Wandering the streets of 18th century London during the gin craze, in search of something to drink, the sight of a black cat painted on a sign above a door would have indicated the presence of an illicit gin shop...
A black tom cat, to be precise.

This clandestine signal gave the sweeter style of gin available at the time its name. Glasgow-based craft distillery Illicit's modern take on the Old Tom is distilled with pink peppercorns, rosehips, and tonka beans, and sweetened post-distillation with bee pollen and honey.

40% ABV • 70cl
