Customer Rating

A delectable Old Tom gin from bitters wizard Dr Adam Elmegirab. The creation of this gin starts in London, where the base London Dry gin is made. This spirit is then shipped to Aberdeen where it is macerated with Moroccan saffron and chamomile, giving it a distinctive golden hue, before muscovado sugar is added to create the distinctive Old Tom style.

This is a deliciously floral, sweet gin that pays carefully-researched homage to the traditional Old Tom style.

  • Tasting notes from the producer

    • 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.

    I love the smoothness of this Old Tom Gin and wow such a kick. Get some ginger ale and warm up on these cold nights.

    Absolute beezer. Used to tell my pals I hated gin but this changed it for me.

    Sensational. The muscovado sweetness is perfect with the floral and juniper flavours. New favourite
