This delicious grain-based gin is produced in Aberdeen, Scotland with a focus on distilling at low temperatures to preserve the delicate flavors and aromas of the botanicals. The palate is clean and smooth with layers of tropical fruit, petrichor, white tea, and rainwater with an easy, no-burn finish. In our opinion, it's excellent over ice with a small splash of Crème de Cassis!

From Porter's website:

"Our old tom stays true to the classic combination of sweetened gin and exotic botanicals, whilst using modern methods to extract more refined flavours. A classic juniper base is lifted by tropical notes of passion fruit, guava and white tea, which are cold-distilled to retain their juicy freshness. This is then very slightly sweetened to create our perfectly balanced, tropical old tom recipe.

Botanicals include: Juniper, passion fruit, guava, white tea, orris root, cinnamon, lemon peel, orange peel, angelica root, cassia bark, almond, coriander, liquorice.

Creating better drinks has always been our passion so we built a forward thinking micro-distillery in the basement of a cocktail bar in Aberdeen, Scotland. Through consultation with scientists from Aberdeen University we built a vacuum still, capable of distilling at much lower temperatures to avoid heat damaging delicate botanicals. The resulting liquid captures light and natural flavours from delicate ingredients which we pair with a juniper-forward recipe from one of the oldest distilleries in the UK.

A few years down the line and we now have three vacuum stills to meet the precise standards to make our cold distillates."
