30 May Gin of the Month: Tanqueray Gin
Launched in London by Charles Tanqueray in the 1830s, Tanqueray is a classic London Dry Gin. The distillery, now based in Scotland under the Diageo brand, still uses the same recipe as from almost two centuries ago. As the old saying goes, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ and that’s certainly true when it comes to gorgeous gins!
Why is Tanqueray Gin so popular?
The recipe includes just four botanicals and delivers a gin that is juniper-heavy, fresh on the nose, and dry on the palate with juniper and citrus. The secret recipe is a closely guarded secret but consists of juniper, coriander seed, angelica root and liquorice. It makes an excellent gin and tonic (garnish with lime) and it’s one of our favourite gins here at Just Gin(ish) Dorset’s number 1 mobile gin bar! But it’s not just us who loves this gin. Many royals and rappers are also fans!
Snoop Dogg, one of the biggest rappers on Earth, is a big gin fan. His tipple of choice is none other than Tanqueray. Tanqueray is enjoyed all over the world and has had particular success in North America. Snoop Dogg’s hit ‘Gin & Juice’ quite possibly had something to do with this. Another Californian boy, Dr Dre is also a Tanqueray-lover. Clearly Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre have bonded over their common love for the smooth gin with its iconic bottle!
