CAMPFIRE OLD TOM GIN, 45%
“Bold and slightly sweet, without being sugary; obviously still a gin – and a pretty awesome one at that” David T Smith, gin expert, judge and author
In considering how an 18th centuryrural distiller might approach thecreation of an ‘Old Tom’ style gin,we’ve married a unique botanical selection with pot distillation and compounding processes to deliver notes of spice, juniper and citruswith a hint of colour and sweetness without the use of sugar. History respected and re-imagined.
During the development of the distillery, Ben discovered that his great grandfather worked in the wine & spirits industry until a ripe old age. The distinguished gentleman below, one Thomas Marston, was affectionately known by his peers as Old Tom.
Old Tom gin cocktails are the original gin cocktails, long before London Dry gin cocktails and even vodka cocktails came on the scene. We think our Campfire Cask Aged Gin makes a pretty awesome negroni but Campfire Old Tom Gin is more than equal especially if you make our Old Bold Negroni recipe using a double measure of gin!

Serve in a Thekkady Cyclist cocktail – the creationof this vegan gin cocktail was inspired by eating a sweet dish called payasam on our cycling trip to Kerala, India.
For a simple G&T serve with an Indian tonic water or Fever-Tree Mediterranean tonic water and a slice of lime.
Franklin & Sons Sicilian Lemon Tonic makes an excellent pairing for something a little more citrusy.
The balsamic and cherry shrub cocktail is sweet, spicy and bitter – definitely worth the 24 hour wait to prep the shrub! The Old Tom Sawyer is Campfire Old Tom Gin, Bitter Union Aromatic Bitters and Spiced Orange Bitters with lime and sugar syrup – voted the best of the three gin cocktails during our cocktail bitters themed online tutoring event.
