Hayman’s London Dry Gin

From Hayman Distillers

Unlike other London Dry Gins available today, Haymans is a true English London Dry Gin is distilled to a 150 year old family recipe using a traditional two-day process.

Steeping the long-standing family recipe of just ten botanicals in English wheat spirit for a full day before distillation creates a fresh, bright and classically balanced gin with crisp citrus, subtle notes of exotic spice and the remarkable depth and complexity traditionally associated with the London Dry style.

Uniquely suited to the classic cocktails of the 19th and early 20th Century that were built around the style, they recommend enjoying their True English London Dry’s crisp complexity in a refreshing G&T or a fortifying classic martini.
