Tanqueray Export Strength Gin - 43.1deg ABV - Morrisons

27
Found 13th Dec 2016Made hot 13th Dec 2016
I popped into Morrisons to look for the 70cl bottle of Tanqueray gin which I had seen was £15 and discovered to my delight that the 100cl (1 Litre) bottle was only £1 more.
I have been drinking this stuff for years and have never seen it this cheap in the UK so I reckon that it's gotta be the bargain of the week for gin lovers. I gave up drinking the understrength Gordons years ago and this stuff knocks Gordons for 6.
I couldn't see it on Morrisons website so have no idea if it's local, a few stores or the whole chain. I found this in the St Albans store.

I have tried to copy a photo that I took of the shelf at Morrisons showing the price tag etc but cannot figure it out. Looks a bit more than just "Cut 'n Paste" !! Help appreciated.

I'm glad you said that my hubby bought some the other day and I thought we had paid more by accident because it is listed for £26 online.

It's been listed on here a couple times over the last week or so.

Price changed back on Monday



I bought it at lunchtime today and have definitely been charged £16 so are you saying that the price should no longer be £16?
What do you mean by "changed back on Monday"?

For once I forgot to check for duplication so apologies - Over to you Mods.

Thought this offer was on till the 18th?

So only 21.55% ABV then? Pretty rubbish gin.

Great Gin at a bargain price! Hot!

Neither Morrisons in my area have any stock of the litres - and I've been checking regularly since this was posted last week. It's not been advertised anywhere - not on their website or mysupermarket or anywhere - so I suspect it's an unadvertised clearance deal. Great if you can find it, otherwise a bit of a wild goose chase.

​Yeh it's normally only the busier ones,had this and grey goose £22 the other day in Cheadle

Available at my local mozza - £16 for a very decent gin. Bought 2

Okay Gin tastes 43% though, sainsburys ttd gin tastes better though imo, around same strength though

OP, please amend the title, it's 43.1% ABV, not proof. Proof is double the ABV, so it would be 86.2 proof.

​No worries. Thought it might help clear up any confusion regarding export strength seeming lower than the regular stuff

​I seemed to recall that whereas many spirits are now 40 deg ABV whereas many years ago they were 70 deg.
You may therefore be interested to learn that "deg proof" is only twice the ABV in the US. The UK "deg proof" equivalent is in fact 1.75 x the ABV so that 40 deg ABV x 1.75 = 70 deg proof which is what you will see on an old bottle of UK spirits if you have one lying around. HTH

After my earlier comment saying I hadn't been able to find this deal after three days looking in 2 stores (one of which is pretty big) I'd like to update that! I've just got back from one more look and my local store now has a largish end of isle display with around 30 bottles (litres) at £16! (There was no sign saying max 2 per customer so there are now only around 26 left!) This display has gone up since the weekend.

So it's looking more like a genuine deal and may be worth the effort hunting for.

excellent deal, thank you

ergh

Called in to Morrison's at Redditch and, it must be Christmas, 'cos they had them in stock. Usually decent offers are sold out very quickly.
Bought two, one for a gift but I'm now going to keep both.

Got two today at £16 each. Great deal, haven't since a litre this cheap for years. Possibly best drink deal of Christmas

Bought one in Morrisons Swansea for £16 and the were loads there at 2pm today if that helps anyone!

Still going strong at Newlands Glasgow, must have had 50+ bottles out. Limit of 4 per customer so took the max at this price!

I see the 1Ltr bottle is £11 extra

Picked up two bottles today in Welwyn Garden at lunchtime. Thanks.

paid £16 today. heat added
