Beefeater Gin is a brand of gin bottled, and distributed in the United Kingdom, by the company of James Burrough. It is a 47% alcohol product (94 proof) in the US and New Zealand, 37.1% alcohol in Australia, and a 40% alcohol product (80 proof) elsewhere in the world (including the UK). This gin is distilled from "100% grain spirit". The manufacturer has been in business since 1820 and is located in Kennington, London. Although the name "beefeater" refers to the Yeoman Warders who are the ceremonial guards of the Tower of London, the bottle actually appears the have a Yeoman of the Guard, not a beefeater on it.

According to the Beefeater website, Beefeater Gin contains nine different botanicals: juniper, angelica root, angelica seeds, coriander seeds, liquorice, almonds, orris root, seville oranges, and lemon peel. These botanicals are steeped for 24 hours before distillation. Distillation takes eight hours to complete. The distilled spirit is then taken to Scotland where it is blended and bottled.
