Remember the… er…

Another Old Tom gin surfaces, this time from the man behind the excellent Jensen’s Bermondsey gin. Based on a recipe from the 1840s this Old Tom uses absolutely no sugar, instead relying on increased botanicals to add sweetness and flavour as the first Old Toms probably did over 200 years ago.
