Top Billing explores Seville!

As part of our ongoing journey to the source of Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla’s zesty, new gin, Lorna, Blue and the crew head to Seville, home to the world’s most celebrated oranges!

An artistic blend of the new and the classic, the capital of Southern Spain’s Andalucia Province inspired this famous gin brand’s latest variant. Like the city, it’s a modern recipe with a heritage dating back centuries.

The city’s stunning streets are lined with orange trees, which were first planted by The Moors, former African rulers of Seville. When Charles Tanqueray visited the city in the eighteen sixties, the oranges inspired his new, unique gin liqueur.

Incredible spots on our checklist included The Plaza de España, which was built in the nineteen twenties and is so popular it’s become the most photographed space in the city and is the known as "the Venice of Seville".

The public space is defined by a ceramics tradition, first introduced from North Africa in The Middle Ages. The world famous ceramic tile design found here served as the inspiration for the Flor de Sevilla label, along with the Seville Orange Pantone colour.

The landmarks aren’t all historic however, and the country’s forward thinking is symbolised by the massive, modern sculpture- Las Setas, affectionately called ‘The Mushroom’. The modern wooden structure is a representation of Seville’s ability to modernise with the times, while still paying tribute to the original structures.

Keeping the ladies refreshed during the hot Spanish summer was the fragrance of those orange tree-lined streets, along with the delicious taste of Flor de Sevilla!
