Hayman Distillers

Base map data ©2017 GeoBasis-DE/BKG (©2009), Google

The original company of Hayman Distillers was founded in 1821 and acquired in 1863 by James Burrough, the great grandfather of the current chairman, Christopher Hayman. James Burrough created the world-renowned Beefeater Gin. Although Beefeater Gin and James Burrough Limited were sold to Whitbread in 1987, the Hayman family retained part of the business and continued the tradition of distilling and blending gin and other white spirits. The defining characteristics of Hayman’s Gin include: use of "Marjorie," a small copper pot still that only makes Hayman’s gins; 24-hour maceration of botanicals, for extra concentration; and the use of the "Hayman 10" botanicals, all classic English gin botanicals, carefully sourced and blended to show intense juniper notes without any flavor spikes that would make the gins less versatile. The "Hayman 10" are: juniper, lemon, orange, cassia cinnamon, Ceylon cinnamon, nutmeg, angelica root, orris root, coriander seed, and licorice root. Each Hayman’s gin recipe emphasizes a few of these botanicals, for an aromatic focus, but overall, Hayman’s gins are classic, intense, and versatile.

    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

    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.

    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
