The collaboration was revealed in a live stream from a new virtual bar, called ‘Tucci and No. Ten: Open for Orders’, where Tucci and a team of bartenders crafted a Tanqueray cocktail together, before shipping the concoction to 100 fans.
“I’m a big fan of a great-tasting cocktail, using the expertise of the amazing bartenders across the world, and bringing that to life in your own living room,” Tucci said. “I can’t wait to show how people can experience the finest cocktails when they take a fresh approach to their gin choice with Tanqueray No. Ten.”
Tucci received an impressive reaction from Instagram audiences over lockdown, after posting a number of behind-the-scenes cocktail-making videos filmed at home. The serves he created for fans included a Rob Roy, Old Fashioned, Negroni and Scotch Sour – as well as many others.
Tucci’s signature cocktail is a Grapefruit Martini, which combines Tanqueray No. Ten, pink grapefruit juice and honey.

“It makes perfect sense,” said Pedro Mendonca, managing director for Diageo’s global reserve portfolio.
“A globally iconic gin like Tanqueray No. Ten, partnering with Hollywood’s favourite aspiring bartender and Martini connoisseur bring a fresh and elevated approach to the gin cocktail experience.”
In celebration of the partnership, Tanqueray No. Ten is supporting the wider hospitality industry with a pledge to The Drinks Trust to help those struggling in the sector.
