Tanqueray is one of our favourite gins, so any special variant is something to be happy about. This is brilliant stuff, flavoured with Rangpur limes - a zesty and very juicy Indian variety. The results are lip-smackingly delicious.
A superpremium smallbatch Tanqueray named after the number of the No. 10 still in which it is made. A superb controlled explosion of very aromatic botanical flavours, and it looks very good on your mantelpiece / drinks cabinet.
Tanqueray have revived founder Charles Tanqueray's 1835 recipe of Old Tom Gin – a classic sweeter style of gin. The botanicals include juniper, angelica root, coriander and liquorice – the same recipe as for their London Dry, but in higher proportions. The label is a replica of the last bottles of the original, which was discontinued in 1921. A limited edition release, get it before it's gone.
Relaunched in early 2013, Tanqueray Malacca is a sweeter gin with less juniper emphasis and more citrus than the classic style. Originally introduced in the late 1990s, Malacca was discontinued after a short lifespan but has been resurrected after gradually assuming cult status among cocktail revivalist bartenders as a good substitute for the original Old Tom styles of gin.
