Dunnet Bay Distillers Launch ‘Old Tom'

5th February 2019

Uniquely Refreshing Pink Grapefruit Gin.

This Month, Scotland's most northerly mainland distillery, Dunnet Bay, is announcing the launch of a new gin, set to become a permanent part of its portfolio. Inspired by its sell-out citrus-based Artists' Edition, this version is even fresher, featuring organic pink grapefruit peel.

To create the gin, the grapefruit peel, all hand peeled by the distillery team, is added to their botanical basket, before being vapour infused along with all Rock Rose Gin's traditional botanicals. It is then lightly sweetened with muscovado sugar. The result is a gin with a wonderful fresh citrus flavour and a beautiful sweetness.

As a softer gin, Old Tom is seen as the missing link between the heave Dutch Genever and the more modern London Dry Gins, and was once available in every bar in the country. This historic drink is now being distilled for the modern palate, creating a sweeter and lighter gin for those less inclined to favour the more juniper-based dry gins.

Martin Murray, Co-Founder, says, "This extra special edition of Rock Rose Gin derives from our popular ‘Design a Rock Rose Gin Label' competition of 2016, which became the wonderful citrus-based Artists' Edition. As a very limited batch, it sold out very quickly and we were soon inundated with requests to recreate the fabulous gin. We've believe we’ve improved it even further and created the most refreshing gin in our portfolio. Coming complete in a stunning ceramic bottle, we also think it’s the perfect wee gift for Valentine’s and Mother’s Day."

Signature Serve: 25 ml of Rock Rose Gin, 50 ml of a premium tonic. Garnish with pink grapefruit or orange peel.

Old Tom Gin is available from February 2019 from www.dunnetbaydistillers.co.uk priced £34, 700ml.
