- Gold at the 2019 Spirits Business Gin Masters, putting it in the company of some of the best distilleries in the world - Herno in Sweden and Australia’s Four Pillars.
‘Arguably one of the best gins in the world regardless of genre - York Old Tom is a must try, must taste, must have offering.
It's an unmissable gin in a sea of gin. It's so good there's not enough superlatives to do it justice.’ - Spirits Kiosk
'A delightfully elegant and complex nose of juniper, spice, and flower blossom. On the palate, juniper is at the fore, before a exceptionally well-integrated liquorice sweetness that lingers on the finish and leaves you wanting another sip.’ - International Wine & Spirit Competition
'Absolutely love York Gin's Old Tom … this one is a beaut.’ - Susy Atkins, Sunday Telegraph
