Tanqueray No. 10

What kind of gift is dependable and constant? Alcohol. It is really hard to go wrong with gifting alcohol. You're pretty well set if you avoid the wine bags or jello shots at the checkout stand and any other things that you would have taken to your college party. It's true that you could just pick up a bottle that you can bring to your Christmas party but why not think outside the box? 

A great bottle of gin never goes out of style when it comes to celebrating and gifting. A safe choice for any occasion, the juniper-based cocktail can be given as a nice Christmas present or as a last-minute addition to your home bar.

When you are choosing a gin for your gin enthusiast friend you can also go with the exquisite Tanqueray No. Ten. 

Tanqueray No. 10

History Of Tanqueray

Charles and Edward Tanqueray, brothers, established the well-known gin company Tanqueray in London, England, in 1830. Tanqueray London Dry Gin, the initial gin they distilled, is still available for purchase.

The continuous distillation technology was developed in 1832, therefore it was an advantageous time to build a distillery. This made it possible to produce gins with greater finesse. Up until that point, Old Tom gin was the most widely consumed type, as it concealed some of the gin's flaws with sugar. Tanqueray was among the first to develop this new London Dry Gin style; with continuous distillation, this extra sweetness wasn't necessary.

Tanqueray is currently distilled at the popular Camron Bridge Distillery in Fife, Scotland. Under the direction of Master Distiller Terry Fraser, the group upholds Charles Tanqueray's heritage and guarantees that Tanqueray's calibre is unmatched.

Tanqueray London Dry is made in three huge copper pot stills at the distillery. One is known as "Old Tom" and has been continuously used for more than 250 years, dating back to King George III's reign. 

Tanqueray No. Ten

Tanqueray No. Ten was first released in 2000 and is named after the pot still number 10, also affectionately known as Tiny Ten. Tanqueray No. Ten is an ultra-premium gin created by an unwavering quest for excellence. Tanqueray No. Ten the only gin created from fresh fruits is distilled in small quantities.

Just eight botanicals—not ten—are used in Tanqueray No. Ten gin. It expands the Tanqueray formula by four. Fresh oranges, limes, and grapefruits are distilled to create the core of Tanqueray No. Ten gin. There is angelica root, liquorice, juniper, and coriander. It also includes three varieties of fresh, entire citrus, and chamomile flowers.
The distinctively smooth mouthfeel is attributed to chamomile flowers, while the carefully chosen and sourced botanicals provide even more layers of unparalleled flavour. Tanqueray No. Ten has an exceptionally smooth finish because it is created with just the best distillate.

Tasting Notes: Tanqueray No.Ten has a distinct flavour of Juniper. Bright lime zest with undertones of red grapefruit and finishes with a touch of angelica and clear liquorice.

Flavour: On the palate, it offers creamy liquorice root, white grapefruit, piney juniper, and notes of peppercorns. The mid-palate shows off angelica and pink grapefruit, while it has the flavour of juniper, bitter orange, and lemon.

The gin offers a medium warmth and an extended aftertaste. As the juniper fades, earthy undertones and citrus zest notes remain.
