Tom Cat is the modern-day adaption of 18th century England’s most revered spirit, Old Tom gin. After gin was outlawed by the Spirits Act of 1750, rebellious pub owners would hang a wooden plaque shaped like a black cat to inform the passerby of their defiance of the ban.
Deposit a few pennies through the cat’s mouth and a bartender would pour a ration of Old Tom to be sipped through a tube between the cat’s paws.
The robust character of the new American oak barrel yields an enticing aroma. A touch of raw honey leaves it remarkably approachable. When the world called for whiskey, we answered resolutely with gin.
