Diageo Reserve’s super-premium gin, Tanqueray teamed up with minimalist fashion line, Clan to host Lagos socialites, celebrities and influencers to an immersive cosmopolitan experience tagged “Fashion Night Out: Clan X Tanqueray” in Victoria Island.

Charles Tanqueray was born in 1810 to a long line of English clergymen; father, grandfather and great uncle. Naturally, when it became time to pick a career, Tanqueray went with booze, founding a distillery with his brother in London in 1830.
While developing what would become his flagship recipe, Tanqueray stumbled upon his preferred method for distilling botanicals into a small quantity of neutral grain spirit before distilling the larger batch for the final time.
It was one of the first innovations in botanical infusion, central to the whole “how-is-this-delicious-gin-not-vodka?” question.
Tanqueray is a dry, crisp gin with a rich jumper flavor that makes the most refreshing tasting gin and tonics with the driest of martini cocktails.
