The essence of the Tanqueray brand goes back to 1830 when Charles Tanqueray, descended from three generations of clergymen, chose not to follow the family calling and instead opened a distillery in Bloomsbury, London. Charles’ refusal to accept the status quo meant that he spent many years testing the finest botanicals from around the world. Today, Tanqueray gin continues Charles Tanqueray’s legacy of excellence.
Launched in 2000, Tanqueray No.TEN is recognised for making the most refreshing tasting martini cocktails, winning ‘Best White Spirit’ three times in a row at the San Francisco World Spirits competition, while Tanqueray itself is recognised by some of the most respected bartenders and experts across the world as the ultimate in gin.
Tanqueray No. TEN is handcrafted in small batches using fresh citrus fruits (grapefruits, orange and limes) and other fine botanicals.
In 2003, Diageo- the world’s leading premium drinks business- established The Reserve Brands Group, its boutique division of luxury spirit brands. The group includes the multi-award winning portfolio of Johnnie Walker, Ketel One vodka, Ron Zacapa rum, Don Julio tequila, Cîroc vodka, Tanqueray London Dry gin, Tanqueray No. Ten gin and The Classic Malts Selection.
