Langleys Old Tom

Langley’s England brings a refined Old Tom, a classic, mildly sweeter, gin style of Victorian London into a modern setting.

Back in 18th Century London, unlicensed gin sales had been made illegal. Production of the liquid went underground and drinkers looking for a tipple would need to look for wooden plaques on walls of watering holes carrying a picture of a black cat. They would insert a coin and whisper a password – a shot of gin would be poured down a pipe and out of a hole underneath the cat’s paw.
