Handcrafted in small batches, Tanqueray No. Ten is the first gin distilled using fresh citrus fruits and botanicals, which give it a unique taste. The exact proportions used are a closely guarded secret; only four people in the world know the Tanqueray recipes, which are kept under three locks in a black ledger known as ‘The Bible’.
Tanqueray No. TEN has won numerous awards since its launch in 2000. In 2003 it had unprecedented wins as ‘Best White Spirit’ three times in a row at the San Francisco World Spirits competition leading to the creation of ‘Hall of Fame’, the only gin to receive this accolade.
Tanqueray No. Ten (94.6 proof)
Nose: Transparent, ethereal and delicately mouth-watering. It’s as if the essences of each botanical have been lightly sprayed onto the base spirit.
Taste: Lovely blend of citrus and juniper carefully balanced with more subtle additions to the profile. One of the few gins that can be enjoyed warm, right out of the bottle. Summer in a glass.
Finish: Sweet, with hints of lemongrass and fresh spruce.
Overall: One of the world’s greatest gins, hands down. Bring a case or two if you find yourself stranded on a desert island. Seriously, this is THE gin.
GSN Rating: A++
