Description

Old Tom is a slightly sweetened gin and 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. This Old Tom has a light sweetness that seems to add body to this, and helps develop some of the juniper and orange flavours.
