Hayman’s Old Tom Gin

From Hayman Distillers

Hayman’s Old Tom Gin, distilled to a family recipe from the 1870s, is an authentic mark of English heritage. Botanically intensive, the hint of sweetness in Old Tom delivers a more rounded profile than other dry gin styles. Smooth and slightly sweet, with a classic balance of fresh citrus and mild liquorice, Old Tom was the gin used in classic gin cocktails such as the Martinez and Tom Collins during the first cocktail era of the 1880s.
