Like it’s predecessors, our Old Tom is pot-distilled with 10 botanicals and is smoothly botanical and flavorful with a hint of sweetness.
In the beginning of the 19th Century Tom Chamberlain was the master distiller for Hodges Distillery. He was also known as “Old Tom” and gin shops and public houses advertised that they were selling “Old Tom”, the preferred gin of the time. During the 20th Century this flavorful, aromatic, “Old Tom” gin essentially disappeared. The good news is Probably Shouldn’t Distillery allows you to step back to the 19th Century and experience this handcrafted, small batch, gin. It is a step we know you are going to enjoy.
The nose of our gin is like going to a flower shop. The sweet spicy aromas of citrus, fruit, and wood might make you think the aroma of our gin is treat enough. But the real treat is in the taste. Licorice, herbs, a hint of cinnamon, and, of course, that piney taste of juniper berries, the essence of a classic gin, blended together in a subtle way that will make this gin your gin of choice. We probably shouldn’t say this, but Tom Chamberlain endorses our gin.
This gin makes a fantastic Martini, Gin and Tonic, Tom Collins or any other classic gin cocktail (see our Old Tom Gin post).
