Zuidam's Dutch Courage Old Tom Gin is single pot distilled with 10 botanicals, juniper, elderflower, Italian orris root, Moroccan coriander, angelica, sweet orange, whole fresh Spanish lemons, Indian liquorice, whole vanilla beans from Madagascar and a secret only known to Zuidam's team ingredient! This is then aged in American oak casks for a short period. This aging in the wood is done to create a authentic and unique flavour. Bottles being made of glass were very expensive back in the 1800's when Old Tom gin originates from so was most likely shipped in wooden barrels.
On the nose this gin is spicy and complex with cardamom and juniper softened by the sweet vanilla notes. On the palate this is slightly sweet as you would expect from an Old Tom gin, with earthy juniper and vanilla and wood spices.
