Bermondsey in the mid-19th Century was both a centre for trade and industry, and a notorious slum. Close to the River Thames and crammed with wharves and warehouses, it was the place where London's food was produced and stored. These days the warehouses are restaurants, and the weekend food markets provide delicacies for locals and visitors alike. And so Bermondsey continues its legacy as “London's Larder"�. Jensen"„¢s gin is distilled in the style of London gins of old. A soft, sweet gin harkening back to the mid-19th century. Jensen's Old Tom is naturally sweet with a great number of botanicals.
