York Gin Old Tom
York Gin Old Tom was awarded a Gold Outstanding medal at the IWSC in July 2019, one of only 6 gins worldwide to do so, with a score of 98/100. Yep, it's that good!
As with Old Tom's as a style - expect a lovely sweetness. Here, it is achieved by adding a specially made herb-infused sugar syrup made using ingredients that are foraged from local hedgerows and the Star Inn's kitchen garden. In the mix and noteworthy botanicals are the White Alba Rose (also know as the Dog Rose - the White Rose of Yorkshire), along with Bronze Fennel and Star Anise. Angelica and pink peppercorns (Baie rose de Bourbon) complete the complex syrup and the result is quite stunning.
If using Indian Tonic:
We love the dual use of lemon and thyme as a garnish with this gin.
