New Deal Distillery
Old Tom Gin
Golden amber color. Lively, malty, woody aromas of cedar pencil, caramelized nuts, sarsaparilla float, and pickling spices with a supple, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light body and a peppery, interesting, medium-long lemongrass, herbal tea, and pepper finish with moderate oak. A solid barrel aged gin that drinks like a young whisky, mix as such.
