It’s delicious and delightful and you should get some of this secret recipe elixir. 
 
Tanqueray is famous for Gin. Their famous green-glass bottles have been a staple of the back-bar since Uncle Flaviar wore short pants to the pub on Sundays. They keep their recipes as trade secrets to this day (but we can tease out the occasional ingredient list). These guys define England for most of the world. Put a bottle of Tanqueray on a double-decker bus next to a big red phone booth… you’ve got England wrapped up in a cliche and ready to go. 
 
Bloomsbury is to London as Brooklyn is to New York… no offense. It is a borough of Camden, smack-dab in the heart of London proper. It was also the home to the original Tanqueray distillery in 1830. So how is Tanqueray Bloomsbury different from the rest of the Tanqueray line? The label lists some pretty standard ingredients, but obviously—and intentionally—leaves some off. So, they won’t tell you—all that “secret recipe” stuff—but we will. 
 
The “Bloomsbury Martini” has been around for a century. Heck, even Tanqueray has an “official” version on their website. And notice that the seal and cap are a periwinkle blue color? So, to Uncle Flaviar’s taste buds and Sherlock-ian deductive capacity, Tanqueray Bloomsbury is most likely their straight-up “No. 10” premium Gin with the addition of sage, a bit more lemon zest, and a floral … perhaps Gentiana root. 
 
It’s delicious and delightful and you should get some. We have to go now since the British Secret Service is at the door looking to ask us some uncomfortable questions… please send a barrister immediately.

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.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
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.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
