It's alive! Ransom has brought Old Tom back from the dead.
This gin is based on an old, practically extinct recipe from America's pre-Prohibition heyday, revived and developed with the help of cocktail historian David Wondrich, so you know it's gotta be good. The first time we took a sip, we were blown away by its malty, subtle sweetness and smooth vanilla notes picked up from barrel-aging. We can't stop talking about it (or drinking it).
Ransom's Old Tom Gin won the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the 2013 San Diego Spirits Festival and the 7th Annual American Distilling Institute Judging.
tip of the tongue
We love this gin on the rocks with a lemon twist. This is the perfect gift for a serious home bartender or a whiskey fan that wants to try something new.
Did you know?
Gin can be infused with a wide variety of botanicals, but it MUST contain juniper berries, which are responsible for that distinct, piney, gin-y flavor.
