A Seasonal Guide to the Botanical Tipple
The Gin List

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 generations and continues to this day, despite taking on many incarnations. From classic martinis (shaken, stirred or thrown) and prohibition-era southsides to the citrus-packed fizz and trendy spritz, there’s one obvious thing about the 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 ready to branch out from your go-to G&T, we’ve partnered with Tanqueray and Liquorland to lend a helping hand. We’ve found you the perfect gin cocktail for every season (or for those unseasonably warm and cool days we so often encounter). Plus, we’ve paired each cocktail with an easy dish to whip up and tracked down a throng of ways to enjoy the spirit — at home, at events and at bars around town.

Grab your Tanqueray of choice at Liquorland and start mixing the below cocktails.

Once you’ve brushed up on your gin savoir-faire, grab a bottle of your favourite Tanqueray from Liquorland, receive a complimentary Tanqueray & Tonic bottle* and start swirling, shaking and stirring at home.
