Hayman’s Vibrant Citrus Gin

  • Rich juniper backbone complemented by distilled citrus peel
  • Vivid flavors of mandarin, pomelo, kumquat, and Persian lime
  • Adds zest to a Martini, Gin and Tonic or Gin and Soda
  • This is a twist on the family’s Victorian-era fame for introducing citrus into gin

The Hayman family was the first gin distiller in London to use citrus as a key botanical more than 150 years ago. Hayman's Vibrant Citrus Gin has a rich juniper backbone complemented by the vivid aromas and flavors of distilled citrus: mandarin, pomelo, kumquat and Persian lime. The depth and brightness of this gin is the result of distilling the sun-dried fruit peels together with the classic ten Hayman’s botanicals, as part of a unique two-day process. Hayman's Vibrant Citrus adds zest to a Martini, a burst of freshness to a Gin and Tonic or Gin and Soda, or citric depth to any gin sour.

About Hayman Distillers

An original in their category, the Hayman family is the oldest gin-distilling family in London, having started their work in 1863. Company founder James Burrough was the great-great-grandfather of the current chairpersons, Miranda Hayman and James Hayman. Burrough was a true pioneer in the history of gin, innovating both process and profile. Not long after the Single Bottle Act of 1861, which allowed gin to be sold in bottles, Burrough set out to develop cleaner and more expressive profiles made possible with glass packaging. He employed a more expansive set of botanicals than his predecessors, and drew accolades as the first to employ citrus. The resulting profiles set a new standard that, for many drinks enthusiasts, remain benchmarks for traditional English gin.

From the earliest days, Burrough produced a variety of gin styles. There was a navy-strength gin that was procured by the Admiralty at the Royal Dock on the Thames. Highly prized was his Old Tom gin, the leading style of the Victorian era. A counterpoint to this was his ‘Black Cat’, a London Dry style. A variation on this London Dry was ‘Olde Chelsey’, named for the distillery’s location. Decades later, his company gained recognition overseas with a different London dry gin named to honor the palace guard. At the dawn of the cocktail revival in the early 2000s, the family once again drew accolades with the reintroduction of their Old Tom recipe.

All of Hayman’s historic gins maintain the same production methods and recipes from their inception over 150 years ago. The defining production methods of Hayman’s Gin include: use of three small copper-pot stills; 24-hour maceration of botanicals, for true concentration; and the use of 10 core classic botanicals in varying proportions depending upon style. As a group, Hayman’s Gins have the depth, balance, and rich juniper core to provide the ideal base for the complete canon of gin cocktails. Full details

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
