Greenhook Ginsmiths Old Tom Gin
|Region||United States, New York|
Greenhook Ginsmiths has released a masterful expression of Old Tom Gin. Paying homage to distillers of 18th century England, this Gin is pot distilled from 100% corn. It offers strong but delicate aromas of allspice, citrus, chamomile and coriander, while maintaining it's juniper-infused identity. Sitting at 100.1 proof, Old Tom is rounded off with a touch of sugar to temper the gin's fiery nature. Old Tom drinks fantastically in belly-warming fall and winter cocktails!
This history-minded bottling was made in collaboration with Brooklyn barmen Damon Boelte and Maxwell Britten. It's made from an 18th-century recipe, pot distilled using "exotic spices inspired by the British Spice Trade," and finally, aged for 12 months in Bourbon and oloroso Sherry casks. All that adds up to a light gold hue, light sweetness (typical of the Old Tom style) and a pleasing, robust vanilla-mint profile with flecks of rosemary and lemon peel, finishing long and spicy. Sip or mix.
