Old Tom

The classification 'Old Tom' dates back to the gin craze of the 18th century where a plaque of a black cat was mounted on an outside wall. Passers by could throw a coin into the mouth of the cat and the barman would pour you a shot of gin.

Old Tom gins are sweeter than the now normal London Dry style and not many are still being produced. We have tracked down a shortlist of the best ones for you to enjoy:
