What is an Old Tom Gin?
An Old Tom gin is subtlety sweeter than a London Dry and is slightly drier than Dutch Genever, It's often referred to as the 'missing link' in the cocktail world.
The name purportedly comes from wooden plaques shaped like a black cat (an Old Tom) mounted on the outside wall of some pubs above a public walkway in 18th-century England. Under the cat's paw sign was a slot to put money in and a lead tube. From the tube would come a shot of gin, poured by the bartender inside the pub. This was due to the government trying to stem the flow of gin with prohibitive taxes and licensing.
