Old Tom Gin

A barrel aged gin that pays tribute to our forebears. Our Old Tom Gin is crafted in copper pot stills in Everett, Massachusetts before resting in whiskey barrels and slightly sweetened. An aroma of pine and oak leads to soft notes of citrus and vanilla, with a long spicy finish.

History of Old Tom Gin
Old Tom Gin plays a significant role in the history of gin. It emerged in 18th. century England during the Gin Craze, when spirits were harsh and alcohol consumption was heavy. To increase profit margins, distillers would cut gin with turpentine and sulphuric acid, creating spirits that were barely drinkable and sometimes even deadly. To make this gin taste better, the English started sweetening it with liquorice or sugar, making it a sweeter, less botanical version of what was being consumed at the time. This new spirit became known as Old Tom Gin.

So what’s in a name? There are many tales, but the name “Old Tom” allegedly comes from a picture of a black cat named “Tom” that hung outside of a bar in London. If you saw a bar with an old tom cat in the window, you could drop a coin into a lot underneath the cat’s paw and get a shot of gin in return.

Old Tom dominated the gin scene for decades, but as distillation techniques improved, there became less of a need for sweetening agents, and folks became more interested in drier styles of gin (i.e. London Dry).  Old Tom recently made its comeback and we’re excited to share our version with you.

Summer Gin

New England summer, captured in a bottle. Crafted in handmade copper pot stills in Everett, Massachusetts, Summer Gin is a blend of wild Maine blueberries, fragrant botanicals, and juniper. The result is an earthy, soothing gin, best enjoyed on a relaxing summer day.

Summer Gin was inspired by the wild juniper and blueberries that line the coast of Acadia National Park in Maine. Co-Founders Jackson and Zack are from Mount Dessert Island, and this spirit captures the essence of summers they enjoyed growing up on the island.

How it’s made
Summer Gin is first crafted using a blend of Juniper, orris root, coriander, lemongrass, lavender, and eucalyptus. Sound familiar? These are most of the same botanicals found in our flagship Gin. The difference is that we dial back the amount of lavender and eucalyptus used, and creating a less floral result. We also add orris root to help bring out the blueberry notes. We then soak wild Maine blueberries into the gin for 10 days, remove the blueberries and proof the spirit. Voila, Summer Gin is here!

Support Local
The wild Maine blueberries used to make Summer Gin are sourced from Blue Sky Produce, who pick their blueberries from 8 different small growers around Maine. As Blue Sky quotes, “supporting small growers enables them to stay in business and to continue being good stewards of their land.”

Why is there sediment in my bottle?
We do not chill-filter any of our spirits. This means they have the full flavor and mouthfeel of their class. As a result, Summer Gin will occasionally exude a cloudy or hazy appearance, or sediment may be visible. Have no fear, this is completely natural.

Summer Reserve

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. When life gives you gin-soaked blueberries… you make Summer Reserve!

Summer Reserve is a barrel-rested premium herbal spirit made from gin-infused wild Maine blueberries and local honey. After we finish making our blueberry-infused Summer Gin, we’re left with several hundred pounds of gin-soaked blueberries that were strained out of the gin. Since we don’t like to waste, we decided to make a liqueur out of these blueberries.

To make Summer Reserve, we press blueberries like grapes and let the resulting liqueur mellow in barrels for months. It’s then proofed down and lightly sweetened with locally sourced honey from Merrimack Valley Apiaries. The result is a complex spirit leading with notes of bittersweet blueberries, spiced oak, honey, and savory herbs.

Summer Reserve makes a great summer sipper, or you can easily mix it up with soda water and a lemon for a flavorful refresher at home. Scroll down for some cocktail recipes.

Support Local
The wild Maine blueberries used to make Summer Reserve are sourced from Blue Sky Produce, who pick their blueberries from 8 different small growers around Maine. As Blue Sky quotes, “supporting small growers enables them to stay in business and to continue being good stewards of their land.”

The honey used to lightly sweeten Summer Reserve is sourced from Merrimack Valley Apiaries, which is a family farm that has been operating for more than 50 years, with experience covering three generations. Each year their farm produces over one million pounds of raw honey. We’re so happy to be able to incorporate this high quality, locally made ingredient into our spirits.
