The History of Gin – Video

The feedback to our story Beefeater – A Look at The Iconic London Dry Gin, was so positive, we thought we’d bring you some additional gems that we got on the Beefeater Tour. This is a video of Beefeater Master Distiller Desmond Payne talking about the History of Gin.

(A side note, the yellow beeping thing that chirps and beeps through out the video is an alcohol level detector that is used to make sure that the area is safe to be in and doesn’t have a dangerous level of alcohol in the air).

Be sure to check out our complete Beefeater Article for a complete look inside Beefeater London Dry Gin as well as our video of Beefeater Master Distiller Desmond Payne talking about distilling Gin at Beefeater.
