  • "Fresh pine and juniper nose alongside a zesty palate with sweet a candied lemon character. Medium finish."

Penny Drop Gin is hand crafted in Cornwall and is our (Drink Finder / Constantine Stores) creation, made to a premium criteria set out by owners Mark & Andrew. As an independent wine and spirits specialist we love working with artisan producers and with over 60 years trading in the industry we certainly know our stuff. The result is an outstanding premium Cornish take on the Old Tom style of gin.

Why choose an Old Tom as the first release of Penny Drop Gin? Well this style is a little underrated and has so many playful and legendary stories surrounding how it got its name.

Our story goes as follows:
Targeting unscrupulous distillers, The Gin Act was introduced by parliament back in 1736 which levied a tax on gin. This lead to illegal activities including the notorious 'Penny Drop'. It is said customers would drop a penny into a slot in the wall beneath the sign of a cat. The distiller would pour a shot of gin through a lead pipe directly into the patron's mouth.... But, only after that penny had dropped.

What is an Old Tom Gin?
Old Tom Gin is slightly sweeter than London Dry gins and drier than Dutch Genever. This is our Cornish take on the historic style that is linked to this legendary story.

Penny Drop Gin Old Tom is made with the finest hand selected botanicals, these include juniper berries, coriander seeds, black pepper, cassia bark, vanilla, meadowsweet, lemon peel and seabuckthorn berries harvested here in Cornwall. To raise the sweetness in the profile and reach the classic Old Tom style we have used locally sourced honey from Polwheveral here in Constantine, Cornwall.
