The classic Tanqueray quality augmented with fresh, whole citrus notes.

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… 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. 

Like all of their products, the exact formulation of Tanqueray No. TEN Gin is kept strictly confidential. But it is fairly well-known that the core Tanqueray botanicals are juniper (of course), coriander, angelica root, and licorice. Tanqueray No. Ten is different from the normal Tanqueray London Dry Gin because it is made in their smallest copper pot still and infused with a melange of fruits into the botanical mix while dialing down the juniper. Those new botanicals include whole white grapefruit, fresh lime, fresh orange, and chamomile flowers. And they are targeting the modern craft cocktail market, delivering it at an exceptional 47.3% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
The Tanqueray Distillery has a smaller still used for product development and experimentation. This still has the affectionate nickname "Tiny Ten." It was determined that this small batch still was the only one that could achieve the flavor profile. Tiny Ten lends its name to the Gin.

Is Gin gluten free? Sort of. While Gin is made from a grain Spirit, which could include wheat, barley or even rye, some experts say that it’s still suitable for those on gluten-free diets due to being distilled. The distillation process removes enough of the gluten protein in the drink to make it gluten-free. But proceed with caution.
Gin was so cheap and popular in London in the first half of the 18th century, an epidemic of drunkenness engulfed the city. There were 7,000 Gin shops by 1730 and wasted Londoners fell victim to acts of violence and widespread addiction. The government had to step in with an emergency legislation to stop the so-called "Gin Craze".
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.
