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.
