Ableforth's has been at it again, this time recreating a traditional style of gin that was very popular in 18th and 19th century England. Old Tom is a slightly sweetened gin, created following a request from The Handmade Cocktail Company, which needed a tasty Old Tom gin for use in their Martinez cocktail.

Old Tom got its name from an unusual dispensing method used by London gin houses.

A tom cat-shaped plaque would be hung outside where passers-by could drop a coin in the animals mouth. The proprietor would then dispense a shot of gin from a tube under the cats paws.

This almost-forgotten style of gin is perfect in sweet gin cocktails its how the classic Tom Collins got its name and makes a tasty G&T.
