Tanqueray No. TEN

Scotland's Tanqueray No. TEN was designed for the martini drinker but clearly stands on its own. It takes its name from the still that bore it, and where half the distillation still occurs. This gin is based on the renowned Tanqueray gin with the addition of four botanicals, grapefruit, lime, orange and chamomile. These extra ingredients transformed the traditional gin into a citrus powerhouse. It's attractive on the nose with intense, yet friendly, aromas of juniper, lime, grapefruit and vanilla. The palate offers a distinct sweetness making the fruits come alive and taste as though they were just harvested. The finish offers a touch of spice, with the citrus-topped juniper torte flavors producing an almost candied quality. It's as refreshing and lively a gin as you may ever find.
