Old Tom Gin
Those who know their juniper-based spirits will of course be aware that Old Tom Gin harks back to a time when gin was more richly flavoured and had a touch of sweetness. It’s often considered the bridge between Dutch Jenever and London Dry. Hayman’s version is very Victorian, packed with sweet citrus like a lemon posset and a refreshing hit of pine and juniper. A wonderful drop sipped with tonic water and a side of oysters, cockles or fish and chips, or we love it mixed into a Martinez – a cocktail that was born around the same time as Hayman’s. Coincidence?
The Hayman family can trace its lineage through five generation of gin producers back to 1863. While the gin boom is creating crazy innovation and an ever-increasing number of distilleries, Hayman’s stays loyal to an old school English gin style. Having said that, their ten botanicals come from all over the world; juniper from Macedonia, coriander from Bulgaria, angelica root from Belgium, lemon from Egypt, orange from Spain, cinnamon from Madagascar, cassia bark and nutmeg from Indonesia, orris root from Morocco, and liquorice from Uzbekistan. This intoxicating blend go straight into their three stills Marjorie, Karin and Miranda where it begins the two-day process that lovingly creates Hayman's.
