Country of origin: United Kingdom
It was first discovered and enjoyed over 200 years ago amongst the elite societies of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, the Austrian Empire and the Kingdom of Prussia. It was a drink that was cherished and drunk by the wealthy at their celebrations and grand balls.
The drink had a unique flavour and colour and was completely natural. Its ingredients were sourced from exotic locations and included the coveted Attar of Rose from the East that gave it its unique nose and taste. The drink remained a firm favourite all the way through to the roaring 1920s, but disappeared with the Second World War and the rise of Communism.
Following the fall of Communism and the reopening of Eastern Europe, curators began to unravel the fascinating history of this exclusive drink. After years of work by dedicated artisans the long lost recipe was reborn and Lanique was relaunched.
The latest chapter in the Lanique story began when the current owner of Lanique, Jersey entrepreneur Lawrence Huggler, purchased the drink. The bottle and label have been redesigned to reflect the rich history and quality of the drink and now, Huggler’s aim is to introduce as many people as possible to Lanique, to let them discover its uniqueness and amazing taste as he did ten years ago.
