The classic London Dry Gin that defined the genre for generations.
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. 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.
If there were a contest to determine the GOAT (Gin Of All Time), Tanqueray London Dry Gin would be in the finals. A few years ago they took a poll of bartenders all over the world and this Gin was #1. And in a world where it seems that upstart Gin-makers are in a race to see who can have the largest list of botanicals, Tanqueray still famously has only four — mixed in a ratio and procedure that still remains a closely-held secret. But those botanicals are juniper (of course), coriander, angelica root, and licorice. It’s a timeless classic.
