Old Tom 6 Gin
Our multi award-winning Old Tom 6 contains six carefully chosen botanicals: juniper, coriander seed, lemon peel, angelica root and orris root, with a subtle sting of Scotch bonnet in its tail to give it a unique award-winning character. The gentle warmth of chilli lingers on the palate just long enough to enhance the intriguing blend of botanicals, opening up the complexity of this gin.
Dating back to 18th century England, Old Tom gin is characterised as sweeter than London Dry gin, slightly drier than Dutch Genever and lighter on the juniper. Although Old Tom gin fell out of fashion in the modern age, it has experienced a revival, taking a central role in the craft cocktail movement.
Often referred to as the 'missing link' in the cocktail world, our Old Tom is as perfect in classic and contemporary cocktails as it is sipped neat.
Recognising the ethos of our brand and the excellence of the unique gin, Old Tom 6 has been awarded the top accolades:
- The Masters - Spirits Awards 2021
- Silver - International Wine & Spirits Competition 2022
- Bronze - World Gin Awards 2022
Why is it called Old Tom 6?
The 6 is because it has six carefully chosen botanicals and we live in Catford SE6 which is home to a large fibreglass cat that we lovingly refer to as 'Old Tom'.
