Malacca gin making a brief return

Gin lovers who may be nostalgic for a special product from the '90s will be glad to hear Tanqueray is bringing back its Malacca gin.

Malacca was introduced in 1997, but ceased production in 2001. That was to the disappointment of some leading cocktail experts, who liked the fact the lower-alcohol product was softer and with fewer juniper nuances than the popular London Dry style and, thus, was more versatile in mixed drinks.

The return of Malacca in February is for "a limited run" will carry a suggested retail price of $33 for the 750ml bottle.

By way of explanation "limited run," the company has created just 16,000 cases for the U.S. UK and Western Europe markets.
