Christian Jensen makes gin that plays homage to London's distilling past, using traditional botanicals, small batches, and classic recipes. In fact, the recipe for this Old Tom-style gin comes from an 1840s distiller's handbook. The result is completely unsweetened, yet has incredible balance thanks to the heavy use of Angelica root. Earthy, satisfying and complex, the Jensen Old Tom redefines the Old Tom category, while being complete historically accurate.

Jensen's Gin is quickly becoming one of the most well liked craft gins on the market. The reason they're having such great success is their commitment to creating authentic, historically relevant and delicious of the highest gin. Their Old Tom is distinct from every other commercial Old Tom on the market today. Taken from a handwritten recipe in an 1840s distiller's manual, the Bermonsday Old Tom is the only UNSWEETENED Old Tom on the market. Intensely flavored and achieving that sweet Old Tom flavor via the heavy use of angelica root rather than the addition of sugar, this is the perfect gin to create OT Classics like the Martinez or the Ramos Fizz. The lack of sugar gives the bartender much more control over the final flavor and the big bold botanicals lends itself to use in other classics like the Negroni or the Last Word.
