Hayman’s Old Tom Gin
Many people are unfamiliar with True English Old Tom Gin. Dating back to a period when gin was more richly flavoured, it remains a family favourite to this day.
The gloriously generous quantities of botanicals used in the Hayman family recipe create a bold citrus and juniper pine character that is rich and rounded on the palate with a beautifully delicate finish. And the subtle underlying sweetness keeps it true to the original style of Victorian gin first enjoyed in 19th Century England.
Enjoy this True English Old Tom in a classic Martinez cocktail, a refreshing Tom Collins or a rich and full flavoured Old Tom and Tonic.
