Originally released in 1997 as a lighter, easier style companion to the iconic Tanqueray London Dry Gin, Tanqueray Malacca Gin was pulled from the market around 2001. Relaunched in 2013 by popular demand, it is a sweeter gin with less juniper emphasis and more citrus than the classic style. It has been resurrected after gradually assuming cult status among cocktail revivalist bartenders as a good substitute for the original Old Tom styles of gin. It is a sweet, spicy gin with increased levels of citrus.
Distilled in Cameron Bridge, Fife, Scotland.
