The classic originating from the mid 1800s delivers a sweeter and more peppery taste in comparison with their Dry Gin. From the botanicals alone they nurture its sweet taste, while their oak casks continue to add flavour and colour. The inclusions of rose petals infuses a distinct character to the sweetness as well as a slight rose gold tinge.
The sweet notes of their Old Tom Gin thrive in more subtle cocktail recipes. Ingredients like lavender and rose give it good balance whereas bolder ingredients such as anise, juniper and clove could mask its delicate flavours and are best used sparingly.
