Ransom Old Tom Gin
95 Points Gin
Tantalizing aromatics of juniper berries with notes of cardamom and angelica. Rich and silky punctuated by citrus zest carrying clean focused botanicals with an elegant finish.
This Old Tom Gin is a historically accurate revival of the predominant Gin in fashion during the mid-1800s and the golden age of American cocktails. The recipe was developed in collaboration with historian, author, and mixologist extraordinaire David Wondrich. Old Tom is the Gin for mixing classic cocktails dating from the days before prohibition. Its subtle maltiness is the result of using a base wort of malted barley, combined with an infusion of botanicals in high-proof corn spirits. The final distillation is run through an alembic pot still in order to preserve the maximum amount of aromatics, flavor, and body.
The first domestic Old Tom Gin to be released since Prohibition, Ransom's Old Tom Gin is a pioneer in the 21st century renaissance of Old Tom Gin and barrel-aged gins. Only the "heart of the hearts" (the very best portion of distillate) is retained for this special bottling.
Ransom Old Tom Gin opens with seductive aromatics of juniper berries and coastal forest, set off by apothecary spice notes of cardamom and angelica. The palate is rich and silky, with malt flavors punctuated by lively citrus zest and heady exotic notes of coriander and teak. The gin continues with suppleness and power, with the warmth and richness of the malt carrying clean, focused botanicals on a long, elegant finish.
