Tanqueray presents the latest addition to its offering: Tanqueray Blackcurrant Royale. This new variant – distilled from the finest French blackcurrants and vanilla – can now be enjoyed by gin enthusiasts the world over and of course, Mzansi. The taste is underpinned by four classic botanicals – piney juniper, peppery coriander, aromatic angelica, and sweet liquorice; with hints of black orchard. Whether you say Ooh la la or Nom nom nom in true South African style, this delectable new drink is made to please varying palates!
“We are thrilled to be bringing this flavour to our shores – we are confident that it is balanced whilst appealing to the sweeter palate of gin lovers in Mzansi. Thanks to its taste, aspirational appeal, and versatility, gin remains to be one of the most popular alcoholic categories in South Africa. This inspires us to remain innovative, keeping up with this demand!” says Refilwe Bosii – Innovation Manager for Tanqueray, Diageo South Africa.
The botanicals used to make Tanqueray Blackcurrant Royale provide it with a complex fruity and floral nose, with the juicy ripe blackcurrant and subtle sweetness of vanilla and a floral finish rounding the flavour profile off nicely.
Bosii adds, “Tanqueray Blackcurrant Royale helps expand the number of choices for flavoured gin local aficionados and fans have available to them. We know that South Africans are looking for something differentiated, and this latest blackcurrant offering is sure to stand out in the market, becoming a perfect option for those moments when you want to drink something a bit special.
