|Jensens - London Distilled, Old Tom Gin 70cl Bottle|
Following the success and critical acclaim for Jensen's London Dry Gin, and the recent revival of interest in older style gins, Christian has turned the clock back even further with his new Jensen's London-Distilled Old Tom Gin
Old Tom was an early nickname for gin, and nowadays it is generally understood to refer to the sweeter style of gin produced in the late 1800s and early 1900s - when sugar was added to gin to recreate the flavours of the original Old Tom gins of the late 18th and early 19th centuries
But Old Tom wasn't always artificially sweetened in this way
Jensen's Old Tom is a recreation of an original Old Tom recipe from the 1840s, when sugar was more expensive and impurities were usually hidden by the simple expedient of adding greater quantities of botanicals
Jensen's Old Tom is true to this style, producing an extraordinarily complex, intensely-flavoured gin, with long-lasting herbal spiced notes and a natural residual sweetness on the finish
Jensen's Old Tom Gin is an unmissable taste experience, and is perfect for classic gin cocktails like the Tom Collins or Martinez whose original recipes called for Old Tom.
