Following in the footsteps of founder, Charles Tanqueray, the Tanqueray distillers experimented for years to create Tanqueray No. TEN. Today every batch of Tanqueray No. TEN is still hand batched by Master Distiller: Terry Fraser.
Tanqueray No. TEN uses all of the citrus fruit in the production process, rather than just the citrus peel. It is this citrus heart that is distilled in a small pot still, known as Tiny Ten.
From here this citrus heart is added to the iconic Tanqueray base of four botanicals – juniper, coriander, angelica and liquorice as well as camomile flowers, resulting in the iconic Tanqueray No. TEN.
Juniper is integrated with freshly squeezed lime, orange and pink grapefruit juice while white pepper and coriander spice add depth. All these flavours continue through the long, smooth almost creamy finish.
- Limes, oranges and grapefruit are distilled in a small pot still from the 1950's known as Tiny Ten, which is also what Tanqueray No.TEN is names after.
- Tanqueray No.TEN has won more than 40 recognised international awards since its launch.
A small batch gin with delicious flavours of grapefruit, orange and lime. Complimented with a grapefruit wedge for a bright and complex citrus flavour.
