Brilliant Old Tom gin from Christian Jensen. This was made to a recipe from the 1840s, and is naturally sweetened with larger quantities of botanicals than the original Jensen's London Gin.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Tim F

    N:  More intense than the Jensen's Dry, and again the juniper is very prominent, this time accompanied by grapefruit notes, lavender, coriander and a very pleasant meadowy character.  Becomes more floral with time, with hints of orange flower water.

    P:  Extremely concentrated blend of the botanical aromas from the nose: juniper,liquorice, some citrus.  Strong violet and lavender mid-palate.  A slightly cereally background with sage and a natural residual sweetness.

    F:  Long and powerful with the citrus, juniper, liquorice and floral notes all lingering.  A slightly menthol quality.

    C:  More challenging than the Dry due to the powerful, uncompromising flavours.  Perhaps less approachable neat for this reason, but this Old Tom will be a knockout in the right cocktails.

    Try this in a Tom Collins since this is, clearly, what goes in a Tom Collins! The flavours add much more depth!

    I tried this last night in "The Hide" on Bermondsey St. It is superb, I am ordering a bottle now.

    Sorry Guys - I am going to beat the drum again for this excellent product. It makes an amazing 'earthy' and stimulating gin and tonic - say farewell to 'blandness' and buy a bottle

    Magical - as the tasting notes say 'too much' - for me at least - to drink neat but it makes an highly individual G and T
