Made according to Anton Rutte's 1918 handwritten recipe and launched as "Rutte Old Tom" just over a century later in 2019. Based on grain neutral alcohol redistilled with seven botanicals, including juniper, lemon, ginger, cinnamon, orange leaves and wormwood.

A splash of malt wine makes Rutte Old Tom a genever rather than a gin and Myriam Hendrickx, Rutte's Master Distiller, describes this "as a cross between a fresh, young genever and a classic gin."

(sample bottle batch 01) Crystal clear.


Piney juniper and freshly baked doughy brown bread with cinnamon spice and zesty citrus.


Dry with a faint touch of sweetness. Assertive juniper pine with rounding bready maltiness, enlivened with cinnamon, ginger and zesty citrus.


Cinnamon spiced bready pine with zesty citrus.

Συνολική αίσθηση:

The edition of malt wine and the low alc./vol. mean this cannot be considered a gin, old tom or otherwise, while generous juniper sets this apart from other genevers. Hence it is an "Old Tom Genever" and it works brilliantly in a Martinez.
