Boatyard Old Tom Gin 46% - 5cl/50ml miniature
From county Fermanagh comes this great tasting gin that has been distilled in both pot and column stills. The juniper berries are treated in special process borrowed from the Dutch in which double contact with the spirit is achieved hence the term 'double gin'. The terroir of the surrounding area comes from a botanical known as Sweet Gale which is harvested from the family farm.
To make the old Tom, they age their excellent Boatyard Double Gin in bourbon barrels, then sweeten it with Fermanagh honey.
It is slightly sweeter than London Dry but drier than Dutch genever - thus sometimes referred to as ‘the missing link’.
The gorgeous hand printed letter-pressed label really adds value.
Notes of candied lemon peel, vanilla and cinnamon spice with hints of pepper, a silky orange finish.
86% Juniper, 11% Coriander, 1.2% Honey, 0.45% Angelica, 0.45% Lemon, 0.45% Grains of Paradise, 0.45% Sweet Gale. To give the customer total transparencey the percentages and ratios of each botanical are listed.
