Is Tanqueray an ethical spirits brand?

Originating in the United Kingdom and owned by Diageo Plc, Tanqueray is a brand of gin.

Despite currently having a low score, The Good Shopping Guide still recommends that Tanqueray get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. After receiving its application, we would assess Tanqueray and then offer it some advice on how to work on its score.

What does Tanqueray receive a top rating for?

Due to its lack of negative records, Tanqueray receives a top rating for Armaments, Animal Welfare and Fossil Fuels.

Is Tanqueray gin organic?

Unfortunately, Tanqueray products are not organic. Diageo, Tanqueray’s parent company does not produce any organic products, nor has it received certification.

As a result, Tanqueray revives a bottom score for The Good Shopping Guide’s Organic category.

What can Tanqueray do to improve its score? 

Tanqueray’s below-benchmark score within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Spirits sector is the result of a calculation of multiple ethical criteria.

Although it does not yet reach our minimum Ethical Benchmark, we still recommend that Tanqueray apply for Ethical Accreditation. By applying, Tanqueray would receive some tips on how to work on its bottom scores and become a more ethical spirits brand.
