Ransom Old Tom Oregon Gin (750ml)
Ransom spirits is a one man, artisanal distillery in Sheridan, Oregon run by Tad Seestedt. The Old Tom gin is all done on an alembic pot still, and it is an historically accurate replication of what people were drinking in the 1800s and during the golden age of American cocktails. (Cocktail historian David Wondrich collaborated on the project.) It has just a touch of sweetness, a golden amber color and is made from malted barley and corn. Make the original Martinez cocktail with the original Old Tom Gin. One of the most fun products we've played with this year. It is versatile, but classically styled. A must for any serious mixer. Gold medal winner, International Review of Spirits and 93 points Beverage Tasting Institute: "Pale amber pink color. Aromas of sweet berry and citrus pastry, floral hops, honey and spice follow through on a soft,silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with wintermint, mango custard, dried lavender, and herbal juniper and sweet spices on the gentle polished finish. Very nice."
