Country of Origin:  UK

About:  Old Tom Gin is the last remaining example of the original lightly sweetened gins that were so popular in 18th and 19th century England. The name comes from what may be the first example of a beverage vending machine. In the 1700's some pubs in England would have a wooden plaque shaped like a black cat (An Old Tom) mounted on the outside wall. Thirsty passersby would deposit a penny in the cat's mouth and place their lips around a small tube between the cat's paws. The bartender inside would then pour a shot of gin through the tube and into the customer's waiting mouth. Until fairly recently limited quantities of Old Tom-Style Gin were still being made by a few British Distillers but they were at best curiosity items. Haymans Old Tom Gin is an exception.

Tasting Notes:  Following the 18th century tradition Haymans Old Tom Gin is a botanically-intensive and lightly sweetened style of gin distilled from 100% grain. In comparison to London Dry Gin The Old Tom style delivers a more rounded taste experience with depth. The distinctive Old Tom Gin profile is the key ingredient in classic gin cocktails such as a Tom Collins and a Gin Fizz.
