Information

Old Tom Gin is a historical gin recipe, once very common in 18th century England and then fading in prominence and ceding the general 'gin' floor to London Dry Gin (which is what folks tend to mean when they specify gin).

Still, Old Tom Gin has been carving out a place for itself in the modern cocktail world: sweeter than London Dry Gin but not as sweet as Jenever, it's a remarkably balanced spirit that fits well into many recipes.
