Creating The Dorchester’s Old Tom Gin
Bespoke Gin, Bottles, & Labels
We worked with The Dorchester, a luxury 5-star hotel in London, to create branded Old Tom gin. As a bulk wholesale order, we helped the Dorchester’s iconic bar manager, Giuliano Morandin, to create a customised gin that would reflect the historic hotel. Not only were the bottles and gin bespoke, but the gin bottle labels were also unique to their brand. This includes a decadent wax seal and hand-signed label.
Old Tom Gin is a sweeter version of our typical London Dry Gin. Popularised in the 19th century, it’s the preferred gin of choice for a classic Tom Collins cocktail. To create the Old Tom Gin, we added a delicate sugar syrup to our classic dry craft gin after distillation in our copper still.
Famously served from The Bar at the Dorchester hotel, their exclusive old tom gin can be collected for free, or delivered via UK courier service. The gin has an ABV of 43% and is in a 70cl size bottle.
This gin also won a gold award at the International Wine & Spirits Competition 2022!
