Boatyard Old Tom is slightly sweeter with a more rounded mouthfeel than a London Dry Gin, with the Pedro Ximénez casks used influencing our Old Tom Gin interpretation. Old Tom is a style of gin that takes its name from the 18th Century. A sign was erected outside Captain Bradstreet’s premises in London carrying the image of a cat. Passers-by would deposit their penny in a slot and receive a slug of gin from a lead pipe under the cat's paw in return. Boatyard Old Tom is made using a gin base that has been distilled in Copper Alembic Pot Still, called ‘Érainn’. The collected spirit rests in hand-picked first-fill Pedro Ximénez sherry casks where the natural sweetness and of the sherry absorbs into the gin. A small amount of PX sherry gives the gin a velvety smooth mouthfeel.
