Hayman's Old Tom Gin is a botanically-intensive and lightly sweetened style of gin that was particularly popular in the 18th Century and was the Gin of Choice in the 19th Century.

In comparison to London Dry Gin, the Old Tom style delivers a more rounded taste experience with depth. The distinctive Old Tom Gin profile is the key ingredient in classic gin cocktails such as the Martinez, Tom Collins and Ramos Gin Fizz.

The style of Old Tom is renowned for its botanical intensity balanced by a light sweetness, which imparts a more complex experience than other styles of gin.

Nose: Hayman's Old Tom Gin has a botanically-intensive, sweet, lightly-fruity nose, with aromas of sweet digestive biscuit, almond and creamy lemon-citrus. Hints of ginger, dark chocolate, and sweet, spiced coffee, with a light herbal-spiciness from juniper and coriander, give a more rounded fragrance.

Palate: A rich, soft, round mouth feel, yielding to a sweet, medium body of candied ginger, orange peel and lemon zest, with accents of violets, rose-water and anise, provide the nicely-balanced, traditional flavour of this lightly-sweetened gin style.

Finish: The finish is a delicate, spiced-cake note with a touch of honey-icing. After an initial sweet, confectionery taste, hints of citrus and juniper spiciness supply a lovely, smooth taste.

Great neat. Viscous, slightly sweet, not heavily flavoured. The only spirit my wife will drink neat.
