    Product Description

    Ableforth's has recreated here a traditional style of gin that was very popular in 18th and 19th century England. Old Tom is a slightly sweetened gin, created following a request from The Handmade Cocktail Company, which needed a tasty Old Tom gin for use in their Martinez cocktail.

    Old Tom got its name from an unusual dispensing method used by London gin houses. A tom cat-shaped plaque would be hung outside where passers-by could drop a coin in the animal’s mouth. The proprietor would then dispense a shot of gin from a tube under the cat’s paws.

    This almost-forgotten style of gin is perfect in sweet gin cocktails – it’s how the classic Tom Collins got its name – and makes a tasty G&T.

    Tasting Notes
    Nose: This is fruity and sweet on the nose with pronounced botanical notes. There is a good citrus element to it too.
    Palate: The light sweetness seems to add body to this, and helps develop some of the juniper and orange flavours.
    Finish: Clean with a touch of pepper.
    Overall: A great gin that not only makes a great G&T (the additional body works wonders) but will make a fantastic martinez... in fact it's the obvious ingredient for any classic gin cocktail that requires a hint of sweetness.
