Captain Dudley

Deep in the origins of Old Tom gin is the man Captain Dudley Bradstreet. He's credited for allegedly finding (and exploiting) the loophole in gin laws by dispensing gin through a plaque on the side of his property wall. By preserving the server's anonymity, he was able to profit for 3 months before other establishments followed suit.

Inspired by the history behind this Old Tom style gin, Cam and the Four Pillars team developed this cocktail with a nod to Captain Dudley and his cracking tales.
