Tanqueray No. Ten Gin (Mini) 5cl
Passion, and attention to detail result in a exquisite gin which stands tall in the hall of fame!
Tanqueray No. Ten Gin
It may be hard to imagine improving on the original Tanqueray, but this gin does just that. Introduced to the world in 2000 it was developed with an extreme passion for quality, and attention to detail which resulted in a gin which, we have to admit, is an exquisite addition to any bar, or drinks cupboard.
Tanqueray No. Ten utilises the classic botanicals from Tanqueray (Juniper, Coriander, Angelica root and Licorice), but instead of a double-distillation process, a four times distillation process is used. It is made in small batches to ensure quality in each batch.
Fresh citrus flavours from limes, orange and pink grapefruit are then added, along with chamomile flowers to "Tiny Ten" (the still which gives the gin its name), which enhances this premium gin even further.
The end result is a gin which is enjoyed the world over by bartenders, restauranteurs, and gin connoissseurs in general. Delightful, delicious, and exquisite citrus burts are to be found in every sip. It takes the already great Tanqueray to a new level. The citrus giving new heights of refreshment, and the chamomile adding a gentle floral edge to the aroma. We can certainly see why this is so well thought of, and feel its a must add to any gin shelf.
It's worthy of note that this is the only gin to have been inducted in the San Francisco World Spirits competition hall of fame! Well deserved.
This is definitely a gin which can be enjoyed simply, as a delicious gin and tonic. Add a neutral tonic (such as Fentimans Indian Tonic), lots of ice and a wedge of pink grapefruit. To enhance the citrus flavours that little bit more, try adding Fentimans Valencian Orange Tonic, which brings a zestiness to the drink from the orange oils in the tonic.
For a cocktail, this makes an absolutely amazing Martini. Stir (not shake!) 50ml of gin with 10ml of Martini Extra Dry Vermouth, and strain into a chilled Martini glass. Garnish with a twist of lemon. Cheers!
