Tanqueray No.10 Gin: Over 180 years ago Charles Tanqueray was on a mission to create the world’s finest gin. He set up his distillery in Bloomsbury, London in 1830 and, after years of experimentation and searching for the finest ingredients, Tanqueray London Dry was born. Since then, Tanqueray has continued to be driven by Charles’ spirit of exploration and innovation and we now have a portfolio including Tanqueray No.Ten, Tanqueray Rangpur and limited editions inspired by Charles’ recipes.
It is this rich heritage, ingenuity and superior quality and taste that has led to Tanqueray winning numerous prestigious awards, including being named the bartenders favourite gin in Drinks International Annual Bar Report 2017
