Old Tom Gin (70cl, 48%)
This month’s featured gin is Old Tom Gin, coming to us from Sacred Distillery! Founded in 2008, Sacred is the first vacuum distillery in the world. Now exported to over 10 countries, their hand crafted gins are still made at this small and mighty London distillery. Compared with traditional pot distillation, vacuum distillation provides a way to preserve the richness of flavour and aromas of botanicals, making for a truly exceptional, flavourful gin.
Old Tom Gins were very popular in the 18th and 19th centuries when gins were in need of natural sweetening as the base spirit was very pungent due to limited purification. The name is now linked to a particular style of gin that outdates London Dry. Old Tom Gin’s hallmarks are a distinct flavour often of lemon/aniseed/liquorice.
Result & Perfect Serve
For Sacred’s Old Tom Gin, you’ll enjoy natural sweetness from liquorice root, combined with bold juniper notes and a burst of freshness from vacuum distilled Spanish and Italian oranges. But don’t let the sweetness fool you – this gin packs quite a punch, coming in at 48% ABV!
Don’t forget to keep an eye on our website and social channels throughout the month to see our great range of gin cocktails.
