Launched to the world in the April of 2018, House of Botanicals Old Tom Gin is the first foray into the world of botanical spirits for Dr Adam Elmegirab's brand. Distilled partly in London, to produce authentic London dry gin, it's then shipped to Aberdeen, where the addition of sugar, chamomile and saffron turns it into the Old Tom Gin. The colour comes from the brown sugar used in the production - keeping the taste as close as possible to the traditional old tom gin.
Golden yellow. Floral notes, spice and juniper dominate, with earthy elements also noticeable.
The spice and juniper continue to shine alongside warming pine notes and hints of coriander before leading into sherbety citrus and chamomile ahead of the finish.
Long and fragrant, everlasting complex sweetness and spice.
