Since 2016 the bestselling gin in the world. And for good reason! It has great provenance, being first distilled in 1830 by Charles Tanqueray in the Bloomsbury area of London.
Whilst initially produced in London, it is now made in Scotland and is owned by Diageo plc.
It is a London Dry gin (which refers to the distillation process). It is double distilled using grain spirit and has a secret blend of botanicals added during the second distillation process. Not all of these are known obviously, but it does contain four of the "common" gin botanicals, namely: Juniper (a must have in gin!), Coriander, Angelica Root and Liquorice.
