For a clear spirit, gin is full of complexities. So we've teamed up with Tanqueray to delve into its storied past, unveil its intricacies and help you become a seasonal gin connoisseur.

Back in the 1830s, Charles Tanqueray crafted an infallible gin recipe and kicked off our love affair with the spirit. That love for the juniper-based tipple has spanned many generations and has never ceased in popularity, despite taking on many different incarnations. From classic martinis (shaken, stirred or thrown) and prohibition-era southsides to the citrus-packed fizz and very trendy spritz, there’s one thing that’s obvious about this spirit: it endures.

But, given its versatility, it can be hard to decide what type of gin cocktail to drink and when. If you’re looking to branch out from the classic G&T (which you mastered years ago), we’ve partnered with Tanqueray to guide you through the ins and outs of gin. We’ve found you the perfect gin cocktail for every season, as well as a throng of ways to enjoy it — at home, events and at bars around town.

Once you’ve brushed up on your gin savoir-faire, grab a bottle of your favourite Tanqueray and start swirling, shaking and stirring at home.
