Mackintosh - Old Tom Gin (70cl, 40%)
Mackintosh Pineapple and Grapefruit Old Tom Gin is a sweeter gin designed to be enjoyed with lemonade. Distilled with fresh pineapple and grapefruit it is a perfect cocktail gin, delicious over ice with lemonade. The sweetness comes from candy syrup which is added post distillation.
It is floral with citrus flavours and a lingering taste. It is distilled in Angus using a bouquet of ten botanicals sourced from all over the world. Juniper led, it is complimented with specially selected botanicals including Mediterranean citrus fruits and locally foraged elderflower.
Nose: Juniper led with a floral hint from the elderflower and sweet undertones of pineapple and grapefruit
Palate: Clean heady juniper on the tongue, smooth with a sweet citrus taste.
Finish: Garnish and lemonade opens up the gin to a citrus burst which the pineapple and grapefruit enhances, floral notes then emerge finishing with a lingering crisp finish. Bold juniper that mellows leaving a mild peppery spice and fresh pineapple aftertaste.
