Old Tom re-creates an old-fashioned, sweeter style of gin that became extinct, but has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years. Before today’s dry gins, the popular style was both richer and sweeter. Makar Old Tom revives this tradition, complementing the bold juniper of Makar with orange peel, almonds and a little honey.
