Poetic License Old Tom Gin

Poetic Licence's Old Tom gin is made using no sugar - all the sweetness is produced by the liquorice root, and they are keen to be as historically accurate in their production of an Old Tom as possible, using barrels to create a sweet flavour.

Northern Dry Gin

The Poetic License Northern Dry Gin has been described as a gin for gin lovers - it has 13 key botanicals in total, most of which are classic, juniper being at the forefront, as well as with coriander seeds, angelica root. Green cardamom is complimented by dried Persian lime, alongside four different types of pepper including cubeb berries.

Fireside Gin

This gin acts as a blanket for the knee in the cold with its toasty flavours. As well as usual gin notes coming from juniper, coriander and orris root, there is a sweetness from dried winter fruits. It also features a zingy freshness from clementine. The mulling spice blend of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg gives a warming flavour reminiscent of your favourite seasonal treats, sure to warm you from the inside out!
