Beefeater Pink Gin is a vibrant new strawberry gin from Beefeater London.

Created by master distiller Desmond Payne MBE, it’s based on the classic award-winning Beefeater Dry recipe and flavored with strawberry.

In a marketplace of flavored spirits, it’s the first gin in the U.S. to be naturally flavored with hints of strawberry.

The sweet strawberry aroma and flavor are joined by the classic Beefeater finish of soft juniper and citrus.

This is an enjoyable gin for neat sipping: It’s more fun gin than serious gin, with a lovely, rosy aesthetic.

Beefeater Pink was created with cocktails in mind, and it’s ready to party.

Pink is trending in wine and spirits categories, first with rosé wines, and now in the gin category.

  • Gordon’s Pink gin launched last year, flavored with raspberries and strawberries. (All the gin blogger reviews we’ve read prefer Beefeater Pink.)
  • In Spain, pink gin accounts for 40% of all value growth (the monetary value of the growth) within the total gin category.
  •  
    It’s time to treat your taste buds to the pink trend, and the flavor of Beefeater Pink Gin.

    Mother’s Day is coming up, and plan ahead for Valentine’s Day. There’s a special rose cocktail recipe below.

    If you can’t find Beefeater Pink locally, you can buy it online at Reserve Bar, if your state allows mail order alcohol.

    THE FLAVORS OF GIN

    Gin is one of the more complex spirits, in terms of the layering of botanicals (herbs, fruits and spices). Each brand of gin has its own proprietary recipe.

    Gin begins with a neutral grain spirit imbued with select blend of botanicals; the conventional ones are listed here.

    What’s In Your Gin?

  • Almond: Brings a hint of marzipan and soft spice.
  • Angelica Root: Adds woody, spicy notes and balanced flavors.
  • Angelica Seed: Fragrant and hop-like with floral notes.
  • Coriander Seed: Releases ginger, sage and lemon flavors.
  • Juniper: The essential botanical in all gins.
  • Lemon Peel: Adds a sharp and crisp citrus profile.
  • Liquorice Root: Woody and bittersweet, spicy yet mellow.
  • Orris Root: Aromatic and floral with a hint of Parma Violet.
  • Seville Orange Peel: Hand-picked Seville oranges grown in Spain.
  •  
    And for Beefeater Pink:

  • Fresh Strawberries: Adds a delicate fresh flavor.
