A classic Old Tom gin from Christian Jensen, made from a recipe taken from a distiller's handbook dating back to the 1840s. It doesn’t contain any sugar, but is simply naturally sweetened using a larger number of botanicals than seen in Jensen's Bermondsey Gin. A modern revival of a truly traditional tipple.
Nose: Spicy and intense nose. Plenty of juniper, cut herbs, rosemary, a little coriander. Blossom.
Palate: Floral palate with cereals, lavender, hints of apple blossom and aniseed. Big, spicy juniper.
Finish: Spiced. Citrus zest and aniseed.
