Who is Poor Tom? It was the founders, after they had saved up money to buy their own still! A veteran distiller who was brought in to help create the gin said they looked poor when they bought the still. While the usual botanicals are present, there are some unusual ones as well, including freshly pressed granny smith apples, lemon myrtle, chamomile and strawberry gum leaf. These botanicals give the gin a light floral style. The juniper is present on the nose but isn't heavy. The palate is slightly sweet, with the chamomile and lemon myrtle coming through. A pleasant finish that makes it great for cocktails. We would recommend East Imperial Burma Tonic and Strawberry as a garnish for a great G&T.
