Gin - Traditional Dry
Tanqueray Imported London Dry Gin
This score falls in the 91st percentile of all spirits in the Gin category and is an example of the very best in its class.
Tanqueray was first made by Charles Tanqueray in London beginning in 1830. Eventually, WWII destroyed most of the distillery and its remnant were relocated to Scotland, where it is made today. Tanqueray was one of the first distilleries to use double-distillation methods (later, triple-distillation and today quadruple-distilled) as well as being one of the very first "premium" gins on the market. Charles Tanqueray was preceded by Alexander Gordon and his Gordon's gin from as far back as 1769 and a warrant from King George himself in 1925. The two companies were combined to Tanqueray Gordon & Company in 1898.
Tanqueray Gin is one of the iconic gins of the world and claims an unchanged recipe for 130 years. It is a classic London dry with heavy juniper flavors bottled at various proofs for different markets (typically 94.6 proof in the US). Today it is the #1 imported gin into the US.
