Tanqueray Malacca 1000ml
Based on a recipe by Charles Tanqueray and originally developed in 1839 for the Far East this latest Tanqueray release was discontinued after a short lifespan, only to be relaunched in early 2013. Named after the Straits of Malacca, a narrow waterway separating the Malaysia Peninsula and the Indonesian island of Sumatra, it's a sweeter styled gin with less juniper emphasis and more citrus than the classic Tanq style. Reportedly, it's already achieved cult status among cocktail revivalists in the UK where it was a revelation to many in the burgeoning cocktail scene. It works as a substitute for the original Old Tom gin style. Be quick, word has it only 100,000 bottles will make it to market - then it's all over. Again.
