The unique and traditional gins of the Hayman family. 150 years gin production.
The Hayman family has a long tradition in the art of distillation dating back over 150 years. It all began in 1863, when the pharmacist James Burrogh inaugurated in London a successful production of medicines, beneficial syrups and gins. The activity was carried out with great success by his son and then by his niece Marjorie Burrough, flanked by her husband Neville Hayman, the creator of the Gin Beefeater in 1951. This glorious family tradition was carried on with great passion by their son Christopher Hayman who in 1987 sold the James Burrough Ltd to found a small independent family-run distillery, the Hayman Distillery, and return to the origins of the gin.
Today the Hayman Distillery is led by Christopher and his sons James and Miranda. Christopher is considered, with his 40 years of experience, as one of the biggest specialists and best gin distiller in the United Kingdom: just think that for decades he has followed and controlled the production of Gin Beefeater, leading to success and perfecting the secret recipe . Its modus operandi involves the use of a traditional discontinuous copper alembic nicknamed Majorie rather than that of distillation columns, cheaper and easier to use. This is because the Hayman family wants to produce high quality gins with a unique and traditional style, far from the homologation of industrial gins.
The gins of the Hayman family are born from unique and original recipes, developed with great skill by a careful selection of botanical herbs macerated in wheat alcohol. Juniper, coriander seeds, lemon and orange peel, angelica root, cassia bark, iris root, licorice and nutmeg are the main ingredients of high quality gin Hayman, to be tasted smooth or in exceptional cocktails.
