Tanqueray London Dry Gin is the original product that was launched in 1830; Packaged in the same iconic bottle and almost identically labelled to the original 47.3% Tanqueray Special Dry 'Export Strength', this lower 43.1% strength was introduced in 1999 and is made to the original Tanqueray recipe. This is the perfect strength for cocktails so is our Tanqueray of choice.
Size: 1 Litre ABV: 43.1 % Origin: United Kingdom  

 

Tasting Notes

Tanqueray London Dry Gin is the standard-bearer, and the company provides the identity of only three ingredients — angelica, coriander, and juniper. The rest are secret.  That said, all one really needs to know in Tanqueray is the juniper. Along with Beefeater, I think it’s one of the most juniper-heavy gins on the market. Obviously people are into that: “Tanq & Tonic” is one of the most-called-by-name drinks of all time. The juniper nose is rich and strong on the palate. Secondary flavors are elusive, but you’ll find mildly bitter lemon and orange peel if you hunt for them. That evergreen character is all-encompassing, and as with heavily-peated Scotch, you either like this or you don’t. I find Tanqueray grows on you over time, but my ultimate gin preference is always to seek something with a little more balance and nuance.
