Tanqueray has introduced a gin crafted from Seville oranges.

Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla – the new blend made with Seville oranges – pays homage to Tanqueray’s roots, according to the company, because founder Charles Tanqueray used the fruit in his original 1830s recipes.

The flavour profile is described as being “sweet and tangy with tangerine notes and hints of juniper and coriander”.

Anita Robinson, Europe category director for gin said: Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla is something really new for the world of gin and reflects our love of innovating with flavour. We have matched the quality of 200 years of Tanqueray heritage with a fresh new flavour that captures the spirit of Seville in a perfectly balanced gin.”

The producer said perfect serves include a gin & tonic garnished with a wedge of fresh orange, as well as other experimental drinks such as the Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla Negroni, made with red herbal liqueur and sweet vermouth, garnished with a slice of orange.

Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla has an abv of 41.3% and it will retail at £25 in the off-trade.
