This Australian Old Tom aged Gin, was originally released as a special serve for the 'Origins Dinner' at the 2014 Tasting Australia.
A traditional gin flavoured with native plants and distilled in the wilds of South Australia’s Kangaroo Island spirits Old Tom Gin has taken out the Champion’s Trophy in the Australian Distilled Spirits Awards handed out by the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria in Melbourne (April 2016).
‘Old Tom’ – crafted by Kangaroo Island Spirits at its Cygnet River distillery near Kingscote –
boasts a distinctly Australian flavour enhanced by the inclusion of foliage from the coastal Daisy bush (olearia axillaris), native Juniper (myoporum insulare) and locally grown Lemon Myrtle and Aniseed Myrtle leaves. Its makers then doff their hats to tradition by ageing the unique gin in French oak for a short time in the spirit of early London expressions.
Supplies of Old Tom are limited with much demand following the award. Production has been increased but the ageing period and small batch production will take a little time to catch up. Currently only available by phone on 08 8553 9211 or email enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be put on the mailing list for the next release. .
