DetailsBathtub Gin Old Tom is a slightly sweetened variation on the original Bathtub Gin. Old Tom gin gets its name from the way it used to be served by the London gin houses back in the 18th century—you’d put a coin into a dispenser in the shape of a black cat outside the gin house and out would come a shot! Magical stuff that still lives on in the sketched cat on the Bathtub Gin Old Tom label. Onto the formula. When we say ‘slightly sweetened,’ all we mean is that it’s been sweetened to the point that several notes of the botanicals used to make the gin become a little more prominent—you’ll get a bit more liquorice, more citrus notes, and a sweeter, candy-like version of the juniper. As part of the Ableforth’s Bathtub Gin family, Bathtub Gin Old Tom is true to the old-time recipe, and perfect for mixing up into sweet gin cocktails—most notably the Martinez. Bring together Bathtub Gin Old Tom with some sweet vermouth, maraschino liqueur, Angostura bitters, and a bit of lemon for show, and you may find yourself falling for this classic cocktail that may have paved the way for today’s traditional martini. Of course, you can also use Bathtub Gin Old Tom to make a batch of a drink that was basically named after it—the Tom Collins.
