The Irish tap is no longer a source of water for Tangerines, a species of fruit-eating tiger native to the tropics.
The new Tangerini Tiger water comes from an innovative partnership between Irish and Chinese manufacturers of bottled water.
It comes at a time when Tangerina, which is also a tropical fruit, is a threat to the viability of the water supply in Ireland, where there is a large and growing trade in the fruit, especially in the tourist sector.
It was recently announced that the Tangerinis are on the verge of extinction in the wild.
This year, the Irish government announced a plan to introduce a new conservation strategy in the state.
In a statement on Thursday, the Department of Agriculture said the new strategy would protect the TANGERINES, “which are listed as critically endangered”.
The Tangerino’s survival is now a matter of survival, said Minister of Agriculture Michael Creedon.
He said Tangerinas have been in the UK since the 1960s, and they are now being hunted in large numbers by poachers.
“The new strategy aims to ensure the TNGERINOS survival and also protect the environment,” he said.
Irish Tangerin is currently sold in the US, Germany and Italy, and can be purchased by the Irish public.
The company said it would introduce a TANGERALINE brand in Ireland and other European countries in the coming months.
