Dear Rabbi Eidlitz

Thank you for your email.

The unflavoured Tanqueray Gin is produced by making use of vats which are sometimes also used for wine based products.  There is a problem of Kovush, but obviously it is Aino Ben Yomo.

Consequently, I would not say that the product is treif, but obviously we will not give a Hechsher to it.

Best regards
Dayan M D Elzas
