The Master Celebrates Beefeater At The Tower Of London

I was very fortunate to have been invited to this spectacular and wonderful event, representing the Company at the Tower of London, to mark the unveiling of Beefeater Crown Jewel gin.

Co-hosted by Ryan Chetiyawardana of Lyaness, Alessandro Palazzi of Dukes London and our very own Liveryman and Beefeater Master Distiller, Desmond Payne MBE, I felt very honoured and lucky to have been there, celebrating this iconic brand in it’s “home” setting.

My fellow guests, from London hospitality and charities, were surrounded by Beefeater(s), or more properly “Yeoman Warders”, so it really was a truly immersive experience!

Thank you, Beefeater and especially to Desmond who presided over the evening and made us all feel so very welcome. It was a fabulous evening!
