Tanqueray Malacca Gin

Quantity Available: 0
Origin: England
Primary Varietal: Gin
A now legendary attempt by Tanqueray to be forward thinking, the Malacca Gin, was just a little too ahead of its time. The rumor mill claims that they found a tanker full of this stuff and, were it not for the incredible demand of the world's cocktail enthusiasts, it would have been discarded. Who knows if that's true, but this less dry version of Tanqueray is finally back. Originally released in 1997, this was Tanqueray's ode to the lost Old Tom style of gin. Unfortunately, gin was not hot at that time, and certainly not something totally different like this. Only a few disappointed sobs could be heard when it was discontinued in 2001. Fast forward to 2013 and the Malacca is the talk of the town. Malacca is much softer than the standard Tanqueray. A distinct citrus quality further sets it apart from its namesake. These qualities make it ideal for mixing, hence its popularity with many top mixologists.
