Old Tom Gin

Old Tom Gin

London Gin

43.3% ABV

An older style of gin pre-dating London Dry, Old Tom was born as a response to poor-quality alcohol being produced in people’s own homes in London. Sugar and strongly spiced botanicals were added to make it more palatable and to hide the flavour of impurities in the spirit.

Palate

Well balanced, a subtle sweetness accompanies the orange and cassia notes. Very little ethanol considering its ABV. The citrus leans more toward bright lemon on the palate.

Finish

The soft sweetness contuses with rounded orange and spice notes.
