Tanqueray is a brand of gin produced by Diageo plc and marketed worldwide. Although it originated in England, it is now produced in Scotland. It does not command a sizable market share in its native market, its largest market being North America, where it is the highest selling gin import, followed by southern Europe.
Tanqueray is a London dry gin; it is so called because of its distillation process, as well as originating in Bloomsbury, London. London dry gin is made by means of double distillation of grain. Botanicals are added during the second distillation. The recipe is a closely guarded trade secret, although it is known to contain four botanicals (juniper, coriander, angelica root and liquorice).
Another entry into the super-premium Gin market seeking to re-define the gin experience. Made from 100% grain neutral spirits, Tanqueray No.Ten is the only Gin in the world produced using hand picked, whole-fruit fresh botanicals. Under the watchful eye of Tanquerays master distiller, a small batch distillation imparts an exquisite depth and character helping to develop the 'heart' of the Gin through redistillation. This is a Gin to create the classic Martini. Alternatively drink straight up, chilled with a twist of lemon.
