Anchor Old Tom Gin (750ml)

SKU #1187150

With the revival of sweet vermouth cocktails like the Martinez, Negroni, and Tom Collins, comes the revival of the original sweet gin: Old Tom. Our own Anchor Distillery in San Francisco (just down the street from our store) is already renowned for its Junipero gin and now adds the slightly-sweet Old Tom recipe to its portfolio. Just a hint of sugar on the entry, before the herbaceous notes kick in and the spice picks up on the finish. For fans of gin cocktails with added sweetness, this is the dream gin you've been waiting for.

This year is the first year that I have played around with the Old Tom sweeter style of gin, and the Anchor Old Tom now has a permanent position on my home bar shelf. Slightly sweet, with notes of lemon and orange zest, and spicy juniper, this gin is absolutely fabulous mixed with blood orange juice and a bit of soda water! Or, try it with grapefruit juice! Such a fun and festive gin for springtime!

Anchor’s Old Tom is not a syrupy sweet gin, but has the subtle balancing sweetness that one expects from an Old Tom. On certain occasions you might want an OT that’s simple and straight forward, but if you want some thing with a little bit more depth, this should be your first choice. Warming and spicy, it feels like this stuff would be way to much to handle without the hint of sweetness. Great texture as well, showing a textural richness only found in the popular Ransom OT. Of course that product is barrel aged and pot still malted barley, so a pre-modern OT – while the Anchor is distilled more cleanly. Also the smiling cat on the label makes me happy.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
