OLD TOM GINS
Inspired by the botanical rich and lightly sweetened Old Tom Gins of yesteryear, our Classic Old Tom Gin was launched globally in the April of 2018 and was the first spirit from The House of Botanicals brand. As long-term exponents of collaboration we partnered with Scotland’s oldest independent bottler, Wm Cadenhead’s, to source a gin produced in London; a subtle reference to the history of Old Tom Gin.
Officially launched at Taste of Grampian in June 2019, our House of Botanicals Raspberry Old Tom Gin is a seasonal exclusive that will be available solely from June through to September, or as long as we can source locally grown Scottish raspberries. Ultimately a response to the modern trend of low-abs sickly sweet Pink Gins, we wished to showcase that gin can utilise berries, still taste of juniper, and most importantly be delicious!
Launched at the Aberdeen Gin Fest in July 2018, the House of Botanicals Maple Old Tom Gin was originally discovered in newspaper archives whilst bartending back in 2010, with our variant created during the Research & Development stage of our Classic Old Tom Gin. Introducing a floral and spicy edge to accompany the dominant juniper flavour, it was initially launched as a limited edition batch of 1112 bottles but relaunched as a permanent addition to our portfolio in March 2019.
