Hayman’s English Cordial Gin
“The very best bin, That holds liquor in, Is the one that contains the Cordial Gin”
For the latest chapter of our story we welcome another original English gin. This time, with a warm, spicy and earthy character that’s truly full flavoured.
Each limited release bottle of Hayman’s English Cordial Gin is carefully crafted to reflect the style enjoyed in the 1800s, with a little help from our good friend and drinks historian David T Smith. Old archives reveal that cordial gin was one of the most luxurious gins of its time. And that by the mid-1800s, many people had begun to choose the sweetened style, which worked in harmony with its botanicals to enhance the distinctive flavours. Bottled at 42% alc, our English Cordial Gin retains a delicate softness, perfect for mixing cocktails or sipping on its own. It’s a gin that’s sure to impress. But with only 1,500 bottles available, we’ll understand if you want to keep it to yourself.
