Packaged in the same iconic bottle and almost identically labelled to the original 47.3% Tanqueray Special Dry ‘Export Strength’, this lower 43.1% strength was introduced in 1999 and is made to the original Tanqueray recipe. This is the perfect strength for cocktails so is our Tanqueray of choice.
Tanqueray gins are distilled by the traditional one-shot process in a 200 year old copper pot still nicknamed ‘Old Tom’. The recipe which has remained unchanged since 1830 has three dominant botanicals: Tuscan juniper, angelica and coriander, giving both these gins the same crisp, dry style with a rich juniper flavour.
