Barr Hill Reserve Tom Cat Gin
Aged Gin /43% ABV / Vermont, United States
- Aged Gin
- Vermont, United States
Barrel aged 4-6 months in new, charred American White Oak, Tom Cat is a completely unique gin with whiskey-like notes of oak, spice and a finish of juniper and raw honey. 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.View all products by Barr HillCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

This is one of the most unexpected, savory, floral, slightly sweet gins I’ve ever experienced. I cannot believe this level of flavor and uniqueness is available at this price point. Tom Cat is a wild ride with a lot of turns, from the clear lavender undertones to the classic gin herbaceous overtones, to the sweet linger and slight bite on the nose. I have had a lot of different liquors, and collect quite a few hard to get bottles…this is one that I hope never hits the mainstream. It’s a sleeping giant. Every person I’ve introduced it to - gin drinkers from London to scotch stalwarts to rum aficionados from the Caribbean - LOVE this bottle and are blown away. It gets a good night with a few friends going, and all for under 70 bucks.
This aged gin drinks like a bourbon with a hint of juniper spice and some roundness from the raw honey! I don't know of any other gin being aged in new charred American white oak barrels! wow
