Tanqueray launches London gin train

11th May, 2017 by Annie Hayes

Diageo-owned gin brand Tanqueray No. Ten has partnered with the Belmond British Pullman to launch a gin and food pairing experience on a journey through the British countryside – priced at £450 per ticket.

As part of the brand’s Perfect Ten Series – a campaign celebrating the craftsmen behind luxury UK brands – Tanqueray fans can board the vintage carriages of the Belmond British Pullman, the sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, to embark on a journey “like no other”.

Hosted by Gary Franklin, managing director of Belmond Trains and Cruises and Tanqueray No. Ten brand ambassador Tim Homewood, guests can enjoy a menu of seven dishes designed to match the botanicals of the gin, complimented with a matching cocktail.

After dinner the group will enjoy a tailored masterclass experience with Homewood, who will help them create bespoke Martinis with fresh fruits, herbs and spices.

At the same time, global brand ambassador Stephanie Jordan, and Diageo gins historian Joanne McKerchar will educate guests about the history of the brand.
