Review: Tanqueray Gin

Posted by Arctic Wolf on June 30, 2020

Tanqueray Gin was originally produced by Charles Tanqueray in London, England in 1830 at the Bloomsbury Distillery. The distillery prospered through the nineteenth century; but after being in production for over one hundred years, it was badly damaged in the bombing raids of World War II by the German air force. One still survived, and this still affectionately called “Old Tom” was moved to the new facilities in Cameron, Scotland where Tanqueray gin is currently produced.

Tanqueray Gin, is a London Dry Gin distilled four times with the botanicals infused prior to the fourth distillation. According to the Tanqueray website, juniper, coriander, angelica root and licorice are the four major botanicals used in the gin’s construction. The spirit is bottled at different proofs for different regional markets.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Tanqueray Gin

“… Tanqueray Gin has a very obvious juniper flavour which comes forward in the initial delivery; yet the bitterness which so often accompanies juniper seems to be for the most part, absent. Instead, there is a soft lemony sweetness melding into that juniper flavour giving the gin an approachability I was not expecting. Light citric spices add a mild effervescence, and a soft earthy flavour reminiscent of damp soil or humus seems to lie underneath supporting the melded flavours of juniper, lemon and spice …”

Please enjoy my review which includes two serving suggestions, the Gin and Toni (with Lemon) and the Gin Martini.
