PREPARATION: It is impossible to describe Old Tom gin without history. Let's start by saying that actually the old Tom is not a brand, but a kind of gin. Gender old Tom, of course, consisting nell'edulcorare the distillate from juniper, with a sweet substance such as sugar or, as in the case of old Tom HERNO, honey. In practice, in addition to traditional botanicals, which is added after distillation of honey flavor soavizza. This liqueur has had its peak in the late 1800s and then fell almost into oblivion. Resurrected to a new life now, through HERNO distillery, which brings not only the recipe, but also the unmistakable stamp, of which the figure of the cat is the logo. But parquet a cat? The origins fade over time. What is said is that already in 1736 in the sign hanging outside the house of a distiller, possibly illegal, appeared in the form of a black cat was named Tom. Under paw was a slit in which a coin is placed and from a side tube connected to a funnel inside the house, the distiller poured gin. Since Old Tom gin stand.

4 /5

- The name Old Tom Gin came from wooden plaques shaped like a black cat (an «Old Tom») mounted on the outside wall of some pubs above a public walkway in 18th-century England. Owing to the Gin Craze, the British government tried to stem the flow of gin with prohibitive taxes and licensing, which drove the scene underground. Under the cat's paw sign was a slot to put money in and a lead tube. From the tube would come a shot of gin, poured by the bartender inside the pub.
- Juniper berries, coriander and cardamom sourced from a nature reserve in Uzbekistan, Central Asia. Fairtrade sugar added to the gin before ageing is sourced in Central or South America. The other spices are sourced in France, 30km from the micro-distillery.
- Ingredients: Juniper, Coriander, Cardamom, Grains of paradise, Calamus roots, Angelica roots, Brown cane suagr.
- Style: Light gold.
- Nose: Fresh smoothness marked by scents of liquorice, with a hint of vanilla sugar.
- Palate: Extremely easy to enjoy, its freshness and acidity don't over look lemon balm and juniper aromas.
- Finish: Sweet finish accented with lingering touches of pepper and cinnamon.
