The deep and sumptuous Tanqueray.

Founded by Charles Tanqueray in 1930, this Gin’s famous green-glass bottles have been a staple of the back-bar since before we wore short pants to the pub on Sundays. Tanqueray was said to be a favorite of Frank Sinatra and their lineup is one of the Gins that defined England to the cocktail-making world. Put a bottle of Tanqueray on a double-decker bus next to a big red phone booth with a picture of the Queen in a bowler hat… it just doesn’t get more British than that. Now made by Diageo in Scotland, Tanqueray became the number one selling Gin in the world in 2016.

Tanqueray Blackcurrant Royale Gin is created with only the finest French blackcurrants, vanilla, and the four classic botanicals that go into the London Dry: juniper, coriander, angelica, and licorice. This special expression was inspired by the French heritage and the travels Charles Tanqueray did during the 1840s. The juicy blackcurrants in combination with delicate vanilla result in deep, sumptuous flavors with hints of black orchid throughout. We suggest you taste this one with plenty of ice, lemonade, a wedge of lemon, and some fresh dark berries.

Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
