There's a reason why in "Casablanca," Humphrey Bogart doesn't lament about all the "passion-fruit flavored vodka joints in the world." Gin is one of the most popular clear spirits on the planet.
It's classic. It's timeless. And if you give it a chance, it's likely to surprise you. Beefeater 24 is a remarkably smooth gin, with a spot-on combination of traditional ingredients such as juniper, orange peel and licorice. But there's more to this delightful spirit: master distiller Desmond Payne has also infused 24 with a blend of Japanese Sencha and Chinese teas, along with bitter almond and grapefruit peels. In a word: sumptuous.
