Tanqueray Rangpur Gin unveils the best kept secret of the British-Indian tradition. The rare Rangpur lime, traditionally used to smooth down the gin, brings an exotic bold flavour. This adds to the already perfect combination of juniper, coriander, bay leaves and ginger. The Rangpur lime is not actually a lime rather it is an orange hybrid of a lemon and a mandarin.
This Gin takes its name from the Rangpur lime, a unique fruit of the native Indian Rangpur tree. It’s a fruit that blends the zest of lime and the juiciness of a Mandarin orange. Distilling the Rangpur lime with other botanicals – including bay leaf, ginger and, of course, juniper – gives Tanqueray Rangpur Gin a subtle, yet memorably zesty citrus twist that makes it ideal for a classic martini, a highball, or an invigorating short on the rocks. Since its 2006 launch, Rangpur Gin has won gold, double gold and platinum awards at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
Tanqueray’s iconic bottle design is a contemporary update of the original 1948 design. This was, in turn, inspired by the shape of a classic cocktail shaker. The famous Tanqueray family crest embossed on the glass of each bottle features a pineapple, a historic symbol of hospitality and warm welcome.
