Hayman’s Royal Dock Gin
From: Hayman Distillers
First supplied to the English Admiralty in the late 19th Century, Hayman’s still make their Navy Strength Royal Dock Gin by hand in London to this day. The style is bright
and bracing but not at all overpowering with a brilliant balance of juniper, coriander and citrus and a softly nuanced mouthfeel.
Bottled at a traditional Navy Strength of 57% ABV, this hearty style is suited perfectly to mixing a classic Pink Gin. Also wonderful in a traditional True English Gimlet, originally mixed by combining the sailors’ daily tot of gin with the lime ration provided to fight off scurvy.
