South Africa’s much-loved gin brand Tanqueray celebrates World Gin Month by inviting you to an experience set to elevate your taste with sun-kissed Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla and transform chilly winter occasions and spaces into warm, orange-scented oases of delight.

The World Gin Day celebrations kicked off with a sundowner picnic featuring some of Mzansi’s most celebrated stars; Blue Mbombo, Tino Chinyani, Abigail Visagie, Themba Gwejela and Nasiphi Ngcwabe. The friends of Tanqueray took over the magnificent Cradle Boutique Hotel and turned it into the perfect backdrop for that sun-kissed picnic moment. They created the perfect template of how to enjoy a sun-soaked intimate outdoor experience accompanied by the indulgent taste of the bittersweet oranges courtesy of Tanqueray Flor De Sevilla.

“Tanqueray wishes to spread more cheer and enjoyment by inviting you to savour Tanqueray Flor De Sevilla goodness while celebrating World Gin Day responsibly. While the pandemic has slowed down social occasions, we have seen consumers move into more intimate settings with small groups of family and friends, and it was important for us as a brand to elevate that occasion for them through our picnic basket giveaways and fabulous cocktail recipes,’ said Tanqueray Brand Manager, Nontando Khubisa.

Whether one is playing around with Spanish inspired tapas, experimenting with flavours, or just looking to enjoy the traditional Tanqueray Flor De Sevilla and Tonic, under the African sunset, there definitely is a cocktail for everyone this World Gin Month.

“In celebration of World Gin Month, Tanqueray has created the perfect cocktails for those sun kissed occasions, we know our consumers have been enjoying. Whether their sunset is about enjoying a game drive, a picnic in their garden or post a hike at a picturesque resort, we have created simple and Spanish inspired cocktails to enable them to enjoy as they celebrate this World Gin Month with us,” concluded Reginald Mthembu, Diageo Brand Ambassador.

From the classic Flor De Sevilla and Tonic, much loved Negroni, zesty Seville Spritzer to the bubbly Sevilla Fizz, these cocktails recipes have been developed to enable local consumers to still enjoy the taste of summer the unmistakably Tanqueray way.
