Take a trip back in time to the Prohibition era and explore the fascinating story behind everyone’s favourite juniper tipple at the Old Tom Club take over in London’s Back Room Bar.
Maverick Drinks ambassador and gin extraordinaire James Goggin will be your host for the evening as you journey through gin history and unearth the unusual tale behind the Old Tom style.
You’ll embark upon a comprehensive tasting of six distinctly different gin styles – starting with classic genever and London Dry, through to new world craft and beyond – including Filliers Genever, Bathtub Old Tom Gin, and That Boutique-y Gin Company’s Pineapple Gin.
