We have a fun new product! Hurrah!

We are excited to introduce Tanqueray Flor De Sevilla, a unique distilled gin made with Sevilla orange essence. If you like your gin with a citrusy zing, then this creative, delicious gin is for you.

In the 1860s Charles Tanqueray visited the orange groves of Spain and was inspired to create a gin recipe that maintained the bittersweet character of Sevilla oranges whilst still being inherently a TANQUERAY gin.

140 years later the talented folk at the Tanqueray Distillery realized his recipe. 143 years later it has arrived in the Cayman Islands. It was worth the wait.

As Tanqueray fans ourselves, we’ve been waiting impatiently for this product to cross the Atlantic, make it through our local customs, into our warehouse and finally into the wholesale office for us to taste here at Jacques Scott.

Here’s some thoughts from of our team of wayward wine experts, burly beer enthusiasts and seriously sassy spirits professionals:

I can totally imagine this with a freshly opened Fever Tree Indian tonic and a big wedge of orange. It’s like summer in a glass. – Jo Austin

It tasted like waiting 3 years was worth it! I can’t wait to put it in a martini with a splash of fino sherry. – Amba Lamb

I’m so excited that we now have this gin. This might be my new happy hour beverage! – Adam Slobodian 

After all, it’s what you put in.
