Tropical Gin & Tonic
As the name implies, Tropical Old Tom is the perfect tool to 'tropicalise' a favorite gin cocktail. Porter's Gin Founders often find themselves making Tropical G&Ts. To make your own, simply add premium tonic water and, if you can find it, fresh passion fruit.Back to shop
When you smell Tropical Old Tom, you will sense moments of violets, ripe cherry, raspberry jelly, blueberry rice pudding, passion fruit and perfumed guava jam. Followed by a waft of green tomato leaf, conference pear, and marjoram.
When you taste Tropical Old Tom, you will feel a rush of passion flowers, strawberry, poached pears and honeysuckle & lychee. This is followed by passion fruit, spiced apple turnovers and Oolong tea, which lingers to the next sip.
Tropical Old Tom is made in Porter’s distillery, conveniently nested in the basement of The Orchid, the founding team’s bar in Aberdeen, Scotland. The gin is produced in one of three stills that the team keeps running perpetually before it gets sent off for bottling.
balanced, sophisticated, and just the right side of cheeky
Tropical Old Tom is the second gin in Porter’s line up. As with all things Porter’s, the Old Tom respects tradition while continuing to innovate — both in flavour and technique. With a founding team of industry and cocktail veterans, the first priority of Porter's Gin is to craft thoughtful, flavourful gins that are equal parts refined and fun, built for mixing into your next cocktail.
passion fruit, white tea and guava
Like its predecessor, Tropical Old Tom is the product of a dedicated and resourceful R&D phase — tasting and making tiny tweaks to garner complex yet balanced flavour profiles. Distilling these carefully selected botanicals at low temperatures is key in superior flavour extraction. The bright, natural juicy flavours of guava, passion fruit, and white tea in Tropical Old Tom bolster a timeless juniper base to tropical stature.
The Brains Behind It
Made in a bar, not a boardroom
Porter's founders Alex, Ben, and Josh emboss this phrase on the bottom of each of their bottles because, well, it is! In 2015 the team started playing with cold-distillation to bring flavours out of ingredients for creating new and interesting cocktails, before long they decided to create their own gin. They are a team dedicated to creating high-flavour, high-quality gins using modern techniques that are built for mixing, sharing, and creating better drinks.More on the Brand
