Tanqueray Rangpur Gin 70cl
Delicious lime zestiness joins juicy mandarin orange flavours in this gin
Tanqueray Rangpur Gin
Since 2016 the original Tanqueray has been the bestselling gin in the world, and for good reason! It has great provenance, being first distilled in 1830 by Charles Tanqueray & co in the Bloomsbury area of London.
The rare Rangpur lime is an ingenious choice to bring a distinct and bold flavour to this variation of Tanqueray, their Rangpur edition. It has the zestiness of lime and the juiciness of mandarin orange, bringing a whole new citrus experience to the drinker.
First produced in 2006, this variation has won numerous awards for its interesting flavour profile. It has a fresh taste, which is alightly surprising with the main flavour being orange, and top notes of lime. These merge perfectly with background notes of liquorice, ginger and a hint of bay leaves.
Interesting fact.... the Rangpur lime is a hybrid cross of the Mandarin Orange, and the Citron (one of the original citrus fruits). It has orange flesh and peel, and a sour flavour (similar to lime).
We recommend a neutral tonic with this gin, so as not to overpower the delicious flavours of the Rangpur Lime. Pour 50ml of the gin into a large Copa Glass filled with ice. Add 150ml of Fentimans Premium Tonic Water, and stir gently. Garnish with a slice of lime.
