Something different here from Tanqueray. This gin is flavoured with Rangpur limes, also known as a mandarin orange. These highly acidic fruits, actually orange in colour, impart a fresh, zesty zing to this refreshing gin. Roll on summer!
Nose: Lots of zest on the nose, fresh citrus peel and just-cut botanicals.
Palate: Not as sharp and citric as the nose suggests, instead offering a pleasantly balanced gin flavour that's instantly recognisable as Tanqueray.
Finish: Smooth yet dry and lemony.
Overall: In a word, refreshing! The perfect gin for a G&T on the lawn.
I'll take this over the Ten
One of the best
Genuinely different and delicious
I own a large array of gins. I know sometimes Diageo gets a bad rap, but I think Rangpur is a lovely, versatile gin. I love a G&T and could drink this all day and night

Served in a gin bar in Palma about a year ago and hooked ever since. Genuinely different gin but with all the gin credentials. Delicious and for a change less than £30!

I love Gin, but my special purchases usually go on Single Malts, so I only tend to drink the more widely available Gins others buy with the exception of a few artisan Gins I've had in top bars.
Of all the Gin I've tried this and Hendricks are my favourites.
I'll take this over the "Ten" any day of the week, especially considering the price difference. Drink it neat if you like but a strong G&T is my favourite way to take it. To me this has an interesting and unique taste and I would struggle to choose between this and Hendricks as my number 1.

This gin has been amongst my favourite Gin's for some time now. It's elegant, yet tastefull. It has a superb freshness to it- dry, suttle spices, fresh lime peel and hints of citric acid. It is easily drinkable; make your faavorite Gin fiz or G&T and chill out in the sun. I think this one i more interesting that the "Ten" and more elegant than the traditional Tangeray.
