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.
The Hayman family and its forebears 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. From the 10 Hayman’s botanicals, Hayman’s Royal Dock Navy Strength Gin emphasizes angelica and coriander for pepperiness, and licorice root for a creamy texture. Bottled at 57% alc/vol.
