Given that Tanqueray No, 10 Gin summarises the London Dry Gin style; it comes to no surprise that it renders a crisp, dry taste. The recipe of Tanqueray Gin is, a fiercely guarded secret, although it is believed to contain as little as four botanicals. The final Gin is, bottled at 43.1% Alcohol By Volume in the United Kingdom, with strong juniper notes pulling through, along with a hint of spice and a Gin `dry finish.
To, fortunately, capture the story of the Tanqueray as a brand would require a book, maybe even an archive, so please consider the following an abridged version of history, curated from the moments we felt were compelling.
It all began when Charles Tanqueray No, 10 Dry London Gin launched his distillery in the 1830’s on Vine Street in Bloomsbury. It is, believed that the Tanqueray Gin No, 10 Gin recipe as we know it today first came about in 1838 – probably even earlier but older records cannot be, found (presumably lost at some point in the company’s 180-year history!). It is an extraordinary feat given the balance of the Tanqueray Gin and that the same recipe is still used today more so when you consider that he was a beginner distiller in his 20’s.
When Charles departed in 1868, his son inherited the Gin distillery at the age of just 20 and extended his pioneering work. Under his guidance, the business was successful and soon became stocked in the up-market grocers then exported it to the British Colonies. In 1898, Tanqueray No, 10 Gin joined with Gordon's Gin & Company, bonding their place as the best force in distilling, and soon after all production was, transported from the Vine Street Distillery to Gordon’s Gin Goswell Road site.
When Prohibition began in the US in 1920, allegedly Tanqueray Gin & Sons remained to ship Tanqueray Gin to islands just off the US coast in cases intended to float. Socialites would then receive the Tanqueray Gin through the black market and speakeasies. It is, difficult to know if there is any truth in them but we would certainly like to see a case float to the shore the next time we are at the beach.
Tanqueray No, 10 Gin was, distilled in the capital until the great air raid of 1941 when the London distillery was, nearly destroyed. There is only one still that survived the bombing comparatively unharmed (repairs had to be, made though!), the remaining still, known as the “Old Tom”, now remains in Cameron Bridge, Scotland. Despite owned by United Distillers from 1986 (now known as the Diageo Company), John Tanqueray, the great-great-grandson of Charles Tanqueray, was the last member of the Tanqueray family to work with the Tanqueray No, 10 Gin brand and retiring in 1989.
The four botanicals thought to be, used juniper, coriander seed, angelica root and liquorice root all combining to create a smooth gin, well balanced, juniper dominant and everything a gin lover would want in a glass. Tanqueray Gin is both creamy at the domestic 43.1% Alcohol By Volume and export strength of 47.3% Alcohol By Volume, it is easily drinkable and makes for an astonishing G&T.
The absence of citrus botanical makes it somewhat drier than some other London Dry Gins, but the coriander adds both Lemon and piquancy on the nose. Which adds a wholesome citrus twist in the glass and the Tanqueray London Dry Gin seems to be, made for those who enjoy a G&T with a backbone! It is a refreshing Tanqueray Gin to put head to head with Beefeater, but as the two both have a similar heritage, price point and are both distinct as the quintessential London Dry gins. We suggest trying both to see whichever one you prefer (yes, any excuse for possessing two Gins at a time we know!).
