Until 1947, Tanqueray was sold in many different shaped bottles. The design we recognise today was inspired by a 1920s range of Tanqueray pre-mixed cocktails sold in bottles designed to resemble a cocktail shaker.
The ‘Special Dry’ name formerly applied to this 'Export Strength' Tanqueray was introduced in 1950 but was dropped from the label 2011-2012. Beware in some markets such as the UK a 43.1% Tanqueray is also labelled 'Export Strength'.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 18/06/2013

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Pine fresh juniper with subtle zesty lemon, faint rootyness and black pepper prickle.

Taste:

Clean and pine fresh with juniper bursting forth, closely followed by lemon zest, coriander and rooty notes. The 47.3% strength contributes enlivening cracked black pepper spirity notes.

Aftertaste:

Beautifully balanced and elegant with light peppery notes and lingering piny juniper.
