It starts with the man. Charles Tanqueray. The bold spirit who traded in the church for the still. And in the process, created one of the world's most awarded gins. Distilled four times. A perfectionist who kept It simple. Four botanicals. Juniper, coriander, angelica, and licorice to create the perfect balance. A balance that created a flavor. A flavor that created a taste. And a taste that drew suspicion and the envy of other gin makers. The red waxed seal passed on from one generation to the next to mark this gin above all other.
Tonight we toast the bold spirit worthy of its seal and 180 years of distilling excellence. Tonight We Tanqueray.
