Downslope’s Ould Tom Gin is an historical interpretation of late 1800s-style of gin. It is based on a distillate made from fermented Maui cane juice which is distilled in a pot still and then twice distilled in a column still. The 7 botanicals used include juniper, Vietnamese cinnamon and star anise

Clear, pale golden.
Oily, slightly grappa-like, toasted cinnamon bagel nose with eucalyptus and alpine spruce forest after rain.
Pine flavoured cinnamon bagel with those slightly grappa-like notes from the nose. Has genuine notes of a traditional Dutch genever.
Cinnamon, liquorice finish with piney star anise. An interesting bridge between various gin styles but perhaps more genever than old tom.
