York Gin Old Tom
York Gin Old Tom is a classic Victorian-style gin – slightly sweeter than our original London Dry gin, but only slightly.
So dry gin drinkers can appreciate the subtle extra layers of flavour resulting from the Yorkshire sugar syrup added to the gin.

York Gin Old Tom is a Victorian-style dry gin slightly sweetened with a small amount of herb-infused sugar syrup made in the kitchen of one of Yorkshire’s finest restaurants – the Michelin-starred Star Inn, Harome.
The syrup was created by Chef Patron, Andrew Pern, who also runs York’s Star Inn The City and Mr P’s Curious Tavern as well as the Star Inn the Harbour, Whitby.
The syrup’s key ingredients are foraged from local hedgerows and the Star Inn’s kitchen garden – the White Alba Rose also know as the Dog Rose (the White Rose of Yorkshire), along with Bronze Fennel and Star Anise. Angelica and pink peppercorns (Baie rose de Bourbon) complete the complex syrup.
Botanicals: juniper, coriander seeds, angelica root, cardamom, cinnamon bark, dried lemon peel, orris root, black pepper and grains of paradise.
