York Gin Old Tom is a Victorian-style dry gin slightly sweetened with a small amount of herb-infused sugar syrup made in the kitchen of one of Yorkshire's finest restaurants - the Michelin-starred Star Inn, Harome.
The syrup was created by Chef Patron, Andrew Pern, who also runs York's Star Inn The City and Mr P's Curious Tavern as well as the Star Inn the Harbour, Whitby.
The syrup's key ingredients are foraged from local hedgerows and the Star Inn's kitchen garden - the White Alba Rose also know as the Dog Rose (the White Rose of Yorkshire), along with Bronze Fennel and Star Anise. Angelica and pink peppercorns (Baie rose de Bourbon) complete the complex syrup.
