For the guy that enjoys his gin, a bottle of Old Tom Gin would be a great gift. Created by local micro-distillery Ransom, the gin is "a historically accurate revival of the predominant Gin in fashion during the mid 1800’s and the golden age of American cocktails," the company says. We say the bottle’s pretty and it tastes darn good. $37.
