Sacred Gin is produced in a micro-distillery in North London. Rather than using a traditional pot-still for production, vacuum-distillation is used which requires a far lower temperature. Sacred Old Tom Gin is their high-strength interpretation of the 18th century classic. Botanicals such as juniper, licorice root and orange peel are used.

    This 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.

Tasting Notes

"Sacred Old Tom Gin begins with mint, fennel and aniseed, as well as a good amount of caraway and licorice, this could be mistaken for aquavit almost. A little more fruitiness on the palate is brought in the form of orange peel and other citrus fruits. Complex and interesting, and a total winner."
