Jensen’s Old Tom Gin (700ml)


2 in stock



A recreation of the Gin style first shipped to America, this isn’t sweet like most modern Old Toms, but dry and earthy with an accent on root botanicals. In fact it meets the EU requirements for London Dry Gin. Jensen’s Brand ambassador, Hannah Lanfear (also one of planet Earth’s more talented bartenders) recommends it for robust cocktails like the Negroni or for a prototypical Martinez.
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.
Tasting note: Clear. Light to moderate aromas of mineral, white pepper and orris root (?) Low key juniper and citrus peel. A very pure, soft-textured style with a delicate earthy / peppery edge. Very subtle flavours hint at juniper, coriander and parsnip through the creamy finish. Ends dry, fresh, warming, perfectly balanced. Quite dry for the genre. 43% Alc./Vol.
