The eternal Gincredible Spirit from London.

Everyone knows Beefeater, even those who don't like Gin. Sold in over 50 countries around the world, this British icon is quintessentially London. Named after the guards at the Tower of London, and distilled in its newest home in Kennington, South London, Beefeater has stood the test of time. It was first made in 1820 by James Burroughs, and after almost 200 years, it's still made in London, using the same recipe. Now, why do we call it "dry Gin" if we know it's obviously wet? Well, "London Dry Gin" is a special and well-regulated concoction: strong juniper lead, no artificial ingredients, no sweeteners, flavors or colors added. What it can have is a buttload of gorgeous botanicals and Beefeater has nine.

Whether you're a Gin snob, occasional drinker or a complete Whisky-head, you'd be silly to ignore the constant quality of Beefeater. It makes the best G&Ts and it's quite lovely neat. We all admire the more high-end "24" edition, but you can never go wrong with the original. It won a medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition every year between 2006 and 2012 and any bar without this Kennington Spirit is an establishment not worth visiting.

Is Gin gluten free? Sort of. While Gin is made from a grain Spirit, which could include wheat, barley or even rye, some experts say that it’s still suitable for those on gluten-free diets due to being distilled. The distillation process removes enough of the gluten protein in the drink to make it gluten-free. But proceed with caution.
Although Beefeater Gin is distilled in Kennington, South London, it is shipped up to Scotland in its distillate form to be blended and bottled.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
Gin was so cheap and popular in London in the first half of the 18th century, an epidemic of drunkenness engulfed the city. There were 7,000 Gin shops by 1730 and wasted Londoners fell victim to acts of violence and widespread addiction. The government had to step in with an emergency legislation to stop the so-called "Gin Craze".
