Abelforth's Bathtub Gin - Old Tom Description
Recreating a traditional style of gin that was popular in 18th/19th Century England, Old Tom is a slightly sweetened gin that is perfect in sweet gin cocktails and makes a tasty G&T.The nose is sweet and fruity with prominent botanical notes and a citrus element. The palate has a light sweetness with developing juniper and orange. The finish is clean with just a touch of pepper.

Old Tom takes its name from a forgotten dispensing method in Victorian London's gin houses. A tom cat shaped plaque would be hung outside where passing customers could drop a coin into the cat's mouth for a shot of gin to be poured from a tube under the animal's paw.
