Bathtub Old Tom Gin Bottling Note

Professor Cornelius Ampleforth has been at it again, and this time he’s recreated a traditional style of gin that was very popular in 18th and 19th century England. Old Tom is a slightly sweetened gin, created by the professor following a request from The Handmade Cocktail Company, which needed a tasty Old Tom gin for use in their Martinez cocktail.

Old Tom got its name from an usual dispensing method used by London gin houses.

A tom cat-shaped plaque would be hung outside where passers-by could drop a coin in the animal’s mouth. The proprietor would then dispense a shot of gin from a tube under the cat’s paws.

This almost-forgotten style of gin is perfect in sweet gin cocktails – it’s how the classic Tom Collins got its name – and makes a tasty G&T.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: This is fruity and sweet on the nose with pronounced botanical notes. There is a good citrus element to it too.

Palate: The light sweetness seems to add body to this, and helps develop some of the juniper and orange flavours.

Finish: Clean with a touch of pepper.

Overall: A great gin that not only makes a great G&T (the additional body works wonders) but will make a fantastic martinez... in fact it's the obvious ingredient for any classic gin cocktail that requires a hint of sweetness.

    User Reviews of the Bathtub Old Tom Gin


    Having read reviews for this we just had to try it, and boy were we served a treat! I like the Old Tom style of gin and this is the best I've yet had. Deliciously smooth and citrusy, it leaves a slightly peppery taste at the finish.
    We had it with both quality tonic and lesser types to see if it made a huge difference and to be fair the gin is big enough to win over both. Served with ice and a slither of Orange peel and you have the perfect Old Tom G& to try different products from the Prof.

    Incredibly Drinkable

    This just went down with some cold tonic. I had it with no ice but I bet it would be lovely with ice. Very accurate tasting notes.
