Production Notes

Winchester Distillery’s interpretation of an authentic ‘Old Tom’ Gin; a slightly sweet and botanically complex style of gin that was popular during the 18th and 19th centuries and is the base of classic cocktails such as the Tom Collins and the Martinez.

Old Tom Gin initially came about after the creation of the characterful malty Dutch spirit, Genever but before lighter, purer Dry Gin, which became possible by the invention of the Coffey Still in the 1830's.

To make the Old Tom, they pot distil six traditional botanicals - juniper berries, liquorice root, coriander seed, bitter orange peel, angelica root and calamus root - with 96% ABV spirit (as required by EU law) then blend in their own malt spirit (double distilled in the pot still).

Producer Information

Winchester Distillery, established by Paul Bowler in 2014, produces premium spirits inspired by the Hampshire countryside and its wealth of local botanicals.

Everything is made by hand in small batches using their closely-guarded recipes as a guide and the master distiller's twisted nose to fine-tune each batch to perfection.

The products you see here are Winchester Distillery's classic range of products - but it's worth popping in to see us as we often get tiny batches of the weird and definitely unusual!
