"Old Tom, rarely available, is subtlety sweeter than a London Dry and is slightly drier than Dutch Genever. It's often referred to as the 'missing link' in the cocktail world and is perfect for tipples that are both classic and contemporary.
The botanical profile is classic and is often the foundation for many London Dry gins which gives it a recognisable aroma. The earthier botanicals are lifted by the inclusion of a moderate amount of citrus. The Scot bonnet amplifies the warming finish."
Awards: Gin Masters (2021).
