Discover More About Our Products

The Boatyard Distillery is situated on the banks of Lough Erne, County Fermanagh, North West Ireland. Boatyard is Fermanagh's first legal distillery since 1890. Records suggest that the county town, Enniskillen, had two operational distilleries at the end of the 1800s. It is even thought there was a gin palace.

Old Tom is a style of gin that some say takes its name from an illicit method of dispensing gin in the 18th Century. A sign was erected outside Captain Bradstreet's premises in London carrying the image of a cat. Thirsty passersby would deposit their penny in a slot and receive a slug of gin from a lead pipe under the cat's paw in return.

Use to make a wicked martini or mix with ginger ale for a fiery and refreshing drink.

Description of Boatyard Old Tom Gin

Boatyard Old Tom Gin

TASTING NOTES: Boatyard Old Tom Gin is slightly sweeter with a more rounded mouthfeel than a London Dry Gin.

PRODUCER: Boatyard Distillery

COUNTRY: Northern Ireland

PRODUCTION DETAILS: Boatyard Old Tom is made using a gin base that has been distilled in a Copper Alembic Pot Still, called ‘Érainn'. The collected spirit rests in hand-picked first-fill Pedro Ximénez sherry casks where the natural sweetness and richness of the sherry absorbs into the gin. To finish the process a small amount of PX sherry is added to give the gin a velvety smooth mouthfeel.

4 /5

- Boatyard Old Tom Gin is the second product to be launched from The Boatyard Distillery and the first of its kind to be launched in Ireland.
- Notes of candied lemon peel, vanilla and cinnamon spice, with a silky orange finish. It is slightly sweeter than London Dry but drier than Dutch genever - thus sometimes referred to as 'the missing link'.
- Old Tom Gin was a gin recipe popular in the 18th Century, where the illegal, home-made, harsh gins of the time were sweetened with liquorice or sugar to make it more palatable to the masses. Some say takes its name from an illicit method of dispensing gin in the 18th Century.
