Tanqueray No. Ten Gin 1 Litre: A Deep Dive into Citrusy Perfection

Standing tall at a luxurious 1 litre size, Tanqueray No. Ten Gin offers a refined drinking experience for gin connoisseurs and casual enthusiasts alike. This award-winning spirit, enshrined in the San Francisco Spirits Hall of Fame, is renowned for its exceptional smoothness and vibrant citrus character.

A Legacy of Craftsmanship

Tanqueray No. Ten takes its name from the iconic "Tiny Ten" still, a unique copper vessel that plays a vital role in the gin's production. This small-batch distillation process allows for meticulous attention to detail, ensuring the capture of the botanicals' most delicate nuances.

Four times distilled, Tanqueray No. Ten builds upon the classic London Dry foundation of juniper, coriander, angelica, and liquorice. The magic truly unfolds with the addition of fresh, whole citrus fruits (grapefruits, oranges, limes) and chamomile flowers.

Unveiling the Flavour Profile

Nose:  The initial aroma is a delightful interplay of citrus zest. Bright grapefruit and orange peel take centre stage, offering a burst of freshness. Hints of juniper peek through, interwoven with subtle floral notes from the chamomile. There's a touch of warmth on the nose, hinting at the spirit's strength without being overpowering.

Palate:  The first sip is a revelation. Tanqueray No. Ten delivers a luxuriously smooth and silky mouthfeel. The citrus explosion from the nose translates beautifully onto the palate, with juicy grapefruit and orange flavours dominating. The juniper provides a subtle backbone, adding complexity and structure. The chamomile emerges in the mid-palate, offering a hint of floral sweetness that perfectly complements the citrus. The finish is refreshingly clean, with a lingering touch of juniper and zesty citrus.

Balance is Key:  One of the most striking aspects of Tanqueray No. Ten is its remarkable balance. The citrus notes are vibrant but never overpowering, allowing the other botanicals to shine through. The juniper presence is subtle yet grounding, providing a classic gin character without bitterness. The chamomile adds a touch of intrigue, elevating Tanqueray No. Ten beyond the realm of ordinary gins.

The Perfect Serve

Tanqueray No. Ten's inherent citrus character makes it ideal for a variety of cocktails. Here are a few suggestions to unlock its full potential:

  • The Classic Gin & Tonic: This timeless combination allows the gin's flavours to take centre stage. Fill a highball glass with ice, add a generous measure of Tanqueray No. Ten, top with premium tonic water, and garnish with a wedge of pink grapefruit.
  • The Sophisticated Martini: For a martini with a contemporary twist, combine Tanqueray No. Ten with a touch of dry vermouth and a squeeze of fresh grapefruit juice. Shake well with ice, strain into a chilled martini glass, and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
  • The Refreshing Summer Cup: Perfect for a warm day, create a delightful summer cup by combining Tanqueray No. Ten with elderflower liqueur, fresh grapefruit juice, soda water, and a selection of seasonal fruits.
