The sun never set on the British Empire, and the empire’s far reaches brought exotic botanicals to the stills of London. Gin has been synonymous with the highs and lows of English society for more than three centuries, and the cocktail craze that captivated the late 1800s could never have happened without traditional styles of English gin, including London Dry, Sloe and Old Tom. Haus Alpenz’s lineup of true English gins respects historic traditions of distilling at a value that results from a direct relationship with England's longest-standing gin-producing family.

    Hayman’s London Dry Gin

    Hayman’s London Dry Gin

    England

    47.0% Alc/Vol

    The Hayman family is the oldest gin-producing family in London, dating to 1863. All three Hayman’s gins use the same 10 botanicals, in different proportions. Hayman’s is the only traditional London gin producer whose flagship, traditional London Dry Gin has its primary emphasis on citrus, while still maintaining the high proof and spicy midpalate of classic Dry Gin. This combination makes Hayman’s London Dry Gin extremely versatile for mixing refreshing stirred or shaken cocktails. The aromatic intensity of this gin makes it the ideal Martini gin, even at the classic 1:1 proportion. Full details

    Hayman's Royal Dock Gin

    Hayman's Royal Dock Gin

    England

    57.0% Alc/Vol

    The Hayman family and its forebearers have supplied this very same bright and robust gin to both the British Admiralty and trade from 1863. The family delivered to the Royal Dock of Deptford, the largest of the three Admiralty Victualling Yards. Bottled at the “Navy Strength,” 100 proof by weight equating to 114 by volume, Royal Dock delivers flavor with efficiency where other gins wither in dilution, such as at outdoor patios or poolside. Enjoy with tonic or in a Gimlet with lime, sugar, and ice. From the 10 Hayman’s botanicals, Royal Dock emphasizes angelica and coriander for pepperiness, and licorice root for a creamy texture.

    Hayman’s Old Tom Gin

    Hayman’s Old Tom Gin

    England

    40.0% Alc/Vol

    Hayman’s Old Tom Gin is a rich and rounded style of gin that was the gin of choice in the 19th Century, made to the family’s original recipe as then produced. Relative to London Dry Gin, the Old Tom style imparts a more complex and flavorful taste experience, with a slight sweetness that pleasantly rounds out the botanical base. From the 10 Hayman’s botanicals, the Old Tom Gin emphasizes juniper and two types of cinnamon. Old Tom gin is the key ingredient in classic cocktails such as the Martinez, Tom Collins and Ramos Gin Fizz. It’s depth and rich profile make for an ideal Aviation or French 75. Full details

    Hayman’s Sloe Gin

    Hayman’s Sloe Gin

    England

    26.0% Alc/Vol

    A traditional English liqueur made by infusing gin with the sloe berries of the Blackthorn tree which grows throughout the British Isles. Hayman’s Sloe Gin is made from a family recipe dating back many generations. Wild English sloe berries are gently steeped for several months with Hayman’s London Dry Gin before blending with just a little natural sugar to create this rich liqueur. Hayman’s adds no additional colors, vanilla, or other flavors. To the taste it is a rich ruby with bittersweet berry flavors and hints of cinnamon, clove and ginger. Drink in classic cocktails, sparkling wine, or with soda in a traditional fizz. Full details

    Smith & Cross Traditional Jamaica Rum

    Smith & Cross Traditional Jamaica Rum

    England (Jamaica)

    57.0% Alc/Vol

    Smith & Cross Jamaica Rum contains only Wedderburn and Plummer pot still distillates, famous for their notes of caramelized banana, exotic fruits and spice and earthy finish. This is old school rum, without the now-common infuence of other wines and spirits, chill filtration, excess dilution, or added sugar. The complexity and flavor depth of this Navy Strength (57%) rum makes it a cornerstone of classic rum drinks, and the best Jamaican rum for providing the richness that punches and Tiki drinks require. The mark of Smith & Cross traces its lineage to 1788 as one of England’s most prominent handlers of Jamaica Rum. Full details
