Tom Bullock may have been the finest bartender to ever practice the art of mixology. In 1917 he became the first African American to write a cocktail book, The Ideal Bartender. It is a book that is still used by mixologists and cocktail lovers today. Tom Bullock is said to have helped create and popularize many cocktails, including the Gin Gillette.
Tom Bullock was a trailblazer in the art of cocktails. He made a name for himself at Louisville’s Pendennis Club and then St. Louis Country Club. Mixing for everyone right up to and including President Teddy Roosevelt.
We’ve gone ahead and updated Tom Bullock's original recipe for old tom gin. Imported from London. Enjoy it straight or mix it up with fine sugar and fresh limes, and taste a cocktail just like Tom would have made.
