70cl, 46% ABV
Boatyard Old Tom is made using Boatyard Double Gin, which is distilled with eight different botanicals and produced in ‘Doc Brown’, Boatyard’s 250-litre still. Once distilled, the spirit rests for a minimum of four months – drawing flavour and colour from the cask – before the addition of Fermanagh honey for natural sweetness. Old Tom has notes of candied lemon peel, vanilla and cinnamon spice, with a silky orange finish. Slightly sweeter than London Dry but drier than Dutch genever, Old Tom is sometimes referred to as ‘the missing link’.
