Gin Lane 1751 Old Tom Gin
Old Tom Gin
Gin Lane 1751 // England
This gin expression is Gin Lane 1751's version of an Old Tom style gin. While it uses the same eight botanicals - juniper, orris root, seville orange, angelica, sicilian lemon, star anise, cassia bark, and coriander - as the distillery's London dry expressions, more star anise is used in production. Additionally, some refined sugar is also added before the final product is bottled at 40% ABV.
Old Tom GinThis style is not legally defined, but in general, this style of gin is mildly sweet and is not juniper-forward. It falls in between London Dry Gin and Genever in terms of sweetness level.
