I’m currently working my way through my second bottle of Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla orange gin, and I can see myself buying a third really quite soon. I think this has become one of my favourite gins.
I first bought a bottle of Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla when it was on offer in Asda for £20 and I thought I’d give it a try. What an excellent move that was! At normal price, it’s usually around £25 and I think that this is still an absolute bargain.
If you like citrus gins then you are in for a treat with this gin. You can smell the orange as soon as you pull out the bottle stopper and it’s perfectly balanced with the juniper. Flavoured gins can sometimes be a bit hit and miss, but Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla is most definitely a hit.
I drank this as a long G&T, mixed with Fentimans orange tonic and garnished with a slice of the biggest, juiciest orange I could find. If you think that sounds a bit like too much orange, just trust me and try it. It is like the best orangeade, but one that makes your head spin a bit when you have too much!
If the weather wasn’t already beautiful, this gin could make you think it was the middle of summer.
When I drank it
This was perfect in the late afternoon on a sunny day. It’s equally as delicious on a cold, rainy evening
What I used as a garnish
A slice of the best oranges that I could get my hands on. Seville oranges would be beautiful
Is it worth the money?
Absolutely. It may not be a craft gin, but it will make a staple gin of any collection. It’s affordable and it’s beautiful. You will not stop at one bottle of this.
