Tanqueray Malacca Gin

Did You KNOW?

Tanqueray Malacca is a Sweet Treat When Its Around: Tanqueray London Dry Gin and Tanqueray Malacca Gin: Sweet Treats


Tanqueray Malacca is a Sweet Treat When Its Around:

Tanqueray was ahead of the curve of the new gin movement.
 In 1997, they released what was perhaps the most revolutionary gin to come out of a major English distillery to date. Malacca, based on a recipe by Charles Tanqueray from the grand old year 1839, was a revelation to many in the burgeoning cocktail scene.

A softer, citrus-forward gin, uniquely suited for mixing in the new wave of drinks created by barmen across the country, Malacca instantly developed cult status. Unfortunately for its newfound following, Malacca was taken off shelves in 2001.

Relaunched in early 2013, Tanqueray Malacca is a sweeter gin with less juniper emphasis and more citrus than the classic style. Originally introduced in the late 1990s, Malacca was discontinued after a short lifespan but has been resurrected after gradually assuming cult status among cocktail revivalist bartenders as a good substitute for the original Old Tom styles of gin.

Many years later, the whispers you've heard are true: Malacca is back on the shelves, albeit in limited quantities. 100,000 bottles of the sauce were released.

SO WHAT DOES MALACCA GIN TASTE LIKE?
According to some, sampling the newly-reissued gin neat, grapefruit takes the lead, wrapped in a distinctly floral scent. The gin is soft and round, with prominent cinnamon and bubblegum flavors. It finishes clean and easy, almost leaving you wondering if you were drinking booze or rosewater.
