- Hayman's Old Tom Gin is a rich and rounded style of gin with a beautifully delicate finish. Hints of citrus and juniper piney notes provide a delicious, smooth taste, and the subtle sweetness keeps it true to the original style of English Victorian gin.
Back in the 1800s, Old Tom was the gin of choice; traditionally served neat but also in classic gin cocktails such as the Martinez, Tom Collins, and Ramos Gin Fizz. So in 2007, encouraged by requests from curious bartenders and gin enthusiasts, Hayman's reintroduced Old Tom Gin made from an old 1870s family recipe. It's perfect for a more rounded and full flavored Gin and Tonic or easy sipping over ice. And it's the gin for mixing those true, classic gin cocktails. (from the distiller)
