Tom Cat Gin
Zachary,
This gin gets tastier with every sip 😋

David,
This barrel aged gin is a delight to sip neat, with sweet honeyed notes blending really nicely with the sharp and expected juniper and pine. Tastes like a whiskey with uncommon nuance. Best aged gin I've tasted.

Matthew,
Color is amber. Nose is rich honey, with a background of juniper. Further nosing shows subtle citrus notes. First sip is viscous, which, paired with the rich honey notes, almost makes it feel like honey. The juniper is present, but fairly muted by the honey. Notes resembling citrus, but may actually be a variation of the juniper, show later in the palate. Finish is just an extension of the citrusy/juniper note with maybe a little spice note. Overall, enjoyable but maybe a little bland when served neat. When paired with 3:1 Fevertree Aromatic Tonic Water, actually gets to be a little better, as the Angostura nicely complements the juniper and honey.

Scott,
Tastes like a full cocktail distilled into a spirit. Really interesting and really delicious gin. A little sweeter than most, but smooth and very easy to sip on
Barr Hill Gin
Paul,
Wonderfully smooth and friendly sipping gin. Primarily enjoyed this one on the rocks.

guest,
Exceptional gin, juniper forward with honey to chase it. Unique and flavorful for use in any gin based cocktail, great in martini
Tom Cat Gin
John,
A GREAT GIN! Friends that have never liked Gin found this one very tasty and it has become a bit of a holiday tradition in the winter.
Barr Hill Gin
Byron,
Unusually sweet sipping gin with honey notes and a juniper nose.
Barr Hill Gin
Brett,
Way too sweet. Just honey and juniper. It can only fly in a G&T and a Bees Knees...
Tom Cat Gin
Sean,
Fantastic gin! The barrel aging gives it a nice, smooth, almost rummy flavor, with a strong juniper taste to remind you you're drinking gin. Deifnitely my favorite gin at the moment, great both straight and with tonic.
Tom Cat Gin
Ro,
Best Tom cat I’ve ever had
Tom Cat Gin
Leah,
Really fascinating complex flavors. Good sipping gin. Sweet but not cloying, slight medicinal nose, but does not come through on the palate.
Tom Cat Gin
Teagan,
This was definitely the sweetest gin I've tasted, and for me that's not necessarily a positive thing. Coming from much more herbal and floral gins, this wasn't really what I was looking for. However, what others here are saying is true: it feels more like a sweet bourbon or rum, except with a juniper base. If those are your shtick then I imagine you'll be quite happy.
Barr Hill Gin
Jesse,
Too sweet, not enough juniper or herbal notes. Not what I want in a gin.
Tom Cat Gin
Justin,
Currently my favorite gin, with a strong juniper flavor to enhance the experience. I prefer this to Barr Hill's other gin, but if someone finds the juniper too powerful they may find the Barr Hill base gin to be a better experience.
Barr Hill Gin
Justin,
One of my favorite gins, with a strong juniper flavor to enhance the experience, though the honey makes it a hair too sweet. I prefer the Tom Cat variety of the two; the stronger juniper provides a better balance to the honey finish.
Tom Cat Gin
Catherine,
Good but a little too sweet for more than one drink. Nice strong juniper flavor.
Tom Cat Gin
Rick,
I was blown away with how good this is. I'm a whiskey and aged rum fan and this hits a lot of the same notes. The honey adds the slightest sweetness and balances the spice of the pepper. I got this in a tasting box and will definitely add it to my regular go-to favorites in my home bar. Very nice!
Tom Cat Gin
Christina,
My favorite spirit of all time. Raw honey flavor is forward in a great way, not sweet, just flavorful. It's a gin, but finishes like a whiskey, super smooth, the only spirit I prefer to drink straight.
Barr Hill Vodka
zebulon,
Great vodka
Barr Hill Gin
zebulon,
Best gin I have ever had
Barr Hill Gin
Maria,
Just my kind of gin... the soft honey note is subtle & floral & balances the juniper nicely.
Tom Cat Gin
Robert,
Smell: caramel, sugar. Taste: Almost like a rum. Honey is definitely forward. Not the typical bite you expect with gin. Body: thick and syrupy. Finish: sugary with a small bite. Wasn’t a huge fan on its own, but mixed with a fentimans tonic it is totally amazing!!!!
Tom Cat Gin
Austin,
Wow! Such a sweet, subtle floral nose with a warm, whiskey like finish.
Tom Cat Gin
Mike,
Too much honey sweetness for my taste. Love the legs, body and oaky/ caramel bourboness but just can’t over come the honey.
Tom Cat Gin
Sonali,
Surprisingly delightful! Rather than adding sweetness, the honey characteristic provides another layer of depth and helps with carry and soften it's peppery note. I was concerned by this gin's color and profile notes, but it really is lovely and nice to sip on its own! Definitely a treat to any home bar!
Tom Cat Gin
Holly,
Very tasty. Not as much sweetness as you might think from the honey being present, just adds a touch but interesting character. This with club soda and a lemon wedge is a spectacular drink.
Tom Cat Gin
Shane,
I don’t normally drink Gin neat, however there is so much flavor, that you would be doing yourself a disservice if you mixed it.
Tom Cat Gin
Wesly,
Amazing - like gin, like whiskey... the best of both worlds. Favorite way to enjoy- simply on the rocks.
Tom Cat Gin
Michael,
wow. that's pretty good gin. Never enjoyed gin as a sipper, but this one is different. especially with a splash of water. Sweet. Honey and juniper. Simple. Not your average gin.
Tom Cat Gin
Richard,
This is my favorite sipping gin. All the flavors are subtly mellow by the again. I was already a fan of Bar Hill. Ready to order my next bottle.
Tom Cat Gin
Leon,
Best gin I have had is long while, nice flavor. Great on the rocks with s piece of orange
Barr Hill Gin
VICTOR,
I like it as a sipping gin. The beeswax seal at the top and the slightly yellow tinge reminds you there's honey in there. It has a hint of floral and of course honey. You taste it more on the back end with a crisp finish.
Tom Cat Gin
Kristen,
Subtle sweetness from the honey is amazing.
Tom Cat Gin
Mark,
First time having aged gin. It is now among my favorites
Barr Hill Gin
nathan,
Juniper takes a far back seat to the honey flavors of this gin. Very smooth with floral notes. Is exceptional when combined with elderflower tonic and a wedge of Meyer lemon.
Tom Cat Gin
Amber,
Wow this was delicious as a GT! I love the sweetness from the honey, will definitely buy another bottle
Tom Cat Gin
Anita,
A G&T with Tom Cat made me like G & Ts again. This one is not for you if you like them dry, but hints of honey and other earthy flavors are readily available to the nose making for a more complex spirit.
Tom Cat Gin
Kevin,
Makes a decent Manhattan with sweet vermouth and bitters, I must say...
Tom Cat Gin
Kevin,
Also, a hint of clove. Not sure I like that.
Tom Cat Gin
Kevin,
I'll have to have a few more sips. But first impressions: Leather, juniper, then cinnamon with a sweet finish. A different gin than what I'm used to.
Tom Cat Gin
Marie,
By itself I would serve after dinner to replace a sherry or even a grappa. This gin can cover both. Curious to try it as a perfect martini so I can pull in some sweet vermouth.
Tom Cat Gin
Deborah,
I loved this! It’s the perfect marriage of what I love about both whiskey and gin!
Tom Cat Gin
Christine,
Strong honey flavor and a pine finish - sweet and refreshing, but with warm depth. I usually stick to scotch but this was lovely!
Tom Cat Gin
Erin,
Awesome experience!
Tom Cat Gin
David,
Not bad has a wintry, autumn feel to it. Love the sweet taste and isn't too harsh.
Barr Hill Gin
Matt,
Honey is front and center in this amazing gin. When it gets warm outside, this is our go-to for gin cocktails.
Tom Cat Gin
Javier,
Smooth honey, tropical notes and juniper. Very well made. Love it.
Barr Hill Gin
Steve,
A lot of flavor. Awesome gin and tonic in the summer.
