The Orkney Gin Company - Rhubarb Old Tom Gin is handcrafted by the multi award winning Orkney Gin Company and produced using the traditional Old Tom style, originally made popular in the 18th century.

This delicate and slightly sweet Old Tom is presented in a stoneware bottle that depicts an Orkney ‘Selkie’. Selkies are mysterious, shape-shifting creatures of Orcadian legend. In the sea, they take the form of seals. On the land, they cast aside their sealskins and emerge as beautiful young men and women, mysterious and alluring.

Botanicals: juniper, rose petals, orange peel, cinnamon, and rhubarb.

Tasting Notes

The Rhubarb Old Tom is a soft and lightly sweetened gin with authentic fruity rhubarb notes, a hint of gorse flower and peppery juniper.

The perfect serve

Perfect when served over ice with you favourite tonic or ginger ale to give the classic rhubarb & ginger combination. Finish with some fresh raspberries.

Meet the maker

Made by Andrea and Gary, a husband and wife team from Burray in the archipelago of Orkney, the Orkney Gin Company started by making a range of handcrafted gins using the traditional cold compounding method. The process is labour intensive and the gin is produced in tiny micro-batches. Infusion is undertaken in stages, and constant, meticulous sampling for quality is carried out. Once the perfect balance has been achieved, the gin is blended, filtered and bottled. Hand labelling lends a personal finishing touch. The family has now opened a purpose built distillery beside their home which will allow them to experiment with and create distilled spirits.
