On Monday night Beefeater Gin stopped into Bar Celine to launch the new Beefeater 24 in the Dallas market. Beefeater 24 is handcrafted with 12 botanicals, including a rare blend of Chinese and Japanese green teas. Dallas marks the tenth market to see the introduction of Beefeater 24, which was first introduced in London in 2008.
Beefeater 24 boasts a blend of natural botanicals sourced from around the world, including grapefruit peel, bitter almond, orris root and Seville orange peel. Accents of rare teas create a well-balanced, multi-layered gin. And rather than a tea-infused spirit, or a gin that's meant to taste like tea, Beefeater 24 uses tea to influence the overall botanical medley, complementing the Beefeater style and bringing a fresh aroma and noticeable smoothness to the final product.
At Bar Celine, Master Distiller Desmond Payne and brand Ambassador Dan Warner were on hand to walk attendees through a gin tasting, and four signature cocktails featuring Beefeater 24 were served, ranging from a take on the classic martini, to a Bar Celine original--the St. Henderson's 24.
