Hayman’s London Dry Gin

  • The ideal Martini gin, with aromatic intensity
  • Highly versatile in refreshing stirred or shaken cocktails
  • Works well with spicier tonics
  • The Hayman family has been making gin since 1863

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 London Dry Gin presents an intense, oily texture from juniper, angelica, and orris root, accented by a bit of citrus. This structure, along with the traditional 47% alcohol, allows Hayman’s London Dry to show intensity and focus when diluted. This gin is unmatched as a base for the full range of classic gin cocktails, from high-dilution sours (such as the French 75) to striking Martinis at any proportion of gin to vermouth. The aromatic intensity of this gin makes it the ideal Martini gin, even at the classic 1:1 proportion.

Mix with Dolin Dry Vermouth and orange bitters for a complex, herbal classic Martini, or Timbal Extra Dry vermouth for a briny, almost “dirty” variation. The citric backbone of this gin works exceptionally well with spicier tonics, such as Q Tonic or the Jack Rudy tonic syrup. Any classic gin drink works remarkably well with Hayman’s London Dry, a tribute to the intensity and versatility of all Hayman’s gins.

About Hayman Distillers

The Hayman family is the oldest gin-distilling family in London, dating to 1863. Company founder James Burrough, the great grandfather of the current chairman, Christopher Hayman, created the world-renowned Beefeater Gin. All of Hayman's gins are true English gins–produced just as they would have been over 150 years ago. The defining characteristics of Hayman’s Gin include: use of three small copper-pot stills; 24-hour maceration of botanicals, for extra concentration; and the use of 10 classic botanicals in varying proportions depending upon style. (The "Hayman 10" are juniper, lemon, orange, cassia cinnamon, Ceylon cinnamon, nutmeg, angelica root, orris root, coriander seed and licorice root.) Intense juniper notes prevail in each versatile and balanced gin: London Dry Gin, Old Tom Gin, Sloe Gin and Royal Dock Navy Strength Gin.

About Gin/Gin Liqueur

Gin is a neutral spirit flavored with juniper and various botanicals, including coriander, angelica and lemon and orange peel. It is rooted in the 15th-century Dutch juniper spirit Genever, whose malt-forward character contrasts with descendant gins such as Old Tom (lightly sweetened, rounded) London dry (sharp, angular, dry), Plymouth (mild, flavorful), Navy (potent and intense) and New West/Modern (neo-classic to unique). Gin has long been used in Great Britain as the base for fruit, floral and herb liqueurs, giving rise to the warm-weather tradition of gin “cups.” Full details
