In 1835, distiller Charles Tanqueray created an Old Tom style of gin. Almost 180 years later, Tanqueray master distiller Tom Nichol has drawn inspiration from Charles’ original recipe to craft this Old Tom Gin.
Only 100'000 bottles worldwide available, each one is individually numbered.
In the history of gin, the Old Tom style bridges the flavour gap between the original, malty Dutch genevers and the more juniper-forward London Dry styles. Lighter than a genever but more full-bodied and sweeter than a London Dry, versatile Old Tom gins were also an essential spirit during the first Golden Age of the cocktail.
Tom Nichol says: “It’s an honour to be privy to Charles Tanqueray’s recipe book and to bring back a great gin which reflects the classic Old Tom style but is elevated further by new distilling techniques.”
