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.
