Zuidam Distillers still creates their products in the traditional artisanal way. All ingredients are 100% natural and are carefully selected and processed into the most beautiful products in a family owned and run distillery. All recipes are designed by father Fred and son Patrick van Zuidam.

Dutch Courage Old Tom Gin is made according to the original traditions.

The base spirit is distilled in a potstill then redistilled with 10 botanicals. The distillates are blended and diluted to drinking strength and then aged in new American oak barrels for a short period. This aging in wood is done to create an authentic flavour profile. Bottles were pretty rare and expensive in the 18th century so it is most likely that Old Tom gin was shipped, stored and served from a barrel and as such must have had some wood influence in the character.

Style

Old Tom Gin

Key Botanicals

Juniper berries, elderflower, iris root, coriander seeds, angelica root, sweet oranges and fresh whole lemons, liquorice root and whole vanilla beans from Madagascar.

Tasting Notes

The nose is spicy and complex with cardamom and juniper softened by vanilla notes. The flavour is ever so slightly sweet with earthy juniper and vanilla and wood spices.

Perfect Serve

Tom Collins or this particular Old Tom Gin is great in a Martinez of Negroni cocktail.
