Like the first edition, Edition 2 is a drink for those who are looking for something new, something rare and hard to find.

Now rested in red and white Bordeaux oak casks after distillation, Edition 2 emerges with – a copper hue and complex depth of flavour, making it perfect for those looking to explore new flavour experiences. Each batch created is unique. A product of their hand-crafted approach to distillation. They only create a limited number of bottles for release.

Distilled using James Burrough’s original copper “Still Number 12”, Burrough’s Reserve Edition 2 gin is then rested in red and white Bordeaux oak casks. With a capacity of only 268 litres, “Still Number 12” produces small batches of this complex gin, with each batch being intriguing in its own right. The result of the resting period is a remarkable transformation, imbuing the gin with the subtle characteristics of the oak and residual Bordeaux red and white wines.

With a capacity of only 268L, Still Number 12 (James Burrough’s original still) produces small batches of sophisticated spirit with its own intriguing character. The batches are so limited that each bottle of Burrough’s Reserve displays its batch and bottle number on the label.

With similarities to a fine single malt or barrel-aged rum, its long and complex finish encourages the drinker to linger over the liquid, allowing the subtle citrus flavours to develop, which lead on to juniper before finishing on gentle spice.

Nose:Soft, oak spice, balanced by the sweet, fresh aroma of juniper and citrus.
Palate:Rich, juniper-lead spice develops into the softer notes of oak and showing a hint of dried fruit and liquorice on the finish.
