New Product: Beefeater Summer Gin

With Memorial Day coming up this weekend, the unofficial start of summer is upon us. What better way to celebrate than with a new gin!?

Beefeater Summer Gin is the latest creation from master distiller Desmond Payne, and this lighter style gin is perfect for the warm weather season. In addition to the 9 natural botanicals used in the original Beefeater London Dry Gin, Beefeater Summer Gin features elderflower, black currant, and hibiscus. It’s simply delicious! Stephanie and I were lucky enough to sneak an early taste of the product back in March and it knocked our socks off!

Beefeater Summer Gin will be sponsoring Thursday Drink Night over at the Mixoloseum on Thursday, June 24th, so there are sure to be a bevy of new cocktail ideas to come, but there’s also something to be said for keeping it simple and letting this gin shine. For easy summer-sipping, it’s delightful when mixed with just Cranberry Juice and lime!

Beefeater Summer & Cranberry

1 part Beefeater Summer Edition Gin
3 parts cranberry Juice
Squeeze of fresh lime juice

Combine ingredients in a tall glass with ice. Garnish with lime wheel.

Serve a pitcher of that alongside some Blueberry Lemonade and you’ve got a festive red & blue look for Memorial Day!

Keep in mind, Beefeater Summer Gin is a limited edition product. It’s only available in 750ml and comes with a price tag of about $19. It will only be available in retail stores through the end of summer, so make sure to get your hands on some early and often! You won’t regret it!

Cheers!

    Do you have any specifics as to when Beefeater 24 or Beefeater Summer Gin will get to Chicago? The Beefeater website is incredibly useless as to this sort of important information and your site appears to be considerably more informative in this matter.
    Thanks!

      Glad we can be of help! Beefeater 24 had a fantastic Chicago launch back in March, so the product should be available in your local retail stores now. Summer Gin launches in June and, again, is a limited edition product, so you’ll want to scoop that one up fast!

        That is good to hear but frustrating at the same time. One of the more prominent local spirit sellers with multiple locations is not carrying it and their staff at more than one location has no idea Beefeater 24 exists…
        I may be stuck with inquiring around to associates in other states to obtain one or both of these via shipping…
