Beefeater Crown Jewel 1000ml 50%
A sister gin to Beefeater, Crown Jewel was originally launched in 1993 and became a favourite by virtue of its potency and intense aromatic palate. Discontinued in 2009, it was relaunched in 2015, made to the same recipe as Beefeater Original, but with the use of grapefruit as a botanical and a higher bottling strength.
The idea behind the expression was celebrate the legend that ravens must remain in the Tower of London to prevent the Tower (and the monarchy) from falling. In homage, the names of the eight resident ravens are imprinted on the side of every bottle as part of the new design. For those who are looking closely, the names of the ravens on the original ‘93 release are different to today’s as yes, a gin can be resurrected but once a raven is dead, there’s no coming back… Other contemporary revisions of the original Beefeater Crown Jewel bottle include greater prominence of the Beefeater logo, a limited edition bottle number and the batch number.
It’s long been held in high esteem by many who mourned it’s discontinued status and from a pure flavour perspective – easily makes our top 20 Gins of all time (the bold, bottle design is more like marmite however – but just remember, it was released in the 90’s!). Stock we have Received is Batch No.1
Each Bottle is individually Numbered.
