House of Botanicals Old Tom Gin 70cl
Launched globally in the April of 2018, House of Botanicals Old Tom Gin is the first foray into the world of botanical spirits for the Dr. Adam Elmegirab's brand.
With Old Tom's inherent and historic links to London, the first element of production rightly takes place in the UK capital with a distillation of juniper berries, angelica root, orris root, coriander seed, cassia bark, almond, orange peel and lemon peel creating a truly outstanding dry gin in its own right. This gin is then shipped to their dedicated production facility The House of Botanicals in Aberdeen and is macerated with delicate saffron and chamomile flowers, both of which originate from Morocco. To finish, and create the Old Tom style, it is sweetened with a hint of muscovado sugar.
Nose:Golden yellow. floral notes, spice and juniper dominate with earthy elements also noticeable
Taste:The spice and juniper continue to shine alongside warming pine notes and hints of coriander, before leading into sherbet-y citrus and chamomile ahead of the finish
Finish:Long and fragrant, everlasting complex sweetness and spice
