Gin mixes in London markets

Beefeater London Dry Gin has launched another limited edition expression, this time inspired by London’s food markets. Developed by master distiller Desmond Payne, Beefeater London Market Gin will be available in key global markets, including Spain, UK, Turkey and Bulgaria.

A vibrant, refreshing gin with the addition of berry-like notes from pomegranate seeds, a soft citrus tone from kaffir lime leaves and a touch of spice from cardamom pods, which softly perfume the gin without overwhelming it.

To take advantage of the exotic fruit and spice flavours Beefeater brand ambassador Tim Stones has developed a series of delicious new cocktails and punches including ‘Kaffir Lime-ade’, ‘Pommy Punch’ and ‘Portobello Punch’:
