why don't we all petition Beefeater until they relent and start producing again ....

I first tasted Crowne Jewel at the Duke's Hotel in St. James when I was living in London. The bartender (Guiseppe?) wheeled up a silver cart, chilling and mixing, finishing with a dramatic twist of a lemon that involved kicking up one leg. It may have been the most expensive martini I ever drank, and undoubtedly the best. A good dry martini was hard to find in London back then. I still import it to the US occassionally, although it isn't cheap. Worth every penny, however.

Then Nev, you can be very proud. Your Grandfather is a genius. This is such a fantastic Gin.

My claim to fame is that this gin is my Grandad's recipe. He was the Distillery Manager at Beefeater Gin in London until he retired around 15 years ago. I try to find him the odd bottle every now and again......

This gin is so unique it can be savoured neat which leaves a silky feeling on the tongue, sheer indulgence.I wish that it was available in the local supermarket.

I first tasted this nectar when it came on the market but found it was only available in Duty Free. Being now retired I am now deprived and do wish it would appear in Sainsburys or some similar easy to reach supplier. Hugh

I got a bottle of Crown Jewel at the Philadelphia Airport about 9 years ago and have been looking for it to no avail ever since. It is the best gin I have ever experienced.

The best. If/when this runs out the tower of London will crumble into the ground and we"ll all have to drink Tanqueray No10 instead... :-(

To answer 13 july 2008. Beefeater have stopped producing this gin, there still seems to be plenty of it available. But if you really love it, as i do, then i would buy a case for the cellar...

I first bought a bottle at SF duty free and then another at Heathrow duty free. Now I can't find it anywhere.Is it still available?
- anonymous, 13th Jul '08
I agree. My parents picked some up for me on their way through Heathrow and I really like the taste!

I, too, am a longtime gin fan and I got a couple bottles of this at Heathrow and it is superior to all other gins I've tasted. Pamper yourself!
