    A Victorian-inspired gin

    Ableforth's has been at it again, this time recreating a traditional style of gin that was very popular in 18th and 19th century England. Old Tom is a slightly sweetened gin, created following a request from The Handmade Cocktail Company, which needed a tasty Old Tom gin for use in their Martinez cocktail.

    Old Tom got its name from an unusual dispensing method used by London gin houses.

    A tom cat-shaped plaque would be hung outside where passers-by could drop a coin in the animal’s mouth. The proprietor would then dispense a shot of gin from a tube under the cat’s paws.

    This almost-forgotten style of gin is perfect in sweet gin cocktails – it’s how the classic Tom Collins got its name – and makes a tasty G&T.

    made from:

    Gin in a bottle, wrapped in crinkled brown paper, wound with twine and sealed with black wax.


    H21cm x L40cm x W12cm, approx. 1.1kg when boxed
