Award-Winning South African
Old Tom Gin
Sometimes called, “The missing link”, a true Old Tom already invokes an aura of mystery. Slightly sweeter and stronger than a London Dry, but drier than the Dutch Genever; like the cat for which it is named, it slips its way as smoothly into a Martini as it capers into a summery Tom Collins.
Like the Gold award that it won and the gold that is integral to the Kintsugi philosophy, our gin is laced with golden fynbos honey, distilled with drops of golden orange and infused with spicy saffron: worth its weight in gold.
With a higher alcohol volume of 47% to bring out the sweetness, citrus and spice, it is truly an experience worth savouring.
As the story goes, the first time that juniper was combined with alcohol was as far back as 70A.D. Juniper Berries were steeped in wine for medicinal use.
So, for us, the first gin was an Old Tom – sweet and junipery – and our exotic list of ingredients reads like an elixir from these most ancient times.
Let our Award-Winning Kintsugi Gin knit your friendship together with golden threads. Let the honey add sweetness, and the saffron add spice, and find the gold in each moment of this adventure called life.
