Why is Tanqueray Gin one of the Top 20 Gins in the World? 

Tanqueray Gin has a long and fascinating history and is in the top 10 highest selling gins in the world. Charles Tanqueray opened the original distillery in the 1830’s in London, before merging with Gordon’s to form ‘Tanqueray Gordon & Co’ and moving to their distillery.

Tanqueray is a classic and popular gin that embodies everything associated with a London Dry Gin. It’s a staple of many gin shelves and back bars, and rightly so. Whilst it is not a complex gin, it makes an excellent crisp and dry gin and tonic with juniper at the forefront.

In a recent poll of gin drinkers by The Gin Guide, Tanqueray proved to be the most popular out of all mainstream gins. For this exact reason, we have dedicated an entire afternoon of gin appriciating fun, starting this August!

Join us every Sunday for a gin-tastic afternoon with fellow Gin lovers.
