Jensen's Old Tom GinJensen's Old Tom Gin

This Old Tom recipe was taken from a distiller's handbook from the 1840's. It is a true Old Tom gin, similar to those used by the bartenders of the mid-to-late 1800's. Unsweetened and earthy, it has a deep flavour that adds complexity to many drinks. Classic gin botanicals only, with a focus on the roots and spices. The botanicals are added to the still, dried and then steeped to release their flavour. On the nose there is a huge root hit, ample musk and spice. Apparent sweetness on nose yet the palette is dry. Concentrated flavour tightly wound, however it opens up hugely when mixed with tonic.
