Gin lovers, get excited because Tanqueray has just launched a brand new tipple...

Its new Tanqueray Blackcurrant Royale is described as a decadent mix of French blackcurrants with notes of vanilla, and we reckon it'll help you whip up some very tasty winter cocktails during this cold snap.

Inspired by founder Charles Tanqueray's travels to France in the 1840s, it's the latest addition to the brand's flavoured gin range, joining Flor de Sevilla and Rangpur Lime.

The new gin blends the botanicals of Tanqueray London Dry Gin with juicy blackcurrants from France, warm vanilla and the exotic floral notes of black orchid for a rich flavour. Sounds pretty delicious to us!

You can mix it into a variety of cocktails, serve it with simple tonic for a refreshing finish or pair it with prosecco for an even more luxurious serve.

Chatting about the new tipple, Janine Blakeway-Ely, Tanqueray's Head of Europe Gin Innovation, said in a release: "The idea behind Tanqueray Blackcurrant Royale was born from combining the elegant world of Tanqueray with a unique and differentiated offering.

"We know gin lovers are looking for more than just flavour, so we delved into Charles Tanqueray’s history. Inspired by Tanqueray’s heritage and travels we layered sumptuous and mysterious flavours to create this delicious gin, best served with tonic or in a coupette with prosecco. It’s a gin like no other.”

The new Tanqueray Blackcurrant Royale (70cl) is available to buy now on Amazon for £24, and will be launching in selected supermarkets, including Waitrose and Asda, from 17 February (RRP: £25).
