Tanqueray Ten is a gin with inimitable taste that is both fine and powerful. Very fresh, it differs from the gins said "classic" by the presence of fresh citrus rather than dried citrus traditionally used.
This gin is made from white grapefruit, whole Florida oranges, Mexican limes, juniper berries, coriander seeds, chamomile flowers, Angelica roots and liquorice.
Distilled in small quantities in number 10 stills, nicknamed Tiny Ten (mini 10) and that's where Tanqueray Ten gin takes its name from. This distillation allows the gin to develop a wealth of aromas and to obtain intense citrus flavours.
