Ableforth's Bathtub Gin Old Tom 50cl
A delicious contemporary Old Tom gin from Ableforths
Ableforth's Bathtub Gin Old Tom
Since their founding in 2011, Ableforth's have been making drinks that the founders (three friends) would enjoy themselves. They took inspiration from the past, looking at drinks which had robust, fresh - yet unusual flavours. In fact, they just wanted to ensure a "range of really bloody tasty spirits'.
For those who enjoy their gin a little sweeter, Ableforth's have created their Old Tom gin. This is a contemporary version of the style of Old Tom gin which was popular in the UK in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Made using their classic Bathtub Gin, Ableforths have created a gin with a full-bodied sweetness. This is balanced perfectly with the piney juniper and spice notes.
On the nose this has a sweet juniper aroma, joined with citrus notes. On the palate the sweetness comes through stronger, and has hints of liquorice, a gently juniper flavour and even a tast of orange tic-tacs. The finish keeps the sweetness through to the end.

This works well in the mix, and we particularly like this in a Martinez cocktail. However it also works well when mixed with a ginger ale or tonic water. Fentimans works well with both of these options. Take a large glass filled with ice and add 50ml of the gin. Gently pour over 150ml of your chosen mixer, and garnish with a slice of orange.
AMAZINGSo far the best gin i ever tasted. Best balance .
