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. Full details
