Founded in San Francisco more than 100 years ago, Anchor Brewing & Distilling remains an innovator in the beverage industry. Fritz Maytag, the pioneer of modern craft-brewing became the instrumental force behind the Company’s resurrection in 1965 and sparked the modern craft movement in the USA.
This Old Tom is made in a pot still with juniper, anise and liquorice root. The unique ingredient is Paraguayan stevia, adding the sweetness that this style of gin is known for. Superb in a Collins or Martinez.
Gets going with a nose of anise plus sharp juniper as well as some sweet dairy cream, citrus with an undercurrent of savory herbs. On the palate, it’s lightly sugary and touched with a bit of cinnamon. A lightly woody, almost smoky element arrives after some time in glass, until, finally, the licorice/anise element hits solidly as the finish builds. Anchor Old Tom goes out not with a fiery bang but with a sigh, slowly making its sultry, sweet escape.
