Campfire Old Tom Gin
From: Puddingstone Distillery
In considering how an 18th centuryrural distiller might approach thecreation of an ‘Old Tom’ style gin,the team at Puddingstone Distillery married a unique botanical selection with pot distillation and compounding processes to deliver notes of spice, juniper and citruswith a hint of colour and sweetness without the use of sugar. History respected and re-imagined.
Sometimes it seems that some things were just meant to be. During the development of the distillery, Ben discovered that his great grandfather worked in the wine & spirits industry until a ripe old age. The distinguished gentleman, one Thomas Marston, was affectionately known by his peers as Old Tom.
Campfire Cask Aged Gin makes a pretty awesome negroni but Campfire Old Tom Gin is more than equal especially if you make their Old Bold Negroni recipe using a double measure of gin!
“Bold and slightly sweet, without being sugary; obviously still a gin – and a pretty awesome one at that” David T Smith, gin expert, judge and author
