Herno Old Tom Gin (500ml)

$84. 99
$1019.88 Dozen
ABV: 43%
This is essentially the same gin as Hernö's standard issue which employs eight botanicals, except Old Tom has extra British Meadowsweet added during the distillation. Following dilution a touch of honey is also included. Sweetening tends to lift the floral notes, releasing the juniper and making for an even smoother mouth feel.

Since its release in September 2014, Herno Old Tom has received a total of four Master medals at the Global Gin Masters and also a Gold / Outstanding at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) 2015.

Tasting note: [Batch 33 tasted] Clear. Intensely aromatic with no shortage of pepper through the juniper, vanilla and floral citrus. Cinnamon too. Air contact emphasises lemon peel and coriander freshness. A creamy, gently tingling delivery featuring elderflower gelato, marzipan, trace vanilla and juicy juniper to finish. Wonderfully textural with excellent sweet-dry balance. 43% Alc./Vol. Unfiltered.
