If you are familiar with Old Tom gins, you know they are a bit sweeter than dry gins. We dialed down the sweetness in ours and balanced out the sweet with lemon, oranges and grapefruit. Our desire to elevate this 90.6 proof Old Tom to a new level came to us in the form of a barrel. That’s right! We allowed the Old Tom to rest in Pedro Ximenez dessert sherry casks, giving it complexity, depth, and a lovely, light, golden hue.
