A sweet Old Tom Gin.
House of Elrick sits tight in Aberdeen in the idyllic Scottish Lowlands. This is a small batch and artisanal Spirits company that was established in the 1700s, which was the height of the enlightenment era. With their selection of fine, hand-crafted Gins and Spirits and inspired by a radical shift against the ‘norm’, they quickly became the centre for artists and poets who enjoyed a glass (or two) of London Dry Gin over exchanges of their philosophies. Today, House of Elrick still gets their water from Loch Ness and they use 8 carefully selected botanicals in their Gins. They also still boast a beautiful handmade Scottish copper still known as “Charlie” after Bonnie Prince Charlie to make their single shot Spirit, which allows them to control the production.
Reviving a 17th century recipe, House of Elrick Old Tom Gin builds upon their Original Gin that’s made with 8 carefully selected botanicals, including juniper, citrus, coriander, pink peppercorn, angelica, sweet fennel, rose petals, and heather. To bring out their full flavor, the botanicals are macerated overnight in 40C heat before the production starts. Old Tom Gin is then sweetened after distillation with syrup, creating a delicate balance of flavors with a sweet and soft touch. You’ll still get the classic flavors of the Original Gin but with a pleasant twist. Pour it over ice and add a premium tonic or use it in your favorite Gin-forward cocktail.

Juniper leads the way to a rich citrus blend with a rich floral note kick from the rose and heather, balanced nicely with the coriander and pepper spice. A subtle sweetness is present throughout.
Fresh, earthy, distinctly floral, and spicy with a sweet edge.
