Beefeater Summer Gin Arrives for Review

beefeater_summer_resized.jpgIf there's a particular time of the year that we really, really like to drink gin, it's the summer. There's something about a gin and tonic on a warm summer night that just seems so right, you know? In fact, sometimes it seems a bit too right.

In the spirit of summer gin, we just got in a bottle of Beefeater Summer, a london dry gin with elderflower, black currant, and hibiscus flowers. We haven't tasted it yet (it's only nine in the morning, and we like to wait until at least eleven before we have liquor breath), but a quick sniff tells us it's light and fruity, and could be extra dangerous on those aforementioned summer nights.

Luckily, it's slightly lower test than regular Beefeater, clocking in at 80 proof instead of the standard 94, which might just save our bacon. It'll retail for about $20 per 750ML bottle, so look for it in your local liquor store, and we'll get our review up ASAP for this limited-run spirit.
