This softly spiced version of Tanqueray gin was originally developed in 1839 for the Far East and is named after the Straits of Malacca, a narrow waterway separating the Malaysia Peninsula and the Indonesian island of Sumatra, in turn named after the area’s 15th century ruler, the Malacca Sultanate.

Tanqueray Malacca was made available for a brief period in the late noughties (1997-2001) and then re-released as a limited edition in February 2012 with a run of 100,000 individually numbered bottles. Both of the modern Malacca revivals are said to be made to the original 1839 recipe which apparently consists of simple additions to Tanqueray’s classic four botanicals.
