Two Birds Old Tom Gin, 70cl, ABV 40%Regular price £29.00
Old Tom Gin (or Tom Gin or Old Tom) is a gin recipe popular in 18th-century England. The name derives from the unusual Tom cat shaped plaque that hung outside the gin houses at the height of the Gin Craze.
Countryside Spirits Two Birds have refined the recipe but the gin still retains the slightly sweeter taste which made it so popular. The distillery, based in Market Harborough, produces in small batches of 100 bottles at a time.
We like to garnish it with the peel of lemon or lime and serve with a dash of premium tonic.
