TANQUERAY GORDON & CO LIMITED

Tanqueray Gordon & Co. Ltd. is a producer of exceptional gins that have found favour and custom all around the world, with consumers, bartenders (or mixologists as they are now better known as.) Gordon's Gin is the world's best selling gin and Tanqueray Gin is the leading imported gin in the USA, where it's reputation as the definitive gin for a Dry Martini is unequalled.The still called 'Old Tom' built in the reign of King George III (1760-1810) is still in use at the distillery today. Alexander Gordon opened his first distillery in 1769 in the Southwark area of London. By 1800, Gordon's Gin had made its name not only in the English market but especially with the sailors of the British Navy and the Merchant Navy, who carried it in their ships to all corners of the world.In 1898, Gordon & Co. amalgamated with Charles Tanqueray & Co. to form Tanqueray Gordon & Co. Gordon's was awarded its first Royal Warrant by King George V in 1925. It has won numerous quality awards in International competitions over the years, for its remarkable quality. Charles Tanqueray, the son of a Bedfordshire clergyman, set up the Bloomsbury distillery in Finsbury in 1830. By 1847 Tanqueray was making inroads among the spice planters and traders of Jamaica, shown by the recovery of a tall ceramic crock discovered in a shipwreck off Kingston, Jamaica, bearing the legend Tanqueray Gin. The Tanqueray crest is worthy of note, combining the heraldic pineapple of the Huguenot Willaume family, from whom the Tanquerays are descended, with 2 battle axes. These recognise the part played by the family in the Third Crusade in Palestine, where they fought under Richard Coeur de Lion (Richard the Lion Heart) in 1191. The family name at this time was spelt Tancrery. Tanqueray has won numerous gold medals and trophies at competitions ranging from San Francisco, via Brussels to London.
