Since 1863 five generations of our family have acted as custodians of the True English Gin style – providing an unbroken lineage dating back to the original gin boom. Throughout this 150 years, we have been proud to distil True English Gins, using family techniques and processes handed down through the generations.
Today, in an era where most gin producers have focused on what’s new, our family remain committed to championing the True English Gin style first developed by our 19th Century forebears – protecting the classically balanced styles that lie at the heart of most classic gin cocktails.
Unlike other gin available today, our full range of True English Gins are distilled just as they would have been over 150 years ago – benefiting from the authentic period recipes and traditional two-day process that lie at the heart of creating the famously balanced English Gin style.
Hayman’s is the only traditional London gin producer whose flagship, traditional Hayman’s London Dry Gin has its primary emphasis on citrus, while still maintaining the high proof and spicy midpalate of classic Dry Gin. 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.
