Diageo is to bring back Tanqueray Malacca gin.
The company first launched the gin in the early 2000s as a limited edition, and it is set to roll out a limited run of 100,000 bottles from February.
It is a blend of botanicals and spices and it stems from Charles Tanqueray's 1839 recipe, which was found in a travel journal documenting journeys from Europe to the East Indies.
Tanqueray master distiller Tom Nichol said: "Since announcing the return of Tanqueray Malacca we've witnessed real excitement among bartenders who are keen to get their hands on this unique limited edition gin. I've been asked many times over the years for this gin to be brought back by Tanqueray and I'm pleased to now be making that happen."
The official launch events hosted by Tom Nichol will take place in February in New York, San Francisco and London at secret locations.
Tanqueray Malacca will be available for sale in the US, Spain, Germany, UK, Benelux, the Nordics and Western Europe. Each of the 100,000 bottles will be individually numbered.
