Greenhook Ginsmiths is a craft gin distillery in Brooklyn, started in 2010 by brothers Steven and Philip DeAngelo. They use a very innovative and unorthodox method of distilling: they have a custom built copper pot still specifically engineered to work under a vacuum, which removes air pressure from the still, allowing them to distill at temperatures drastically lower than ordinary stills, preventing the delicate aromas of the botanicals from being cooked by excessive heat. This makes a “lively and aromatic spirit that perfectly balances juniper with equal notes of herbal, floral, and citrus”. The Old Tom Gin is their rendition of the classic style of 18th century England that was used to make classic gin cocktails. It’s distilled from corn, giving it a fuller-bodied expression, and aged for two years in bourbon casks before being finished in Oloroso Sherry casks, adding spice, depth, and complexity.
