Old Tom Gin is a sweeter and lighter version of the most popular and widespread London Dry Gin. See our range of Old Toms handcrafted by The House of Botanicals.
Old Tom style was named after Thomas Chamberlain, the distiller, and it was a very popular beverage in England back in the 1800s. For some time, Old Top has lost its popularity and the London Dry style became dominant.
Old Tom Gin is not overwhelmed with juniper influence and usually has a lower level of alcohol. To make the Old Tom Gin sweet and tasty, producers may add naturally sweet botanicals or sugars, such as muscovado sugar, refined cane sugar, maple syrup, etc. There’s as much variation in how Old Tom gin is made now, from sugar levels to the ageing process.
Old Tom Gin workes great in all ranges of cocktails, for example, Martinez, Old Fashioned, Tom Collins.
Now Old Tom is back in fashion and comes in all colours and flavours. Check out our choice of Old Tom Gins and choose your favourite!
