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.
A little alcohol on the nose. Sharp pine notes and aromatic baking spices. Definite notes of orange.
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.
