Tanqueray No.10 Gin Overview

Tanqueray No.10 is named after where it stems from, which is still number 10, where it’s crafted from fresh citrus fruits such as Grapefruit, Lemongrass, Orange and Orange Blossom which adds varying levels of a citrusy taste to this premium gin.

If you’ve been in almost any premium bar, you’ll of most likely seen a bottle of Tanqueray No.10 glistening in its glorious green bottle, sat on the bar shelves. This multi-award winning citrus based gin has been welcomed by the vast majority of gin lovers due to its depth of a fresh, clean flavour and sets the bar at what a premium gin should be.

Tanqueray No.10 Gin Tasting Notes

Nose:
Light citrus with hints of pink and white grapefruit, also some richer juniper notes
Palate:
Very clean citrus notes mixed with juniper and peppery tones, slight hint of coriander
Finish:
Citrus notes with a clean, fresh finish

Serving Recommendation

Tanqueray No.10 works brilliantly in a Tom Collins but also works well when served simply with a wedge of grapefruit or most citrus based fruits.

  • 25-50ml Tanqueray No.10 in a highball glass
  • 25-50ml Lemon or Grapefruit juice
  • Add soda and garnish with Lemon or Grapefruit
  • Serve over glass of ice

Overall

Tanqueray No.10 has been a staple gin since 2000, it serves the purpose of being a trendsetter for what a premium gin should be like. Although, with the level of gins constantly improving, it’s questionable how long can Tanqueray No.10 keep this title.
