Walk in to virtually any bar in our fine city and you’ll no doubt hear someone ordering a ‘G&T’. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that they’re ordering one of the UK’s most popular mixers: a gin and tonic – with a slice of lemon of course! These days there’s a whole variety of gins behind the bar, but only one is named after the famous ceremonial guardians of the Tower of London – Beefeaters gin. Beefeater’s history goes back as far as 1820 and it’s currently distillery (in Kennington) is its third home in the city. Out of all the ‘London style’ gins, Beefeater is now the only globally recognised gin to still be made in the capital.
To celebrate its strong connection with London, the people at Beefeater have launched the #MyLondon campaign. To promote this, they’ve also released a series of videos which showcase people discussing why they love London. From fashion in Shoreditch and Mayfair to getting shoes shined in Burlington Arcade, the videos illustrate what makes London one of the greatest cities in the world.
Check out the video below:
To take part in #MyLondon you just need to take a photo of what the city means to you and upload it and your message to the Beefeater MyLondon page. In return, you’ll have the chance to win Beefeater prizes and be one of 1000 images on the new limited-edition bottle of Beefeater. You can also check out the 100s of entries already submitted.
